Via the unofficial Hesitation Marks FB page, it appears there's another collaborative score in the works: http://kenburns.com/films/vietnam/

Another person involved hints at Trent and Atticus's involvement on his site here: http://davidcieri.com/#hello-hello saying "THE VIETNAM WAR (https://www.facebook.com/kenburnspbs/videos/10154223740352169/) - KEN BURNS AND LYNN NOVICK: A film I had the great good fortune to score - I feel Immense gratitude in being included among two other exceptional composers (who I have admired for a very long time) and musicians who wrote music for the film. It will premiere on PBS in September 2017.

The playlist discovered on John Crawford's Spotify playlist here: https://play.spotify.com/user/johnkraw/playlist/4sEW8tCPsKapD5tqAmCI0J lists the artists as TR / AR along with track names and lengths. The album is titled Vietnam WIP 2-5-16. Being dated back in February makes sense seeing as the series will be a "10 part, 18 hour documentary series." Who knows what stage it's in now.

Having a poke around Google, and it looks like Yo-Yo Ma could be involved as well. Random as hell, but found it here (http://theowl.nyc/) (scroll down to Jan. 12, 2017, or just search for Trent Reznor et al.)

Cieri’s film-scoring work includes Ken Burns’ TheVietnam War (with Trent Reznor and Yo-Yo Ma, Florentine Films, in post-production)


NEXT DAY EDIT: I would love to hear a new version of "Fire Water Paper: A Vietnam Oratorio (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fire_Water_Paper:_A_Vietnam_Oratorio)" written by one of my favorite composers, Elliot Goldenthal.

Double post for clarity:

Yo-Yo Ma will be performing as part of The Silk Road Ensemble (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silkroad_(arts_organization)#The_Silk_Road_Ensembl e) for this (I'm a nerd)! The ensemble is always evolving and can be rather large.

Found information here (http://www.innerviews.org/inner/vo.html):

Yo-Yo Ma recently took an interest in Võ’s explorations as well, resulting in her performing with his Silk Road Ensemble on the soundtrack for The Vietnam War, Ken Burns’ forthcoming documentary.

Cross-posted, as this interview has the most thorough information about the project yet. Pretty interesting.

That photo caption though :( Edit: It was an HTDA picture of Trent and Rob with Rob labelled as Atticus. They've changed the picture now and added the PBS YouTube video.

I had the honor & pleasure of seeing Mr. Burns speak in Aspen over the summer to a very small crowd of maybe 100-ish people. He was doing a special presentation that related to the election, and so he showed clips from his various docs that had to do with the elections of the given era. Ken is fiercely intelligent and well spoken. I highly recommend looking up his Stanford Commencement speech if you haven't seen it.

After the presentation, he did a Q&A. I so, so wish I knew he was a fan of Trent & Atticus's work, otherwise I would've asked him about that. Then again, how could I have known? Instead, I asked what it was like to be such a direct influence for Christopher Nolan and Interstellar. He was very gracious. While I asked my question, he leaned forward, listening intently, and made sustained eye contact. When answering, he spoke directly to me – and somewhere in his answer he mentioned the Vietnam doc (and no joke, probably 8 or 9 other films that are simultaneously in the works).

I also spoke to him very briefly at the small reception that followed. He's a deeply kind, deeply respectful man. It was an honor. I admire him even more now knowing that he sought out Trent & Atticus! Amazing!! I absolutely cannot wait for the full Vietnam doc.

From NYT..

“The Vietnam War,” which premieres in September on PBS, will ultimately feature more than two cumulative hours of original music from Mr. Reznor and Mr. Ross, along with reworked bits from Nine Inch Nails songs and their scores for “The Social Network” and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.”

So much going on these days it's getting crazy man!

Well shit, I have no idea what to expect from this one! could be very interesting mix of music to fit all the themes involved with a documentary of this caliber. In terms of war, machinery, bombing and creating sounds for fear and chaos...I imagine sounds from Broken or Tetsuo. But creating sounds for calm scary surreal moments, sounds from Social Network/TGWTDT would fit super well.

So much new NIN/Reznor/Ross content coming out! it's getting hard to sit, enjoy, and absorb everything! Have barely had a chance to listen to all the new DE re-releases, and NTAE!

I hope the "reworked" bits from NIN songs don't wholly count as one of the NIN "works" TR promised in 2017. But, believe me, I am excited for this series.

All these investigations, leaks, exclusive informations and stuff is a big part of why this community follow and like to follow every TR's work.
At the end it gives us "reasons to buy", most of this shits stay between hardcore fans that will give all the money they can to TR and his team... team that you joined... Do not bite "the hand that feeds" my friend.

