    Bird Box

    Sounds interesting. Anyone read the book?

    Yes, it was incredibly creepy and uncomfortable for me, and I loved it.

    They finished Bird Box 2 hours before hitting the stage in Atlanta. Thought that was pretty crazy how they do all this stuff on the road.

    I had no idea that they're releasing Bird Box in theaters for an Oscar push. That should be interesting. Can't wait to hear the score.

    I've been looking everywhere for info on this OST with no luck. I hope it's not a digital only release. Something about not having a physical copy (either vinyl, cd, etc) makes it seem like i am missing something from the collection.

    Okay, because I actually want to see this movie and not just skim through it for music, I went to the end credits to check things out. At first, there's a piece that feels very Patriots' Day, nothing mindblowing for TR/AR, but over the majority of the end credits is what I've been waiting for since Reznor announced his would start scoring films...a creepy and intense piece of music MADE for a horror movie. There's a distorted violin loop and a lot of those wonky bell noises from Patriots' Day...I won't keep spoiling.

    Really looking forward to sitting down with the film.

    Attached is a screenshot from the credits.

    Maybe. Fuck Instagram.

    Seems like it's a movie that keeps the score in the background. Couldn't really hear much to be honest. Disappointing.

    This definitely seems like another digital EP release. I can't imagine that there's a lot of music for it.

    Guess we'll see on Friday.

    These tracks were in the end credits of the movie. I wonder if they just ripped it from there?

    It’s up on US Netflix. The score is very subtle. Fits the movie well. Need repeat viewings/listenings, but I’m digging it so far.

    Pretty excited to check this out. The five minute preview sold me pretty hard on it. I'm really surprised though that the soundtrack wasn't released today.

    Between this and the Jonah Hill "score", it seems like Trent is just saying yes to every film score that comes his way. I miss the grand rollouts for these big scores like Social Network and Dragon Tattoo....These last 2 have been very forgettable....The Jonah Hill one was a 4 song 12 minute digital download throwaway and this is more of the same

    The Jonah Hill movie had absolutely no budget and he begged Trent to give them whatever he could. So they came up with a small amount of compositions to use in the tiny little film that it was. Perfectly fine with that, especially b/c the output was very good imo.

    How dare they! They should tour to every city on the planet, and also put out a NIN record every year, and only release huge box-set sized soundtrack albums too! IT'S NOT FAIR.

    Have we heard any word on this from Trent Reznor or one of NIN's social media accounts?

    I wonder if this is one of the projects they mentioned in that Mexico interview that they are not content with the process.

    On the other hand they've been busy touring and are now probably in their well-deserved holidays. So considering that they apparently only contributed a small amount of music to this, the silence is not a big surprise either. Still I'm curious if there are any plans for a release of these tracks.

    They are working more like standard film composers, not elite ones (which they are)...They are at a level where they do not need to compose films or tv shows to pay the bills. They can be selective and choose what they want, so saying yes to Jonah Hill skateboard movies to dump out 4 songs that he can write in his sleep that he composed backstage in the most half baked way possible, or to say yes to some netflix show where 99% of the audience watching it wont give two fucks who the score came from doesnt seem prudent at this juncture of their careers. Carpenter and Morricone and Hans Zimmer do not say yes to everything that they get offered. Next we are going to hear how TR and Atticus are going to score a "very special episode" of Fuller House

    Orrrrrr.... hear me out...

    They just enjoy making music, and enjoy the process of scoring films. They also, if you can believe it, might also be collaborating with friends or, in Jonah Hill's case, fans, as a courtesy, or just entirely for fun.

    I know it's hard to grasp it, but not every musician makes career choices based on the individual needs of every fan.

    If you think a 4 song 12 minute digital download "score" is equal to the 2-3 hour scores of Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl, and that he put as much effort into these little 3 or 4 song scores as he did with the others...So be it lol....Thats like saying Bad Witch in all its 25 minute entirety is as big of a magnum opus as the 3 hours of The Fragile.....My point is dumping out these little 3 or 4 song quick toss-off scores seems like throwaways compared to the scores of Social Nework/Dragon/Gone Girl etc

    They've always been at that level.

    Carpenter and Morricone and Hans Zimmer do not say yes to everything that they get offered.
    Carpenter would totally say yes to anything that was offered to him if the money was right. That's all he cares about. Morricone may not, but if you think Hans Zimmer is frothing at the mouth to score films like The Boss Baby, you're dead fucking wrong.

    Also, Trent has specifically stated that they've been offered films and they've passed on them because they didn't feel like they were a good fit for them. Just because a film may not be your cup of tea or have loads of music attached to it doesn't mean that they're phoning it in.

    Oh yeah, and one more thing: the amount of music that's in a film is not up to the composer(s). It's up to the filmmakers. If a director wants a minimalist score, then that's what they'll ask for. It's not as if a director asks for a bombastic score and Trent & Atticus say "nah, we're just going to give you this because that's all we feel like doing". They're working in service to whatever the filmmakers' vision is.
