Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ third collaboration with David Fincher is nearing release with both the Gone Girl film and its soundtrack. While the film doesn’t come out for another week or so, the good folks at NPR are streaming the entirety of the soundtrack over at their site. We had given you a song before, but NPR makes us look like cheapskates now that they have the whole album.

And we’re not even going to make a big deal about how it would be a lot cooler if it was embeddable so we don’t have to direct our precious, precious traffic to a site that has a budget made from taxes and tote bag sales. Just kidding. They’re ok people (THEY’RE NOT).

So keep doing your filing, spreadsheet assembly, or tonsillectomy, but now do it with a dark urgency that only this pair can provide.

The good news: We’ve got a YouTube clip of a sample of the Trent Reznor-composed soundtrack for David Fincher’s mystery Gone Girl. The bad news: You could probably guess what it sounds like. I guess that’s not bad news per se, because the Reznor style works pretty well with Fincher’s noir components, but it’s not revolutionary or anything.

Take a listen and hear for yourself. It’s always nice ambient music, and it could take on a new life in the context of the film (it is a soundtrack after all), so let’s not get bent out of shape.

We’ll just go to our therapist and talk our way through this. Again.

Soundtrack Studies: ‘Fight Club’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/fight-club/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/fight-club/#comments Tue, 12 Aug 2014 16:11:24 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=264065 I want you to listen as hard as you can.

The post Soundtrack Studies: ‘Fight Club’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Last week I spoke of my two reservations in choosing soundtracks for Soundtrack Studies: I didn’t want to do instrumentals (because they’re just harder to write about and far better experienced than read) and I didn’t want to pick soundtracks that were done by just one artist, because the curation of different artists is one of the most compelling aspects of soundtracks.

Nonetheless, I tossed those criteria out the window and did ‘The Social Network, which featured no words, and was done entirely by the team of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

Oh well.

I also wrote about how Trent Reznor and David Fincher seemed to be a natural fit for each other, which is presumably why Fincher had recruited Reznor to write his now defunct Fight Club musical. But before there were musicals, spinoffs, or variety hours, there was Fight Club the film which had its own soundtrack, which sounded a LOT like Trent Reznor, even though it was done in its entirety by the the Dust Brothers. And it’s all instrumental as well, save for the last scene, which I will talk about later and is why I’m writing about this soundtrack in the first place.

For those unfamiliar, Fight Club, more than it is about fighting, is about the insidiousness of white male rage. The protagonist (an unnamed narrator played by Edward Norton), gets convinced by a mischievous stranger to thwart the conventions he’s mired himself in, and live life on a more savage, animalistic level. As the film progresses, we see Brad Pitt’s Tyler Durden evolve from “charming imp” to “nihilistic criminal,” which is likely the character’s M.O. all along.

And as we’re faced with and rejecting the Narrator’s very existence, we’re given a droning score that serves as a heart monitor for Edward Norton’s character. For the entire film, the score intentionally avoids crescendo, climax, or excitement, instead serving to ratchet up the tension of a man hitting rock bottom of his own free will (but not really of his own free will.) The exception to this being the opening credits, which, in hindsight, teaches you the only exciting thing in the Narrator’s life is how messed-up his mind is.

Through that lens, the Dust Brothers were a very inspired choice. But they were also a very subversive one. Having been auteurs of beat-driven music fro over ten years at that point, they had largely cut their teeth as producers prior to the film, having overseen the excellent Beck album Odelay, the Korn (naturally) song “Kick the P.A.” and Hanson’s “MMMBop.”

Yes. The Dust Brothers did Hanson’s “MMMBop.” They’re nothing if not diverse.

Unfortunately, the soundtrack listings on Spotify seem to be more what people THINK should have been on the Fight Club soundtrack more than what’s actually on the Fight Club soundtrack. What people think should be on it is fascinating, but not really germane to this discussion. However, if you’d like to get a glimpse of someone making their own, you can see it here. If you want the actual soundtrack, made by the people we’re talking about here, it’s in this lengthy, lengthy YouTube video:

It really does sound a lot (alotalotalot) like The Social Network soundtrack. So much so that many Internet denizens refer to Nine Inch Nails as the composer. Close, but wrong.

The score, like that of The Social Network, sets an eerily ambient tone that pairs as well with senseless vandalism and savagery as it does with a dinner party or filling out a spreadsheet. Instrumental music often affords itself that versatility in a manner that singers can’t. And the film sticks to that formula right until the very end, when the Narrator puts a bullet through his head, demonstrating his free will apart from Tyler Durden, killing him, then watching the world burn and getting the girl.

