Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Brad Fiedel began his career as a keyboard performer with singers Hall and Oates before turning to film scoring, working primarily in the horror and action genres. His breakthrough came with the dynamic underscoring for James Cameron's "The Terminator" (1984) which in turn led to more mainstream work on such films as "The Big Easy" (1986) and "The Accused" (1988). He reunited with Cameron on the pulsating and driving score to the sequel "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" (1994) and for "True Lies" (1994). Fiedel has also scored over 40 TV programs, including the TV-movies "Playing For Time" (CBS, 1980), "Second Serve" (CBS, 1986) and "Rasputin" (HBO, 1996). Among the show themes he composed are those for "Midnight Caller" (NBC, 1988) and "TimeCop" (ABC, 1997).
