Mark J. Cairns
Profile:
Long-time “Airwolf” fan, Northern Ireland-based producer and designer, Mark J. Cairns in collaboration with original composer Sylvester Levay is famous for producing the Airwolf Themes 2CD soundtrack album for the high-flying, mid-1980s American action television series series Airwolf (1984-1986). The program concerned a supersonic military helicopter, codenamed Airwolf, and her crew as they undertook various missions, many involving espionage, with a Cold War theme.

The soundtrack was created over a five year period and is interesting in that it was all done by-ear by the self-taught musician.

By the turn of the Millennium the ‘Airwolf Themes: 2CD Special Limited Edition’ had become very collectible gaining regular eBay bids (being sold by people who’d reserved and bought more than one copy) in the region of $350-$510 per set. On the 18th March, 2000 the bids culminated in a new World Record for a television soundtrack when a set sold for $715.03 on eBay. This was subsequently broken on 25th March, 2004 when a Washington-based seller sold his spare 2CD set for $765.03, and then for a third time $981.74 on the 10th March, 2006 remaining the ‘Most Expensive Television Soundtrack of all Time’.

He produced a new soundtrack for the Airwolf TV show in March 2014 called 'Airwolf Extended Themes' 2CD Special Limited Edition, in conjunction with Orchestrator & Associate Producer, Jan Michal Szulew. There were 42 brand new tracks on this release, split between Airwolf Main Themes, and Episodic score.
