  1. Cool post Justin. I wondered what the guy was up to. Nice to see he's doing good and turning over a new leaf. But in my book he'll always be the Terminator guy. Not that that's a bad thing at all. beer

    The problem is that studios are becoming so paranoid about the films' box office income, that creative freedom is limited. I guess the new trick is to find a balance behind creativity and what is forced upon you.

  3. I turned in my 40 interview questions to him a couple days ago; up to him at how long he wants to take to reply back.

    Yes, yes -- rest assured I asked about the T2 master tapes.

    FRIGHT NIGHT

    Label: Intrada Special Collection Volume 183
    Date: 1985
    Tracks: 11
    Time = 61:39

    At last! World premiere CD release of the Brad Fiedel score for popular Tom Holland horror movie starring Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Roddy McDowall. Fiedel creates terrific themes anchoring picture in reality, then takes off in wild directions with florid, intense material as vampire horor elements transpire. CD is presented from 1/4" two-track stereo master elements courtesy of both Sony Pictures and composer Fiedel. Some elements were drawn from actual 15 ips mixes, others were from slightly noisier 7 1/2 ips tapes. Rather than meld the two, we are presenting the surviving 15 ips cues as an opening suite, followed by the full score from the 7 1/2 ips tapes. Brad Fiedel performs. A scary addition to the Intrada Special Collection!

    That's just bizarre, unless he's done a lot more than just his film music. (Of all the film composers to have an "autobiographical musical"..!)

    He's actually written several symphonic concert works and whatnot. There's far more to Fiedel than the TERMINATOR clings and clangs!
    I am extremely serious.

    You deserve to be terminated for that joke.
  10. So there's a new edition of The Terminator coming out April 8, on vinyl, compact disc, and download. I'm thinking of buying it on CD, as it's such an iconic score for a great film. And also because Brad was actively involved in presenting it the way he felt was appropriate. The flaws on earlier releases have apparently been corrected.

    And boy does that artwork look fantastic. I'm almost tempted to buy the vinyl just for that. shocked

    People who pre-order it, already get access to the download version.

    As am I....except I keep telling myself I will never, ever, ever actually play it.
    But damn, it's cool!

  12. I don't even have an LP player at my current set-up. I always wanted to buy a new one... phew...
  13. Funny, back in the day I didn't think too highly of the score... too cheesy, too synthy, too much droning going on. By the time I got seriously into film music, the theme was reprised in 1991 way more effectively and much more awesome sounding. T2 is still one of my most-listened to scores today.

    Now, all these year later, the first one is probably the most appropriate score written for a film about a unstoppable killer robot. That metallic approach, the clanks, the screeches and the groans are absolutely spot on. cool

  14. Indeed. I mean, I already felt that way back then, but nowadays, with T-1000s and T-Xs and God knows what on every corner in the sequels, this old school synth music music fits even better with this old, "low-tech", brute-force T-model. And the LP design is fantastic, so...

    The theme is great, and as we've said MANY times over the years, the score works like gangbusters in the film. Just perfect. But I wouldn't listen to it on album if people paid me to do so. Doesn't matter how "cool" the packaging is.

    Exactly.
    It's pretty much the best score I know I can't listen to (separately).
    So to me it would just be a 'show case' item, which kind of defeats the purpose.

    I love it as a score and an album. It's so 'unpleasant', it's actually fascinating. But then I love moody, dark scores just before going to bed, and this certainly counts as one.
