Music composed and conducted by Lee Holdridge for the 1985 horror comedy written and directed by Rudy De Luca (High Anxiety, Silent Movie, Caveman), starring Jeff Goldblum, Ed Begley, Jr., Geena Davis, Carol Kane, John Byner, Jeffrey Jones and Michael Richards. Also included is the composer’s music for the 2006 animated comedy television pilot, KORGOTH OF BARBARIA. Known mostly for his dramatic film music, these two projects show the composer walking the fine line between humor and action, playing straight to the broad comedic moments of the projects while also finding opportunities to underline their sillier sensibilities.

TRANSYLVANIA 6-5000 is a distinctly unfunny horror spoof from 1985 about a couple of tabloid reporters sent by their editor to modern day Transylvania to uncover the truth behind a reported Frankenstein sighting. While there, they encounter other classic horror film staples such as a wolf-man, a female vampire, a hunchback and an unraveling mummy. Each creature has a twist that makes them ultimately less monstrous than the local villagers have been led to believe. Recognizing that their film needed some help, the producers turned to composer Lee Holdridge for the musical duties. For the musical score, Holdridge chooses to play straight man to the film’s attempts at broad humor and also manages to add some clever asides with a variety of musical quotations from familiar composers such as Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Dvorak, Wienwiaski and Shostakovich. In addition, the composer pokes fun at the Glenn Miller standard, Pennsylvania 6-5000.

KORGOTH OF BARBARIA, created by Aaron Springer of DEXTER’S LABORATORY and SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS, was a half-hour animated comedy television pilot that aired on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim in June, 2006. Presented as straightforward as any other barbarian hero, KORGOTH was, in fact, a parody of the sword-and-sorcery genre, presenting the exploits of a Conan-esque hero noted for his bad temper, laziness and slovenly habits. The score is a fusion of trash/heavy metal guitars and broad symphonic adventure music, providing an edgy propulsion appropriate to the show’s satire while supporting its heroic fantasy conceptualization. Sadly, only the one episode aired and the show was dropped before production began on any further episodes.
