Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross are scoring THE SOCIAL NETWORK?!?

Hey folks, Harry here with a little factoid of interest regarding David Fincher's THE SOCIAL NETWORK. I've no notion of what this means, but Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross are scoring that "Facebook" flick. And I know you have all been anxious to see this movie due solely to David Fincher's involvement. But that was a big act of faith. Now, it looks like the film is starring PETER PARKER... Now I find myself with the abstract concept that David Fincher is telling the story of FACEBOOK, that's so fucking good. And Dark! That Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross took time off of taking time off to score it. Here's what Trent Reznor said on the NIN site...

I was planning on taking some time off after the continual waves of touring that ended last fall and spend this year experimenting around with what would become How To Destroy Angels and some new NIN. Well, that plan didn't work out so well. David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook. I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on. Months later, I'm happy to tell you we're nearing the completion of this and I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable. As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we're looking forward to the next phase - distilling the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that. Speaking of the film... it's really fucking good. And dark!

    Trent is a brilliant composer.

    by Stifler's Mom

    The transition to film work, especially to a Fincher film, seems like a no-brainer. Cant wait to hear it.

  • July 2, 2010, 5:46 p.m. CST

    Oh, haha

    by Jaka

    I just sent this in, too. lol Apologies. Color me way fuckin' excited for this news and now more interested in the movie itself. If Reznor says it's good and really dark, chances are much better that I'm going to like it. Getting a couple albums worth of Ghosts out of it can't really hurt, either.

  • July 2, 2010, 5:48 p.m. CST

    I wonder if the soundtrack will have a halo number

    by JackSlater4

    probably not unless it's branded as NIN, not Trent Reznor and friends

  • July 2, 2010, 5:49 p.m. CST

    Listen to NIN Ghosts on YouTube

    by Jaka

    I would imagine that's a fairly decent start to guessing what the soundtrack will sound like. All of those tracks are Trent and Atticus produced instrumentals. Also, a remix of Closer was used during the opening credits of Se7en. Trent's music definitely works with Fincher's darker stuff.

    by Teddy Artery

    have made had I the musical talent. But seriously, one could practically imagine that Reznor and Fincher were already one person, what with their Matt Mahurin-inspired visuals.

    ahem.... johny random....

    by SpikeBeoulve

    ever heard of Trent's producing of Saul Williams????? Give the album, The Inevitable Rise & Liberation of Niggy Tardust, a listen. Trent produced the entire album. If you're not a fan of NIN's latest work, hopefully you will at least appreciate what he and Saul did on that album. Also, I respectfully disagree with you. NIN's last few albums have been classics, just on a different level and time than anything pre-2000. The Great Destroyer is a song that comes to mind right away :)

  • July 2, 2010, 7:23 p.m. CST


    by SpikeBeoulve

    damn you trent for retiring!!!!!! I never got to see NIN live.

  • July 2, 2010, 7:33 p.m. CST

    I approve

    dug all the films that have had Reznor on their soundtracks

  • July 2, 2010, 7:34 p.m. CST


    by SpikeBeoulve

    they both have talent. Saul is definitely better at lyrics, I'll give you that. Overall, for beats, NIN has a much broader range than Saul has done, but granted, saul has only had three full albums as of yet.

  • July 2, 2010, 7:51 p.m. CST

    johnnyrandom, you're so wrong

    by Jaka

    FACT! The last several NIN albums were stellar and Trent's production ear is second to almost none. Don't know where you got the idea that he fell off so hard. And giving your music away? Yeah, that's totally part of the machine. lol

  • July 2, 2010, 8:08 p.m. CST


    by Dranem

    Year Zero, Ghosts, and The Slip were some of the best NIN albums ever. Not the best, but damn better than most music put out the last 5 years.

    by MJs_Cold_Dead_Pale_Corpse

    Reznor Is Lazy Now!!!

    by Media Messiah

    All of Trent Reznor's songs sound the same, now, like "Groundhog Day"...repeating over and over again; the same feel sorry for me, or I am angry and upset songs, with the same fast of slow beats. It has gotten boring, really! He does the same songs backwards, forwards, sideways, up and down...and all around. He has become a lazy song writer and producer, who has found a formula that sells records for him, and it has become a dishonest gimmick.