Looks like one of the NIN tracks in the doc will be "19 Ghosts III" or "22 Ghosts III"

Link just redirects to the USA Today homepage for me. Had to actually do a copy/paste. Weird.

edit: man, does it feel weird to anyone else to see Trent sitting next to Ken Burns? Not weird in a bad way at all, as I have nothing but the utmost respect for both of them as extremely talented and accomplished people in their fields.

It's just...ya know...growing up watch Ken Burns documentaries on PBS and listening to The Downward Spiral, I never exactly put those people together.

The description on nin.com gets me really excited for this score.

But still... 9 months to go till autumn. I wonder why there is already so much promotion for this score while the first interviews for Patriots day came only on the day of the nationwide release. And even information about the making of NTAE is still very sparse.

01-16-2017, 01:01 PM
I'm a bit confused by the nature of this though. All the descriptions call it a 10 episode documentary but it is also being called a film too? Is it a film or TV series and are TRAR scoring both or one of them?

AFAIK it will be like Burns' other documentaries and debut on PBS. HOWEVER, there is recent precedent (OJ Made in America-5 parts, 7 hours) for showing a long documentary briefly in a couple theaters to qualify for the Oscars.

This is just a semantics thing. Technically, all documentaries are films; the way it is edited does not change that fact. A TV series is an entirely different animal.

Its awesome when TR crosses over into things im already excited for, like El-Ps Ill Sleep When Your Dead and the theme for Black Ops 2.

I love Burns' The War and The Civil War series was what got me into documentaries when I was younger. I haven't bought a score since TGWTDT, but ill probably pick this one up along with the inevitably expensive blu-rays of the show itself.

I wonder, because sometimes you can hear their influences pretty clearly, if TR/AR took any inspiration from the Apocalypse Now score, which was one of the first major films to use electronics instead of conventional orchestras.

well, wendy carlos was using electronic instrumentation for a WHILE before this came out. i would say A Clockwork Orange (which came out in 1972) is a better example of a major film using electronics for score.

You know, it sounded weird to me, but I had a bit of an epiphany: I was watching a recent doc about the Oklahoma City Bombing and a lot of the music sounded like it could have been TR+AR.
And it occurred to me that Trent and Co aren't cutting edge young artists anymore and those of us who grew up listening to OG nin are getting old!
That being said, I do think that TR+AR are largely responsible for creating the current trend of electronic scores. It's just that the industry is catching up.

True, but Kubrick didn't use her work exclusively, which became a source of friction by the time she (and Rachel Elkind, the Atticus Ross of this analogy (http://www.wendycarlos.com/rachel.html)) collaborated with him again on The Shining; he would get too attached to the orchestral versions of songs and then reject anything they came up with to replace it.

I get fucking goosebumps hearing Ken Burns speak about the music of Trent and Atticus: it's a titan of one field recognizing the titans of another, and I'll always be so moved by that. (still can't believe I met Ken last year. Almost glad I didn't know that TR & AR were contributing at the time, otherwise I might've lost the power of speech entirely!)

It's a UMe release, so that means it should be available through all the normal retail channels.

Just wanted to point out that for anyone who preordered at PBS.org back when this first went up... they have discounted the price of all of the packages. You may want to cancel and re-order. (Bluray Package was $125 when I ordered initially and is currently $100)

Also.. if you're not interested in the free journal and all that, Amazon has the DVD for $70 and Bluray for $75 right now. Though then you're not really supporting PBS, so.. you're call.

i went to a barnes & noble on the release date for before the flood last year. as is now obvious, that didn't go so well. i at least got a kick out of the angry middle aged man working there alone bizarrely repeating back the title to me but continually mispronouncing "flood" (like food with an L) and then getting highly defensive when he thought i suggested he didn't know the word.

i thought as consolation at least i would eventually get the film on blu-ray, but alas that was not to be either. we see here the difference between PBS and natgeo.

It hasn't always described the soundtrack though.

When I got the e-mail update from Amazon back on Aug. 7, I went right to the website and saw it listed for $13.99, but with no vinyl format pre-order. I checked the listing at the time: it was 17 tracks credited to Trent and Atticus and over 90 minutes of music. I never would have bought a soundtrack that had 70s songs on it, and made sure it wasn't that version before pre-ordering. It wasn't until WorzelG pointed out a yesterday that it was the 70s soundtrack listed with the incorrect cover art that I noticed it had been changed from what it was originally listed at.

Now the listing has been changed again to show the correct cover art. But it doesn't really matter to me, because an Amazon customer service rep e-mailed me this morning assuring me that the pre-order I placed was for the Trent and Atticus score, and that I'll still be getting it for $13.99.

Your email confirmation of the order should also state that it was the score, I'd think.

From what I've seen, this entry always had "soundtrack" in the title. You must have really been in there early if it had anything else. Immediately following the nin.com entry, my first look was on Amazon and never saw a score listing.

Defensive much? I was implying that maybe you had made a mistake, not that you were lying.

