German speaking composers have a long tradition in Hollywood with Max Steiner, Erick Korngold and Hans Zimmer to name just a few. Now add multifaceted Swiss born composer Kurt Oldman to that list. Kurt has already received critical acclaim for a number of his film scores. He recently signed on to score the upcoming horror thriller, “Killer Holiday”, starring Michael Copon (“One Tree Hill”). “With horror films I can really go wild. I always like to see how far I can push it musically”, says Kurt. He is also working on a new HBO pilot called “Elwood” and has another feature film in the wings, “0000”, a terrific SciFi film directed by Eddie Alcazar.
Kurt enjoys living in Southern California, he says: “It’s nice to not have to dig my car out of snow every winter, although I miss skiing in the Swiss Alps.” We totally agree!
