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.

Trivia:

Has two daughters: Alexander, and Zoe. See more »