It’s a lot to take in on a narrative level, but the use of The Pixies’ “Where Is My Mind” serves as one of the more iconic songs in film, serving as both heavy-handed wordplay (where IS Edward Norton’s mind), but mostly just cutting through the tension carried in the film with  a cathartic release. You know. Like a bullet to the head.

It’s what the film’s soundtrack is most known for, and it rewards the viewer for two hours and fifteen minutes of watching this man trudge through life, then take misguided pains to make it a little more interesting. There’s probably a moral there, but David Fincher’s not the type of person to tell you what it is.

In an effort to keep this column as pop-culturally relevant (more for my sake than the sake of my readers), Soundtrack Studies was created with the intent to avoid “scores” and focus on “soundtracks.” I did this under the somewhat misguided understanding that a score was essentially composed instrumental music for a film, and soundtracks consisted of non-instrumental, sometimes non-original, music for a film.

This delineation works for the purposes of casual discussion, which is basically what I intend this feature to be, but for the sake of at least acknowledging the technical aspects of a soundtrack (or a score), I’d like to clear things up. For instance, all the pop songs for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 were written FOR the film, so they’re part of the score. And the soundtrack. The soundtrack is ALL MUSIC in the film, and the score is ALL ORIGINAL MUSIC in the film. Semantic, but I figured after like a dozen or so of these installments, I could actually get around to defining what I’m writing about.

So what I really wanted to avoid were orchestral or instrumental soundtracks, original or not. I also wanted to avoid, at least initially, soundtracks (or scores or whatever) composed by just one artist. Like Badly Drawn Boy’s excellent soundtrack for About a Boy. I don’t really take issue with either approach, but the former is just a little obscure and hard to put in a relevant cultural context, and the latter ignores the curative aspects of soundtrack compilation that I find to be most interesting aspect of them.

The Social Network’s soundtrack AND score, composed by Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and his collaborator Atticus Ross (a composer and producer in his own right), is entirely instrumental, and features no other composers or artists (save for a sample or two). But I felt it was too important and good to ignore based on a arbitrary premise that I set for myself for no particular reason.

It accompanied a film featuring a dream team of creativity; a film based on a successful book written by Ben Mezrich, adapted for the screen by Aaron Sorkin, and directed by David Fincher.

Academy Award-winning composer Trent Reznor

It was the film about how Facebook was started, which was so culturally relevant that even fans of the auteurs thought was an extremely ephemeral subject matter, no matter how profound its reach at the time of its release.

With a subject as mass-marketed, ubiquitous, and accessible as Facebook, the creative powers worked very hard to ensure that the film maintained a grit that wouldn’t reduce the film to the cinematic equivalent of kitten pictures and “Which How I Met Your Mother Character are YOU?” quizzes. It succeeded to the surprise of even Reznor himself.

To that end, the enlistment of David Fincher went a long way. And while Reznor and Ross didn’t have breadth of creative control that the director had, their involvement didn’t just result in a soundtrack that pleasantly defied expectation to the end of winning an Academy Award for their work, but also just gave the entire effort some credibility.

Here’s the soundtrack for the film:

The titles will likely mean nothing, as this is original, instrumental music, so judgment here lies even more so than usual in the content of the music itself.

While you’re listening to the soundtrack, let’s discuss a bit the relationship, real and conceptual, between David Fincher and Trent Reznor. They seem to share a creative DNA, operating in the realm of the mass markets, but with a subversive darkness that doesn’t seem to alienate, but rather endear. Sure, they’re not Mumford & Sons (thank God) or Steven Spielberg, but they’re both considered artists and craftsmen as much as they are a musician and a director.

Trent Reznor contributed to and took a supervisory role on the soundtrack to Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers, which seemed to parallel the themes of the later Fight Club by Fincher. (In fact, there was a time when the director had been lobbying for Reznor to do a musical of Fight Club. Thankfully, that didn’t happen.) Fincher had also used a remix of Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” in Se7en, a film that, in its entirety felt like a film based on a Nine Inch Nails song and resembled what we knew to be Nine Inch Nails music videos.

The two had a working relationship and friendship before Fincher approached Reznor to produce the soundtrack. Reznor declined, then accepted, as these stories so often go. The end of opening scene, which contains the ominous first track “Hand Covers Bruise,” was originally presented for working purposes with credits and an upbeat rock song.

