BUYSOUNDTRAX Records presents the soundtrack for BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME, featuring music composed and conducted by Robert Folk (TOY SOLDIERS, POLICE ACADEMY, THERE BE DRAGONS) for the 1991 fantasy film produced and directed by Sylvio Tabet and starring Marc Singer (V, THE BEASTMASTER, DALLAS), the lovely Kari Wuhrer (SLIDERS, EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS, KING OF THE ANTS), Sarah Douglas (SUPERMAN II, CONAN THE DESTROYER, RETURN OF SWAMP THING), Robert Z Dar (MANIAC COP series, TANGO & CASH) and Wings Hauser (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, VICE SQUAD, SIEGE OF FIREBASE GLORIA) in the role of Arklon.
To compose the music for BEASTMASTER 2, Sylvio Tabet brought in composer Robert Folk after having been impressed by his musical contributions to the cult horror film TREMORS. From the very beginning, Tabet made it clear to the composer that he was under no obligation to reflect the music from the first BEASTMASTER film in his sequel score, as the new story was quite different from the original film. Folk s music gives the film a tremendous amount of energy, playing straight man to the film s humorous elements and lending credibility to its formulaic plot. The story s mix of primitivism and modernity is reflected in the score s abundant sense of musical contrast, as Folk flavors Dar s barbaric world with broad musical strokes and violent orchestral interaction, emphasizing the Beastmaster s confidence while designing more sympathetic melodies for Jackie once she s become stranded in his primitive home.
The BEASTMASTER 2 score was recorded with a 96-piece orchestra in former East Berlin - the reunification of East and West Germany having brought down the Wall that divided the city in October, 1990.
Robert Folk is a graduate and former faculty member of the famed Juilliard School in New York City.
