Let's hope for some tidbits regarding the score from the panel doing the screening.

Neat. Maybe it's time to fan-create a living playlist of TR/AR single track projects (Juno, Halloween, Call of Duty, The Fourth Estate, Fear the Walking Dead, Tetsuo, etc).

Shoot, I just posted about this in NIN spotting. Doesn't look like the trailer's been posted though, so here's a link (http://www.sho.com/video/61230/the-fourth-estate-official-trailer).

Isn’t the “theme music” just the music playing during the opening credits?

Usually, yes.

The Guardian - https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/apr/30/the-fourth-estate-review-doc-trump

Describes the score as, "
An apocalyptic score from Atticus Ross and Trent Reznor really drives home the “dear lord, the world is coming to an end” atmosphere, even when juxtaposed somewhat comically with the banality of typing and clicking."

This one could be interesting, thanks to Bing for digging up this article since I'm not a Guardian visitor! :)

The score (minus the "theme music") was composed by H. Scott Salinas.

Animal Kingdom if you count recycling 12 Rounds!

Missed a huge chunk of the premiere, but I heard 6 Ghosts I somewhere around the last 10-15 minutes and also 28 Ghosts IV about 45 minutes in. Gotta watch this on demand.

I believe Trent & Atticus did more than just the theme as some Ghosts tracks were used and others sounded kinda like T&A's style.

Watched all 4 parts on Showtime On Demand and more Ghosts tracks show up. I heard like five Ghosts tracks in Part 4 alone, including 3 Ghosts I, 7 Ghosts I, and 13 Ghosts II. Some of the Ghosts tracks have been reworked, like 13 Ghosts II had an added lead guitar.

What was the track playing during the credits of episode 2? Sounded like Trenticcus but nothing I recognized!

Also, I hope they officially release the theme song soon – I really like it!

Yeah, sounds like Trenticcus to me. I wonder if they gave them some unheard Ghosts leftovers. I heard a couple of pieces that sounded very them.

They've been shopping around a dozen or so instrumentals to music supervisors, so it's possible the people who did this doc licensed one or two of those.

I love the theme song. Sounds like it's cut down from something bigger, I hope they make it available soon.

Caught the opening of The Fourth Estate last night, episode 3. Didn't know anything about TR & AR doing this, so it was a nice surprise. Nothing ground breaking, but the theme was good and gutted to see it's not available to buy yet. I'm not certain but I'm pretty sure the first bit of soundtrack after the theme was TR & AR too. Didn't recognise it from Ghosts, but I've not heard that in a while so it may have been.

Was a quality version of this ever released?

I've pulled the 5.1 AAC from the raw stream file, decoded to wav, downmixed to stereo and isolated the theme. I've saved the file as wav and flac for those that want them, and re-encoded to 320kbps mp3 as well for those that want convenience and don't care about any quality loss. PM me.

EDIT: For those interested, I've also added a 5.1 wav as well.
