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.

The character of Dar, valiant warrior who can telepathically communicate with animals, was introduced in Don Coscarelli's 1982 fantasy film, THE BEASTMASTER. Very loosely based on concepts in Andre Norton's 1959 science fiction novel of the same name, Coscarelli's film transposed Norton's extra-planetary adventure novel to a barbaric sword-and-sorcery world not far removed from that of CONAN THE BARBARIAN, which had preceded BEASTMASTER into production and was released some months earlier in the same year, launching a new but short-lived trend of heroic fantasy movies. While the film did not enjoy huge success at the box office, it did develop quite a strong cult following, thanks to frequent screenings on cable television and this prompted the filming of a sequel nearly a decade later, helmed this time by Sylvio Tabet, who served as executive producer on the original film. Filmmaker Jim Wynorski and his frequent collaborator R. J. Robertson came up with the story and drafted the first screenplay, which was then revised by Tabet along with Ken Hauser and Doug Miles. The story had little connection to the events of the first film and the tone is definitely much lighter.
BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME finds Dar (Singer) confronted by his half-brother Arklon (Hauser) and a sorceress named Lyranna (Sarah Douglas) who have opened a dimensional portal to present day Los Angeles. When the portal opens on our side, it accidentally captures trendy L.A. girl Jackie Trent (Kari Wuhrer), propelling her into Arklon's world. Befriended by Dar, the Beastmaster brings her back through the portal to Beverly Hills, in pursuit of Arklon and Lyranna before they can obtain a neutron bomb, with which Arklon plans to return and rule their own world.

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. Since completing his doctorate, Mr. Folk has composed and conducted the musical scores for over 65 feature films, including ACE VENTURA: WHEN NATURE CALLS, NOTHING TO LOSE, TREMORS, THE NEVERENDING STORY II: THE NEXT CHAPTER, TOY SOLDIERS, POLICE ACADEMY, KUNG POW! ENTER THE FIST, BOAT TRIP, BACK IN THE DAY, AMERICAN PIE: BAND CAMP and most recently, ELEPHANT WHITE, UNDERGROUND, THE SECRET VILLAGE and THERE BE DRAGONS.
Mr. Folk has also composed and conducted numerous concert works including Symphonic, Vocal and Chamber music compositions. His Ballet "To Dream Of Roses," composed for the Osaka World's Fair, was recorded by the London Symphony Orchestra. Mr. Folk is a member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers.
He is a prolific songwriter and producer, and has conducted many prominent orchestras including: The London Symphony Orchestra, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Berlin Radio Orchestra, The Munich Symphony, The Dublin Symphony Orchestra, The Moscow Symphony Orchestra and the London Sinfonia.
Previously released on compact disc in 1991 and out of print for many years, BUYSOUNDTRAX Records brings BEASTMASTER 2: THROUGH THE PORTAL OF TIME back to compact disc with remastered sound by Digital Outland. The booklet includes new liner notes by author Randall Larson, including new insights from composer Robert Folk on this exciting large scale orchestral score.