As seen in this thread though, the announcement about the configuration and details of the soundtrack and score was not announced until Aug. 18. Neither you nor anyone else posted about the Amazon listing that apparently went live on Aug. 7 when you got your e-mail. It sounds like they may have initially put in details for the score, but changed the listing to the soundtrack, once the full details were released.

So, if you look at your Amazon orders (https://www.amazon.com/orders), and the item in your order links to the Soundtrack page (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074NLPZW9), then congratulations, you'll be getting a copy of the soundtrack. Of course, if it originally said the score when you ordered and and it says soundtrack now, then, of course, Amazon will accommodate your complaint, but you will still have to deal with that return shit.

If you confirmed with Amazon, then they should know what it is since they told you you're getting a product not currently listed on their site.

Interesting that TR and crew are giving away 50 signed 3xLPs today at Reckless Records in Chicago...I guess there won't be a pre-order for the vinyl and they will just *poof* be in stores tomorrow...

Sorry eversonpoe :( I hate that you didn't get one.

we have been talking about it, a lot, if you look at the last bunch of posts on this thread. mostly we've been talking about how to actually GET it. kind of hard to discuss the music when no one has it in hand and it hasn't been released digitally, yet.

Well, now it is available, I don't see much people talking about it around here. I'm sure, if it was an "official" NIN release, there would already be 50 pages in this topic :-) Anyway, I'll listen to it and give my humble opinion. But I'm sure it's a great soundtrack, I haven't been disappointed by any TR/AR score thus far.

One question and one comment:

1) Psyched this is released on Spotify! But the runtime is roughly 1.5 hours. Is the 'official' release 3 houra of music or did they just *provide that amount for the series?

2) TR+AR are mentioned briefly when discussing the score and soundtrack during the middle of this podcast: https://www.samharris.org/podcast/item/the-impossible-war

Haysey
09-15-2017, 07:32 AM
I don't know about anyone else, but some of these tracks i'm getting a "Quake" feel from, especially Strangers in Lockstep.

Makes me want to hear TR+ AR have a go at doing a game Score, or a Si-Fi film maybe.

...that and i really do like this Score!

Listened to it on Spotify at 7am this morning, while sat alone beside a Turkish swimming pool will probably count as the weirdest first listen to a Reznor project for me!

That aside, takes a little while to get to the tracks that I would listen to as much as some of my earlier soundtrack favourites of theirs, but the 3 song run starting with Before Dawn is great.

I look forward to getting my hands on the CD's once back in the UK, which should be waiting on my doormat!

First impressions. I like:
- tropical vibes in Before Dawn & Haunted
- power in Strangers in Lockstep & Justified Response
- Ghosts V in What Comes Back
- electronic background in Four Enclosed Walls
- intensity in The Forever Rain
- everything in Before and After Faith, wins the competition, hands down. And knees. And head. Hands and knees and head down! Hey!

I don't like:
- repetitiveness in A World Away, boooring

Sounds very dragontattooish (like producers wanted) with some TSN samples. I'm okay with that because these are my favorites. :] It's much better than Patriots Day and Not The Actual Events combined. So i'm happy and cautiously optimistic about NIN future. I'm still waiting for something... bigger.

It seems to be a trend on new releases. I always have something preordered then I cancel it cause I can get it somewhere else then it magically appears available for the normal 2-3 days. I would order it from Amazon if you don't want the Sandbag hassle free piece of mind. If you want the CD it's available at Sunrise Records (seems to be only music chain available in Ontario)

There's a lot to be learned about the current state of things by seeing what happened with the Vietnam War. It's a great time to look back and see why we failed then and continue to fail now.

Gone girl

If you consider the "rules" of the Null numbers, I don't think it's actually Gone Girl, because that was released solely by Columbia, Nullco wasn't involved at all. I've seen other people speculate that Null 03 might be Juno instead, because that was released by Nullco (The Null Corporation II specifically).

But it's all arbitrary unless Trent, by some miracle, decides to announce it. You could probably assume either one.

Didn't recognize anything from previous works, no. The score album is 1.5 hours or so, as is the 2xCD soundtrack of songs from the era. Yo-Yo Ma & The Silk Road Ensemble's contributions haven't been released yet.

Disappointed with the first episode.

I can't STAND when shows or films use score pieces from other films that were made specifically for those films. I really wish they hadn't used the TSN and Dragon Tattoo tracks.

Also not a big fan of the music editing... There were 2-3 points where they started 'Less Likely' from the beginning, played for a minute and then it went to the next scene...few minutes later...started 'Less Likely' again at the exact same beginning cue...played for a minute...next scene. Seemed very lazy and phoned in.

His Civil War doc is on my shelf and I've watched the whole thing MANY times. The fact that Trent and Atticus are doing the score is just a HUGE bonus for me.

