This is cool. This YouTube channel does extended (~1 hour long) mixes of tracks from soundtracks and some other music. They just posted On We March today, but they also have The Four Of Us Are Dying, Lights In The Sky, 2 Ghosts I, and The Day The World Went Away.

The Night Drive from PD is such a genius track. It sucks me back into its world every once in a while. I want it to last 80 hours.

I know, right? Like, I sincerely hope that there will eventually be a compilation album of the "best of" the score work. I'd totally buy it. It would have to be two discs, though.

It really feels like TR and AR have hit their stride. A lot of their earlier stuff did have a "samey" feel to them, with some really feeling like cut offs from Ghosts (not to say that's a bad thing) while they found their feet, but now it feels like they are really getting creative with what they are releasing, and they're releasing some fucking fantasic sounding projects that not only sound distinctive to each project but continuing their consistently high quality at a machine gun pace of release...i honestly do not know how they are doing this!

It's still beyond impressive, but I get the feeling they don't "throw anything away". I could very easily see TR+AR sitting down to make certain parts of Bird Box and ending up in WAVES territory. Put another way, "everything" ends up released in some form or another (eventually).

The more I think about it, the more the Watchmen score makes me wish we had seen the completion of the Millennium Trilogy by Fincher/Reznor/Ross. I feel like it gives us a bit of a glimpse into what they might have come up with for the other two films.

I've honestly always viewed the box set as all three discs being each movie of the trilogy, since I knew it was never going to actually happen.

I want Trent to sing more on some of these scores. At least 1 or 2 songs per score. "Minute To Breathe" is the only song he has put his vocals on. Thats a travesty for one of the best singers around

That would be cool, but it's not really how scores work. Generally, the only time a film composer does a song with vocals is for the end credits, so it would be unusual for them to do more than one (Dragon Tattoo being an exception). And of course, plenty of films don't call for an original song at all.

I like the story with A Minute To Breathe, where Trent brought Atticus a list of vocalists for the song, and Atticus basically said, "fuck you; you're singing it." :)

With 10+ feature film/tv releases now, their body of work has grown to form quite a lengthy catalogue. I have to imagine at some point we will get a smaller venue tour under the TR+AR banner where they just perform work from their scores. Fuck me I want that so bad. Got me thinking what a set list for a show like that would look like? Heavy from the Fincher trilogy, maybe a couple from Before the Flood and Vietnam War, a good chunk from Watchmen and Birdbox, with 1-2 other randoms (Juno, green lines, Halloween, mid 90’s, maybe even Tetsuo or Quake?) The only full score I don’t see getting any love is Patriots Day (which is not an indictment on quality but just the fact the experience there seemed to leave a bad taste in the mouth for whatever reason).

Would they play songs most noticeable from the films themselves? The ones that sounded best live? Or the ones they were most proud of?

Would you want imagery from the films in a background video? Or prefer Original art, lighting and effects? Or a more striped down and raw no frills performance?

I think Hand Covers Bruise and What If We Could? would be likely but after that there would be so many places that set list could go. Oh the possibilities.

One day.

They could take a cue from John Carpenter's recent tours. Nothing fancy, just them playing with images from his films re-edited and screened behind them.

I'd still like to hear them do more stuff with orchestras. What they do could translate given the weird sounds you can make with classical instruments.

Doing something close to what is illustrated here, but adjusted to their sensibilities, would be something.

I always thought a mix of small orchestra and traditional rock band instruments would work best for TR+AR is they ever do a live thing.

I'd definitely be on-board for a score tour, but i'd imagine a load of NIN fans who aren't into the scores would get annoyed they aren't getting a NIN tour. That and i can't imagine it would ever reach overseas so i'd never see it :( unless i move to canada (which is something i've definitely been thinking about)

Not a TR / AR score, but if you're a fan of those (and why the fuck are you here if you're not), I would strongly encourage people to listen to Ludovico Einaudi's 2015 album Elements. It's not that it would be mistaken for a TR / AR score, but I think they're somewhat similar thematically and production-wise. (And I can assure you I'm not a paid shill for a 64 year old Italian composer.)

He's got a TON of good stuff, but this is the one that's been giving me some Trent and Atticus vibes lately. Spotify link if anyone's interested: https://open.spotify.com/album/37tZkSp1KSIfh9Jt5WF8fY?si=FS575X-4SfudPfxbpCW47A

I was looking through the GEMA database (https://online.gema.de/werke/search.faces#), and noticed these "additional" songs or alternate titles. I was unable to find the titles under FYC titles.

Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross // Complicit
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross // Dinner With Sean Muzak (this is how the song is registered in GEMA)
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross // The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (listed as alternate title for "Perihelion")

not that we know of. boys deserve a break, they've been pumping stuff out pretty solidly for the last couple years. and maybe they'll release some new NIN stuff and get people who don't like the scores to shut up for a little while ┐(īー`)┌

I think this'll be the first time since Gone Girl that there's nothing already announced on the horizon, that they've "cleared out the queue," so to speak. We didn't know about Before the Flood until it was just about to come out. We'll see, I guess.

I'd be fine with them taking a break if they need it, but i just get the feeling TR and AR aren't at all burnt out and actually have a pretty solid rhythm and work schedule for all this, i wouldn't be at all surprised if there was a secret project already underway. Thinking about it, when was the last year where we didn't have either a NIN or Score related release? 2011 maybe?...fuck.

Talking solely about new studio recordings, I think it's 2006, 2012 if you don't count HTDA. With Teeth the year before, Year Zero after. NINJA sampler with Non-Entity in 2009. 2012 only had the An Omen EP. After that it's HM, then Gone Girl, Gone Girl outtakes, then back to yearly score work.

If I had been working as much as Trent and Atticus, I would want to take some time off after the last few years. I doubt they will, but they haven't had an extended hiatus in a long time. A lot of established bands take a couple years off on a regular basis.

wizfan
12-22-2020, 03:37 AM
This song sounds a lot like 24 Ghosts III. Probably another case of a composer being forced to emulate a TRAR temp track. I think there was also another track in the movie that sounded like 14 Ghosts II/Magnetic.

Counterpoint: On more than one occasion they've mentioned feeling creatively energized by the scoring process and the eagerness to get into new NIN material. They're not ones to rest on laurels so I'll assume that is genuine. And just because nothing's been announced doesn't mean things aren't in motion. I think we'll have substantial new NIN at some point in 2021.

With that said, they've earned a break if they want it. They're not beholden to any contracts that I'm aware of so do what you want. If they've decided to plow forward with NIN...awesome...my ears are ready. If not, that's fine too.

I've been very behind on TR&AR scores, so I listened to Waves yesterday (haven't seen the movie). "Feedback Loop" scared me more than Ghosts VI, or anything else I've listened from TR&AR so far. *shudders*

Well this is interesting. IMO the line between Social Network and Soul goes through Mid 90s. This was / is my initial impression and I haven't really given it much thought as to why I made that connection...might be the more upbeat nature of M90s and Soul. And I think the arrow between Mank and Soul should be flopped.

The chart is kinda hard to read without the typical navigation captions (like "start here" (Social Network obv.), darker --> here, more melodic --> here, etc.)
Also I feel like Welcome Oblivion is gotta be somewhere in there between GG and Dragon Tattoo because their sound palettes really overlap in many tracks.

I think fillow just meant that including some sort of short commentary of why things are connected might make it easier to follow or help others to make more sense of it. Even if it's just one or two-word descriptors like: "Ambient," "Calm/Peaceful," "Anxiety-inducing," "Digital," "Organic/Analog," "Big Band," "Heavy/abrasive," "piano-based," "synth-heavy," etc.

David Fincher is directing an assassin movie titled The Killer for Netflix (https://www.indiewire.com/2021/02/david-fincher-killer-netflix-seven-writer-fassbender-1234619059/) (the first project of his exclusive four-year deal he signed with them) with Michael Fassbender being eyed for the lead role. I'm excited by the sound of all of that, but it also got me thinking how likely it is that he'll tap TR & AR for the score again! I'm hoping they're already on board for the score and that we get more of the aggressive kind of stuff we got in the Watchmen score!

I love both scores, but I honestly think Soul is a juggernaut that can’t be stopped, I hope it does win as well for Jon Batistes sake! I think both Soul and Mank have been nominated in other awards too where Soul still won (were they both nominated at the Globes?)

Gotta love the jumbled mess that is Spotify and last.fm when listening to TR/AR... so last week I apparently listened to 29 TR tracks, 41 AR tracks and only 19 credited to "Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross"... :D

Seems like Gone Girl and Dragon Tattoo are the only scores, where Spotify seperates Trent and Atticus. Is there a reason why? The numbers above don't necessarily add up either...

