Personal Quote:

Terminator [The Terminator (1984)] was very difficult because I was using many different synths and sequencers and because I didn't have MIDI available on many of them I had to sync them by hand. This is why the main theme is in a very odd time signature. The looping of the Prophet 10 was just a little short of a complete measure.


His most famous piece is the The Terminator (1984) theme tune.