  • July 2, 2010, 8:18 p.m. CST

    Recent NIN

    by doczlove

    Is some of the best of Trent's career, Year Zero was amazing. How is he now 'part of the machine' and a 'pop star' now, wasn't Perfect Drug like one of his biggest commercial successes? How many pop stars have released a critically acclaimed instrumental double album lately? And given their latest album away for free?!!! Totally agree with SpikeBeoulve, The Great Destroyer is intimidating. Did anyone else notice that the last song on The Slip 'The Four of Us Are Dying' is named after a series one Twilight Zone episode, as is 'Where is Everybody?' from The Fragile. Just an observation.

  • July 2, 2010, 8:21 p.m. CST

    Media Messiah--> It's called a genre

    by MJs_Cold_Dead_Pale_Corpse

    Definition: a kind of literary or artistic work. Thats what he does, industrial goth rock. It's no more played out than country, rap, rock, etc...

    johnnyrandom, You're a complete douche...

    by TenderBranson

    Gee, let me get on the message board, and see how much indie/hardcore/ebm/coldwave/wax trax/hipster name dropping i can do! Lustmord, although interesting, is fucking unlistenable. J.G. Thirlwell, hasn't been relevent, since '92. Alex Empire hasn't been relavant since '97. Keep going buddy..."Why don't they get Einsturzende Neubauten to score the film?" "What about Boris and Sunn O)))???"...The fact is Trent's Plastic Yoko Ono Band project is garbage, but Ghosts and everything else he's touched in his career is fantastic. And it was always either going to be Cronenberg, or Fincher, who gave him the nod...

    Moving on to "more interesting things"

    by Jaka

    Well that's a pretty subjective statement right there. I listen to more music than most of my friends think is healthy. I listen to new electronic music on a near daily basis. Very little that I've EVER heard moves me the way Trent's music moves me. It's cool if you moved on, but professing that he's no longer good because you say so isn't really going to fly. It's widely accepted that Year Zero, Ghosts and The Slip are all classic NIN albums. And I'll ask again how giving away your albums, especially when you KNOW you could sell them, is being part of the machine? It's actually anti-machine. Lastly (really, I promise), this nonsense about selling records, having hits and making money causing you to no longer be relevant or interesting is complete bullshit. Musicians need to make money to live just like the rest of us. Some of the best albums ever made have come AFTER artists have had become established enough to stop eating gas station food and sleeping on their friends floors. And there is no underground anything anymore. The internet killed that permanently about five years ago.

    by SpikeBeoulve

    may do the work justice as well, but at the end of the day it's up to whoever fincher wants to score it. I'm mostly curious as to how dark this movie is going to be. Trent usually does foreboding, and a movie about the upstart of the social network and facebook... am I the only one missing the foreboding nature in this?

    citing THE PERFECT DRUG as a great song

    by frank cotton

    pisses away all credibility - it sucks. and sequenced noise is not music; 90% of INDUSTRIAL 'music' is unlistenable. most NIN rises above this, and it sounds great LOUD. but it is too bad that BROKEN was only an EP

  • July 3, 2010, 12:49 a.m. CST

    I can actually see this working

    by GroolDemon

    Considering this film is looking to be a sort of corporation kills the little guy type of thing. NIN has definitely been doing the seething, slow burn, fuck the man kind of thing especially in their last few albums. Throw in some computers, late night programming and site tracking shots, and some violent e mails and that could make for some pretty compelling shit if done right.

  • July 3, 2010, 2:04 a.m. CST

    Just can't get excited for this...

