In this video, composer Alex Ball dissects the classic synthesizer score to Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
“I thought it would be interesting to cover off the Terminator 2 score, as its creation is very specific and we can play with the exact sound sources Brad Fiedel did nearly 30 years ago.”
Ball provides an entertaining look at the soundtrack, focusing on the sampling and synthesis techniques that help define the Terminator 2 score. Composer Brad Fiedel made extensive use of the Fairlight CMI as a creative tool, pitching samples down by extremes to create a sonic signature for the film.
Ball also looks at how artifacts of the era’s technology are a key part of the soundtrack’s iconic sound.
