Synthesizer part from Trumpet Concerto No. 2 ’Terminator’

17 minutes
Modern classical music

Trumpet Concerto No. 2 is written for Solo Trumpet and a bank of Synthesizers. The performance can either use the backing track which is available or you can program the synths to play the loops and sequence sections themselves. This combination of instruments creates interesting sound possibilities which I’ve tried to exploit in the piece. The music takes the fantastic soundtrack for The Terminator as its starting point and weaves a complex web of sections, each characterised by its relentless repeating rhythms which some epitomised the movie, The sound world conjures up the Electronic age of the synthesizer in the 80’s and has the same relentless drive as the robot in the movie.

This upload is a revised version which is in a better key , faster and more playable.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