    So this is a situation for me not to mention jessie eisenberg is in this he's definitely become one of my new favorite actors over the last year with his roles in adventureland,the education of charlie banks,hunting party,and zombieland.i didnt think much of this when i first heard about this movie but once i heard fincher was directing and saw the recent trailer it's captured my intrest.i imagine it will be like alot of the strories we've heard before freinds go into a partnership together creating somethinbg for fun and then it blows up and money,ego,greed,and backstabbing come into play.

    Reznor has actually matured since The Fragile

    by smchroni

    Have you naysayers even listened to the last 4 albums he has put out? With Teeth: primarily about struggles with alcoholism Year Zero: Concept album about the end of the world and oppressive government takeover Ghosts I-IV: instrumental album The Slip: I will say this is his least mature of the four, but it also was his fastest produced Reznor never claims to be a great fact he often makes note of his weakness in that area. He is much better at production value and layering his songs. One of the reasons he's be brought on as a consultant for multiple soundtracks and has been asked to produce a variety of artists from Zach de la Rocha to Dr. Dre. This is the first album he is actually writing the entire soundtrack for.

    @MJs_Cold_Dead_Pale_Corpse: It's Beyond Genre

    by Media Messiah

    The Beatles were of a specific genre, but they changed and evolved as a band, and as writers, arrangers, and composers, and the same is true of The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Pink Floyd, Prince, David Bowie, and Depeche Mode--however, Trent Reznor is stuck in a loop, musically??? Look at How To Destroy Angels, for instance; it's Trent's new band featuring his wife, and the group just sounds like Nine Inch Nails from the early to mid 90s? The same production, the same style of mixes, the same sampled drum sounds, the same arrangements, the same use of instruments, and the very same musical attack--there is no evolution, just a female voice on the lead, and backgrounds, and one that is not the best of vocalist, by a long shot?<BR><BR>The same is true of all of Trent's music, specifically, his work with Nine Inch Nails, and or guest musicians--it is just dated?<BR><BR> Reznor constantly surrounds himself with over-trained musicians who sound like they are straight from the Berkeley School of Music, and Juilliard, whom he uses as human automatons to play over pre-programmed drum...and synth sequences. As per Berkeley and Juilliard, they are the very same musical schools that would never have let in people like a young unknown Paul McCartney, who does not read music, but is one of our greatest, if not the greatest, musician and song writer...of all time!!! My point is, these schools are not really the heart and soul of modern music, or of rock and roll.<BR><BR>In terms of NIN though, everything is tight in their orchestrations, and the quality of their recordings are great, but it has become hollow of true emotion--and cold? Trent's songs are just anger, on top of more anger, on top of yet more anger? Depression, on top of depression, on top of more depression??? Come on, really? What does Reznor have to be depressed or angry about anymore? He has a hot new wife, and is a multi-millionaire, so his act is running thin, with the "Feel sorry for me--I'm angry and pissed, and morose...and with reason!!!" business. Simply put, it has become an act, and quite frankly, it attracts weirdos and stalkers to Trent; there are a lot of disturbed people that follow him on and on his official You Tube channel who relate to that doom and gloom stuff and it isn't healthy. Hell, I have been sad and angry too, and can relate to some of the songs, more than most, but I don't wallow in it--I love a good party song...every once in a while, or something about romance and love, and finding happiness. We, as human beings, have many dimensions, when we are healthy of mind, not just one dimension emotionally, and a good song writer, and a truthful one, reflects that, or tries to.<BR><BR>Why can't we hear Trent put out a song where he says "I'm happy to be in love, and married", "I'm joyful", "Life is looking up", and "I have a reason to live"...etc.? Even the music needs change: Why not give us a happy melody? Let's hear something fun for once!!! Does everything have to be jaded...doom and gloom atmospherics with him--everytime, all the time??? It is getting boring, and it just rings false to me, and as I said, it has become an act--and that makes Trent a phony!!!

