    I wonder how much of the TR/AR scores and the modern NIN sound are actually AR.

    It really varies on what you're listening to - if it's wandering piano, that's Trent 100%. If it's programmed beats, 100% Atticus. And everything inbetween is a big ol' mixture.
    Compare Hand Covers Bruise (No Piano) and Hand Covers Bruise basically

    whoa, goddamn, seriously? Atticus makes all the beats.
    What a trip. Thanks Sheepy.

    Is there some sort of interview where it's stated that AR exclusively does "beats"? That seems far-fetched to me.

    He doesn't exclusively do beats, but he does most of the beats. Much like Trent doesn't just do guitar and piano, but he does most of that.

    Note his role on most nin albums is programmer, a role Trent never holds

    "Programmer" seems like it could be a nebulous term in NIN-world. Like, Keith Hillebrandt would make entire textures and soundscapes that ended up on THE FRAGILE. It could also mean co-ordinating software and hardware and making sure anything called upon is ready to go on demand.

    Then there's what we've seen is that AR records TR live performances and takes, TR goes out for lunch and comes back to see that AR has reconstructed an entirely new track from those takes.

    I can only assume it's a catchall because each song or project has varying workflows.

    Trent has said that he is more of a performer than a programmer these days, improvising on instruments or creating loops, and Atticus is the "computer guy" who collects it all and puts song structures together.

    That just confirms my fears... TR really needs to drop Atticus from the next NIN record and invite some new people on board. You know, just for the change. Keep him for scores and HTDA though.

    He did that for the last record and invited the Arcade Fire guy to be a producer and obviously thought it sucked. He talked at length about it on the In Conversation With extra worrying that he was getting too comfortable with Atticus and Alan Moulder

    NIN really need to cover Brains Out tbh, just to crush Closer as the most pole-dancable NIN song

    Ranking all of the songs the two have composed for film, I'd have to put Intriguing Possibilities at #1, and it really isn't close.

    Seems legit... or I just spent 99 cents on a nice ambient track by a really good faker.

    What do we think? First guess would be soundtrack, but it seems weird they'd release it as a single with no mention of the movie it's tied to. Another option is they've made an instrumental album together (possibly a soundtrack that never went forward). It could just be a standalone single, but it doesn't seem meaty enough for that.

    have a friend who's going through a rough time right now so i made her a mix the other day. put driver down on there because i still think it's one of the best things trent has ever done. it's also insane to me that it was created around the same time and for the same soundtrack as the perfect drug, since it is so drastically different.

    So, with the "For Your Consideration" versions for each score, does any of them have additional tracks that didn't make the main cut? Or just some had different titles?

    I find this Atticus-only soundtrack encouraging re: new music, if he is occupied with a soundtrack then he's likely got extra material for consideration. That excess as music makers know can produce other projects, Angels or NIN. If Reznors not on this soundtrack then perhaps he's relegated himself to the band.

    the more i listen to atticus' scores that trent doesn't have a hand in, the more i wonder how much trent is really doing when they work on stuff together. atticus is fucking brilliant.

    I think that Reznors handles the production, rhythm sections & dissonance, which are the strengths of NIN. I'll have to give this record a listen, but the other Ross LP I've heard left me with the impression of a trad-sounding Hollywood production. I'm happy for Reznor in that he's found collaborators and a pal that are on the same level. Ross is great

    With Reznor and Ross also serving as the music supervisors, the group worked in tandem to “compose a blend of music with a cohesive vision, resulting in the score for Before the Flood along with an album to be released in October.”

    Other stuff!!!