For those wanting nothing but brand new TR AR tunes...this isn't some average 2 hour movie that'll be in the discount dvd bin at walmart in a year. It's an 18 hour "definitive" account of that conflict and that era. Considering the length of the film, you're going to hear the same some a few times...and considering the importance of a project like this, TR probably said "Use anything you want!!"

The wretched shows up in Episode 4.
Also a version on the beginning of the end.

this is so, so, so good. "torn polaroid" is the most beautiful piece of music TR&AR have composed together, it actually brought me to tears.

How's the packaging for the vinyl? Anything particularly interesting?

Same question for the CD.

CD is on its way from amazon (didn't realize they had them at reckless when i was there).

it's three (sturdy cardstock(?)) picture sleeves in a sturdy outer slipcase. side F is blank but still has an image printed label. nothing too fancy but a vast improvement over, say, the fragile deviations.

it also sounds pristine, just like all the recent pressings.

I think it was a genuine price mistake. Best buy has on occasion cancelled orders with pricing mistakes, but for the most part, they have honored the orders. (in my experience, anyway.)

CD is a three panel (much like The Fragile or GWTDT).

One listen in, some of it falls in with GG and GWTDT but then some of it is more aggressive and creepy sounding than most of the songs on either of those. It would be interesting for Trent and Atticus to score a horror movie.

Early favorites: Before And After Faith, Justified Response, Other Ways To Get To The Same Place, Strangers In Lockstep, and What Comes Back.

I will likely edit in more comments as I get more into it.

I ordered a copy from Amoeba when they put some up. And then also Best Buy for the snafu price. Let's see which one arrives first. But both will surely be in way better shape than ordering from Sand(Shit)bag.

it may be moot if the price doesn't return/get honored, but i believe so. a lot of online retailers had/have artists, track listings, and cover art all mixed up between the score and OST, but as more item listings became available, i started checking the UPC codes. this one, 602557769982, matches the vinyl score.

this was a great find even if i miss(ed) it.

Not ordering the vinyl yet, mostly because its fucking 40 bucks + shipping (the cheapest option). CD is on its way tho.

A triple LP at 180g weight in a gatefold jacket...is a steal at $40...just saying.

not a gatefold, it's a slipcase. which is actually much nicer and less likely to get damaged.

but yeah, i agree. $40 is really good.

Regarding the Best Buy listing, the UPC on it matches what is on Discogs for the 3LP set, so it is very likely that. Also, I don't think the soundtrack release is getting a vinyl pressing, just the 2CD is all I've seen. I guess we'll find out is they honor the price or not.

this is my favorite soundtrack that has come from TR+AR. There are moments that remind me of dragon tattoo without sounding too familiar, and some songs have a year zero vibe and some that have a fragile deviations era sound. vietnam is probably the most NIN sounding score yet.

Just got through my first listen of the soundtrack - I like it a lot! To me, it's like a mash up of Ghosts/Gone Girl with a smattering of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' in there.

Early faves: What Comes Back / The Right Things

I know this thread is more so for the actual score and not the actual show (couldn't find a post anywhere for that); but I love that there are "Ghosts" sprinkled throughout the show. I feel like the Ghosts fit into the show almost as much as the original score!

Mine arrived from amazon in a ‘guaranteed easy open mailer’ last night at 10:17pm. Thought it must have been fouled up, but no, the poor driver had a tow trailer in addition to his truck.
Ill have a listen on my way out today. Ordered both CD and LP.
2 notices- null corporation on the sticker 06 and LP 3 feels thicker than 1 & 2.
i wish ghosts/deviations/fragile would have come with the slip case.

technically the third LP is thicker than the other two because none of its material has been carved out on one side.

got my CD from amazon, nice double digipack. still feels weird that i'm so obsessed with TR&AR/NIN/HTDA that i have to buy things on CD (like, literally feel an un-ignorable need to do so).

Strangers in Lockstep is my favorite - so far. The little bleep/glitch @ :46 is also very interesting. I envision an army of robots marching on the battlefield to this song.

Before and After Faith is also very good, great pace, and sonically different than the other songs on this score.

Also Torn Polaroid is very interesting, at about 3:53 this low hum starts in the back ground - very interesting sounds.

Overall, if I were to describe this score in one word, I would say... somber. I don't think that's a bad thing, I wasn't alive during that era, and have only started to learn more about it thru the current PBS documentary. I honestly wasn't expecting the score to be this gloomy, or somber, but... the airing isn't over yet, so I'll reserve any further judgement! :)

Your CD packaging have the sticker on it? I hate they put stickers on the digipack. I’m afraid to try and peel it off.

The vinyl jacket is thick, sturdy and well-made, suitable for holding 3 heavyweight LPs. As are the inner record sleeves.

In other words, Trent and Craw likely weren't anywhere near this one from a preparation standpoint..