    by fettitular

    I have to say, after reading Johnnyrandom's posts initially, he came across as a pretentious twat... lol However, upon listening to a couple of his recomendations, i believe he knows what the fuck he's talking about... I just youtubed a couple of Thirlwell's (Foetus) songs: "Time Marches On" and "I Hate You All". HOLY FUCKING SHIT, where has this stuff been my whole life?!? (28 years) That shits fuckin wicked! I love that kinda stuff... I hate pretty much everything on the radio (derivative, uninspired, simplistic CRAP) I prefer stuff like old school Richard James aka Aphex Twin, some older Hartnoll Bros. (Orbital), old stuff from Liam Howlett (The Prodigy), Philip Glass, even SMK (who i recently discovered... if you like Beethoven mixed with videogame music, on ACID ;-), Godspeed You Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, Boards of Canada, Teargas and Plateglass, etc... and it sounds like Jim Thirlwell aka FOETUS, is gonna fit right in! <P> Now... to go listen to that crazy, demented, epic Big Band track "I Hate You All"... Thanks again for that Johnnyrandom :) Can't get that outta my head! lol

Just when you think you've heard it all or your becoming really jaded towards music in general, something like this comes along... nice :-)

    as per Telemarketer's request i'm listening to Black Light Distr

    by fettitular

    Never heard this before... reminding me of Godspeed You Black Emperor... i love this kind of shit! Almost reminds me of the video game soundtrack to Silent Hill. AWESOME soundtrack if anyone hasn't heard it ;) MORE DARK AMBIENT SHIT!

  • July 3, 2010, 5:40 a.m. CST

    Hey Telemarketer...

    by fettitular

    Seriously though, what happened to you man? Did they ban you, or did you just leave? And that was back in my "lurking" days so i wasn't posting then... but i definitely got a kick outta your shit you were postin' ;-) Class stuff man.

    Listening to Coil Presents: Black Light District - A Thousand Lights In A Darkened Room ('96)... makes me wanna start writing a script lol Seriously, good free-writing exercise type of music. Someone needs to make a movie and use this kind of shit for the score. Throw in some Godspeed, some Explosions in the Sky, Teargas and Plateglass, Aphex Twin/Philip Glass' masterpiece: "Icct Hedral"... that would be my fuckin' FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME ;-)

  • July 3, 2010, 5:55 a.m. CST

    Cool man... glad to have you back :-)

    by fettitular

    Feel free to post anytime here... it's not too often that i remember specific posters on this site. I've been mostly "lurking", recently posting, on this site for about 10 years now, and there are only a few real memorable characters around here, and that includes you man. "BrassMonkey", i believe, was another one. And i loved the original "FETT". "Fettastic" or something? (My screen-name is actually a "tribute" to that poster lol) Perhaps BrassMonkey and Fettastic were one and the same? Or they were 2 different people having a hilarious spat that spanned over months, and numerous talkbacks, that ended up with both of them getting banned. I can't remember... something about stories of his girlfriend's panties or some such nonsense... lol aaahhhh, the good ol' days ;-)

  • July 3, 2010, 5:58 a.m. CST

    I care because you do...

    by fettitular

    Oh im already on it man! ;-) I've had that CD since i was in high school... as i also bought pretty much all of his old stuff when i was younger. I think i stopped when "Drukqs" came out. Haven't heard much since... Melodies from Mars was kinda cool too. Has he done anything lately?

  • July 3, 2010, 6:01 a.m. CST

    and regarding Icct Hedral...

    by fettitular

    I think i prefer the Philip Glass "cover" because of the classic, orchestral sound to it, instead of the electronic sound that Richard James produced... I love 'em both though. And i love me some "Come to Daddy"! I wanna hear that fuckin song blasting in a theatre over some crazy ass trailer or something lol...

  • July 3, 2010, 6:05 a.m. CST

    Another random artist i love...

