First track from that Banksy project has appeared on the internet.

Direct link to track:http://walledoffhotel.com/media/green-lines.mp3

There are tags and art in the mp3. It's listed as track 8 of 11. Hopefully we get a whole album of TR+AR and not a compilation.

I fucking LOVE this track! It sounds like two people playing one piano.

why is this not front & center on nin.com?!

BTF & PD were fine, but this right here...

beautiful yet menacing... imo, a groin kick to all the 'Westworld' soundtrack fanfare (not that it's undeserving)... "sure, you can make pop music sound cool on a player piano, but check this out..."

they could've turned this into an infinite loop easily...

wishful thinking = more to come...

Wow, that's beautiful -- every time I start to think I'm tired of soundtracks from them they go and they make something else that I really love and I have to take it all back.

Is anyone else having trouble downloading the file? I just opened it and it's not playing in iTunes.

It's really childlike at the beginning, almost like he used the sounds his kid made while playing around on the piano and built from there.

These guys are always so on point with their music. I can only hope that they continue making music (in any form) for years to come.

Vitamin String Quartet: Check out this cool rendition of NIN we can do on a piano..

NIN: Hold our beer..

Seriously though, this track is beautiful. Nobody gets me with just a piano like TR, and never will. Background Noise from the GG soundtrack, Adrift & At Peace and Lights In The Sky are perfect examples of this. Dude took the piano lessons he was forced into as a child and made it the foundation of a sound universally respected and admired..

Man, they went full Alexandre Desplat with this one. I'd watch a whole movie with a soundtrack of nothing but TR&AR-programmed player pianos. Like, I don't know, a surreal indie rom-com-drama. Or an animated surreal indie rom-com-drama. A sequel to Anomalisa, perhaps?

EDIT: I was thinking about Wes Anderson when I made the Desplat reference, and, holy crap, I just found out that he is indeed making a stop-motion film (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isle_of_Dogs_(film)), just like Anomalisa. TR&AR helped me predict the future. Thanks, TR&AR. You're cool.

the song was just posted on Null Corp youtube channel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxgaIodUpuw


Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross are ‘performing’ nightly at Bansky’s Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem for the next several weeks. ‘Green Lines’ is a new song written specifically for the player piano in the hotel. If you’re staying there or in the neighborhood, stop by for a drink. http://walledoffhotel.com

At least Trent didn't make another new nullco account for this song like he did with A Minute to Breathe.

Is this the only thing they've written for this thing? (If anyone knows that.) It's really lovely to listen to and it would be cool to hear more like it.

My friend Iris was at a wedding in Tel Aviv last week and told me she stopped by the hotel a few nights ago for drinks. She's not a huge NIN fan, but she told me the piano played for "about forty five minutes or an hour". I've been sending her a shit ton of NIN to see if anything sounds familiar, but she's "not sure if any of that stuff was played". Whether it's all new or she's just awful at this, I have no idea.
She also said the music was "spooky".

The absurdist hardcore NIN nerd in me seriously wants to book a whimsical, week-long vacation to Bethlehem, where all I do is sit at the bar of this hotel listening to the piano and contemplating the next phase of my life over fine scotch..

There's an interesting note on nin.com : TRENT AND ATTICUS ARE “PERFORMING” NIGHTLY AT BANKSY’S WALLED OFF HOTEL IN BETHLEHEM FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS. THE DUO HAVE CREATED ARRANGEMENTS OF NEW AND OLD MATERIAL SPECIFICALLY TO BE PLAYED VIA THE PLAYER PIANO IN THE LOUNGE OF THE HOTEL NIGHTLY AT 8PM. IF YOU’RE STAYING THERE OR IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, STOP BY FOR A DRINK.

Those don't look like they're officially licensed. Pretty sure that's just someone selling low quality prints from a photograph. Probably not even one they took themselves.

a bit off topic, but rumours are intensifying that the artist behind Banksy might be Robert Del Naja, founding member of Massive Attack.

I know this isn't the first time that someone claims to know Banksy's identity, but there are quite a few signs (http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/news/banksy-robert-del-naja-massive-attack-art-who-is-he-identity-real-name-graffiti-music-similarities-a7805741.html)that point to Del Naja. This doesn't prove anything in the end but I personally really like the idea of a possible connection between Banksy and Massive Attack, which could explain why Massive Attack were supposed to play at Dismaland (but they didn't) and why TR, Hans Zimmer and other musicians were asked to play at the Walled Off Hotel as they probably know each other anyway

Long shot, but is there a rip of this floating around at about 96kbps or whatever it is on the site?

I mean, it's listenable at that bitrate considering that it's just a piano but I wanna hear all those little transients and note interactions!

The NullCo version is 128 variable AAC @ 44.1kHz (Original; obviously there's other quality options on YouTube)

The website version is V5 (about 78 max) MP3 @ 48kHz. It also contains Album/Track/Artist metadata, as well as embedded artwork. You can access/download directly here:

wait, does it mean that the output file you get when exporting a video still maintains all the metadata in the audio channel? I didn't know that... So what happens if there are two audio tracks in the same timeline/export?

Sorry for being a bit off topic. Nice find!

Mmhh ? encapsulation kinda works like zip, obvioulsy why would it remove metadata when it can add even more ?
I don't get your dual audio question, sorry.

I have no idea why but I always thought that, when exporting a video, premiere/FC/avid/etc would do a video+audio mixdown and the exported result would be two flattened video+audio files held together in a container/codec - hence my question about losing the metadata. I did not know that in fact the audio track and metadata would be still intact. Sorry for the dumb question.

Oh you're right: youtube are encoding, but yes they choose to keep some metadata

Is there any new regarding this at all? I wouldn't really expect someone to have audio of this, but there is no word on what songs were performed? Is this still going on now? I can't seem to find any info on this other than the official page stating that they are "performing" every night at 8:00.

I'm very interested in hearing what the other compositions were, and also if this will actually ever come out or if it's going to go the way of the other Definitive Editions and Patriots Day.

This is correct. I only asked TR 3 questions and that was one of them. To quote both Atticus and Trent they said, "It's some of our strongest work and we are both very proud of it. We are hoping to release it on vinyl and in the works with it."

I loved the one track snippet on the website, hence why I asked that to them. I didn't want to ask a question that 1,000,000 people before me asked.

Okay, so I know I'm late to the party, but can someone please explain to me how "Green Lines" is at all related to "In Motion"? Like, I get that we saw that in the metadata, but at least to my ears, the two tracks sound nothing alike. What am I missing?