Don't know where to post this, but last year's icelandic Netflix show "The Valhalla Murders" not only reminded me very much of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" or a general Fincher asthetic, but also the soundtrack by Petur Thor Benediktsson. He finally released it on Spotify and I hope there's a physical release along the way. Anyhow, if you enjoy TR/AR's work you will get a kick out of it, I guess:

I can see Patriot's Day maybe happening because, well, they announced it... sadly I think the Waves score and even Ghosts V–VI are going to remain digital-only for the foreseeable future. There's too much backlog at the pressing plants to make room for three sorta specialist electronic instrumental double albums, much as I love them all. They would almost have to break up "Wounds Heal" over two sides of vinyl, though... there's a pretty natural spot for a side break 'round about 7:44, I think, but they'd need to fade it out and back in on the next side where the last two tracks would fit with the second part on the final side.

I mean, if Alessandro is still having his stuff put out on vinyl, TRAR/NIN certainly could get their scores and Ghosts out as well. Yes, it would take a while. But they could get the ball rolling at least.

Yeah, the difference there I think is that Ale signed with a label, where that's possibly making it easier (most record labels have standing orders, and preferred status because of their existing relationships with pressing plants etc.)... but independent releases? Not saying they CAN'T do it, but clearly other stuff is taking priority right now.

The issue with Ghosts V and VI is that they may have been formed out of their score for The Woman In The Window, which is owned by 20th Century Fox, which is now owned by Disney. I admit that I'm not certain about the legality of the whole thing given the fact that it's been released for purchase on a few sites, but it seems like something that's very under-the-radar at the moment, and considering that it's been over a year since it was released, I don't really see them doing a re-release of it down the road, especially if there are legal hurdles to doing that.

Nothing NIN does is "under the radar." If there were any issue with releasing that legally, it wouldn't have been released at all.

Trent released Non-Entity and Not So Pretty Now without Interscope's permission (he admitted as much in the fan Q&A he did around the time), so it's not unheard of. The fact that it was released for free, and only as an MP3 release, tells me that it wasn't something that the powers that be officially signed off on, or if they did, they did it was certain caveats.

It was not. It was also released commercially for purchase in all formats on most retailers. It's also on all streaming services, which is revenue-generating. This is nothing like Non-Entity or NSPN which were released promotionally. Or Closure or the Broken Movie which were done under-the-table because the label wouldn't give them a real release.

Also, it's speculation that these came from The Woman In The Window. Reasonable speculation, perhaps, but speculation nonetheless. Even if that were the case though, since they have an official release, you can bet that all the legal issues are cleared. You'll notice it's © The Null Corporation, not © 20th Century Fox. When they withdrew from the project, most likely they made an arrangement like, "you don't have to pay us, and we'll keep all the music we wrote."

I can see Patriot's Day maybe happening because, well, they announced it... sadly I think the Waves score and even Ghosts V–VI are going to remain digital-only for the foreseeable future. There's too much backlog at the pressing plants to make room for three sorta specialist electronic instrumental double albums, much as I love them all. They would almost have to break up "Wounds Heal" over two sides of vinyl, though... there's a pretty natural spot for a side break 'round about 7:44, I think, but they'd need to fade it out and back in on the next side where the last two tracks would fit with the second part on the final side.

I see Wounds Heal as a single side with no splitting -- it would be on its own but would fit. Especially because its a quieter track, there would be no issue fitting it onto a single 33 1/3rpm side.

Except then you'd have to break it out of the tracks on either side that it flows into and out of. Personally, I would prefer they keep the running order the same... but shuffling it around is another option.

Not initially. I remember people trying to figure out where they could buy it from, especially in hi-def. Considering how previous releases were done (at least in terms of direct downloads from the official site), it was a fairly slow rollout to other services.

Yes, it's always been speculation. I've never believed that they just took their score and dumped it out there as the next Ghosts installment. However, I don't think it's unlikely that the albums grew out of those sessions, and if that's the case, there might have been some legal hurdles to climb over before they could release it. Again, it's all speculation from us. All we have to go on is the music and how it was released.

It was literally the day after the free drop on NIN.com

I guess my memory is a bit hazy. Forgive me, it's been a hell of a year-and-a-half. :p

Agreed. The film itself was okay, but the score features some of the best work they've done.

Not to get off track so I thought I'd post in the random column, but a good friend of Trent and Atticus, Ioanna Gika is collaborating with Atticus' brother Leopold Ross in the new Britney Spears documentary.