    Mike Fucking Patton. Dude is THE SHIT. Loved what he did with Crank 2 recently...

  • July 3, 2010, 6:10 a.m. CST

    Damn! The Telemarketer does it again!

    by fettitular

    Listening to "Like Cockatoos" by the cure... good shit! Keep 'em comin' tele! Finding some new fave songs tonight ;)

  • July 3, 2010, 6:30 a.m. CST

    Mike Patton...

    by fettitular

    Seriously though, "A Dream of Roses" from the soundtrack to "A Perfect Place"... BRILLIANT.

    period! and I am excited about this thing. His production is only to be admired on top hi-fi equipment though.

    Reznor is a legend.

    by rbatty024

    He's also smart enough to make it through the digital age without losing his soul. I've always thought he would make a superb soundtrack. The only surprise is that he hasn't done one for Fincher before.

    It lose translation watching it on youtube, but Come to Daddy was used very effectively in this scene in the theater.

    The Best Thing

    by Wrath4771

    When Trent Reznor gives the seal of approval it's going to be good. I will now bet there.

    Foetus is good stuff

    by TheUmpireStrokesBach

    I'll always remember him pelvic thrusting in my face when he opened for Pigface way back in the day. It was hilarious!<p> This track from a melvins album is pretty sweet...

  • July 3, 2010, 1:20 p.m. CST

    I just hope

    by SunTzu77

    I hope Reznor didn't let his wife Yoko touch the record.

    Your fucking writing is impossible to understand. Writing is different than simply transcribing every abstract though that floats into your head. Please make an effort to work on this.

    by SpikeBeoulve

    His work is way to eclectic for this type of a movie. I love his stuff though, everything from mr. bungle, faith no more, fantomas, tomahawk, peeping tom, and his solo work. Absolutely amazing. Just wrong for what I think fincher may be doing with this movie.

    How to Destroy Angels is fucking brilliant

    by DOGSOUP

    See the video for The Space in Between. Also, if you haven't yet, see the NIN video for Only directed by David Fincher. It shows me David Fincher can make normal, uninteresting things fucking fascinating.

    Let me clarify something

    by Jaka

    My entire argument was because somebody else attempted to tell us all what/who sucks. If you don't like it, then say that YOU don't like it. But don't make grand statements professing how something is just shit in general. Because somebody else in the talkback is going to refute your point. That's basically what talkbacks are all about - arguing each others opinions. But statements of fact regarding something as objective as the entire body of work of an artist will never fly.

    Reznor has no more talent....its GONE!

    by scrapplejoe

    Anytime someone starts a song with a drumbeat for EVERY SONG, its a no-go. Basically, he is creating his music behind a drumbeat now, using apps like Reason, etc. Heck, I can do this in a few minutes as well. Fire up reason, create Drumbeat, and then sing and create same sounding song over the top. Cmon trent, get back to writing real songs with guitars.

    QUAKE. THAT my friends is a scary NIN soundtrack.

    The best Foetus album


    Or SCRAPING FOETUS OFF THE WHEEL as I'll always call him is 2001's "Flow". Also, track down the remix of "Religion" by FRONT242 he did.

    A perfect team! Ghosts and Book of Eli!

    by Pixelsmack

    My love of Trent is obvious, but I recently discovered Ross with his amazingly calming yet expansive sounding score for "The Book of Eli". Can't wait!

    Is Foetus and Steroid Maximus and Manorexia and Wiseblood (with Roli Mossimon) and Stinkfist (with Lydia Lunch) and a buncha other stuff. Foetus kicks the most ass. Steroid Maximus is the most brilliantly soundtracky. The theme to Venture brothers is a reworked version of a song called "Fighteous" offa the first Steroid Maximus disc (which I'm pretty sure is outta print, but maybe not?). <br><br>Oh yeah, and he's amazing. MUCH better than Reznor, although Reznor has his moments.