Trent Reznor spoke with Fincher about dialing down the merriment, through a couple songs in from his instrumental album Ghosts, and the tone was set. With those marching orders, Trent and Atticus put together the rest of the album with a new confidence, and proceeded without much interruption or interference from anyone.

I don’t have much to say on the soundtrack songs itself, because, as was my initial concern, I feel that composed instrumental work is far better felt than discussed, at least in this medium. So here are a few clips that convey the feeling.

And then there’s the regatta scene, which plays closer to an action scene or music video (a hallmark of Fincher, even in his films) than any other part of the film.

From these, hopefully my sense that this soundtrack demonstrates a side of Trent Reznor apart from Nine Inch Nails which is not softer, but perhaps more insidious. Regardless of whether that’s actually true, it’s hard to argue in the wake of the acclaim for the film and its soundtrack that it wasn’t a success. And Fincher’s use of Reznor’s skills in the subsequent Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and upcoming Gone Girl further that assertion.

See ya next week, when we’ll get back to some soundtracks with words and songs and stuff.

Tent Reznor has mellowed out a lot later in his career, but it’s nice to see him channel some anger against the man. The man in this instance is everyone’s favorite whipping boy, the Grammys ceremony itself. Even though they’ve made an effort to put slightly less accessible acts like Arcade Fire, NIN, and Queens of the Stone Age in the last spot, the last spot has always felt a little like tokenism.

And it more than “felt like” tokenism last night when the ceremony chose to cut into Queens of the Stone Age’s “My God Is The Sun” to throw up some title cards for the producers, the production company, then give big ups to everyone’s favorite indie airline, Delta, for flying Taylor Swift around.

Reznor offered up, via Twitter, “Music’s biggest night… to be disrespected. A heartfelt FUCK YOU guys.”

It’s nice to see Trent still has that fire. And yes, the Grammys suck. Let’s just acknowledge it and move on, rather than turning it into a whole thing.

By the band, I don’t mean Nine Inch Nails. I meant the Trent Reznor scoring David Fincher movies partnership will continue with Gone Girl, which means the opening credits will be really cool. Reznor will be joined by co-composer Atticus Ross to put a whole lot of whirrs and ghirrs under the images of Ben Affleck not knowing where the hell his wife is. And maybe, for a change of pace, hand claps and duck quacks? Just please think on it. (The Playlist)

Trent Reznor’s ‘Year Zero’ To Get Mini-Series Treatment From ‘Fight Club’ Scribe http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trent-reznors-year-zero-to-get-mini-series-treatment-from-fight-club-scribe/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/trent-reznors-year-zero-to-get-mini-series-treatment-from-fight-club-scribe/#comments Fri, 24 Jun 2011 20:54:34 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=217841 If he thinks our future is going to look anything like his music videos, we need to act NOW.

Trent Reznor used to be about the music, but now he’s gone all Hollywood. The Academy Award-winning composer and Nine Inch Nails braintrust has found a writer to adapt his 2007 concept album Year Zero into a miniseries on both BBC and HBO. That writer is Jim Uhls, another familiar face in the David Fincher universe, having penned the Fight Club script, which closely parallels some of the sentiments conveyed in Year Zero.

Year Zero takes place in a dystopian 2022, in which the world is just a rotten, rotten place due to the policies enacted by contemporary government (2007 or so). Rather than focus myopically on the government, the mini-series will exist in a sci-fi context, though exactly what that construct will be is not clear. Listening to the album could either provide some insight or serve as a red herring, as it’s not known how faithful the adaptation will be to Reznor’s industrial work.

Further details aren’t available, but Reznor and Uhls’ involvement are both very good things. If there’s any way to get Fincher on this in any capacity, it wouldn’t be hyperbolic to declare this project the greatest thing in the history of civilization. Yes, better than the Magna Carta. (THR)

You know what sounded cool? Trent Reznor writing the music, and acting in, the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. You know what sucks? That’s not actually happening.

Reznor told fans on the Nine Inch Nails website that when the story broke, he was still deciding whether or not to take the job. He decided not to do it and “hurt” all our feelings instead. The Social Network composer will be scoring The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but that’s not gonna have nearly as many Lincoln vampire fight sequences. I assume.

Maybe winning an Oscar went to his head? Specifically, the part of the brain that doesn’t like fun and good times? Of course, he might use the time saved to work on a new NIN album. If that’s case, then the gods of rock need him, and I understand. *Bows Head, Holds Up Cell Phone Camera* (Cinema Blend)

UPDATE: Todd Phillips told Collider that the Sheen rumor is completely untrue. Awww shucks!

Just another morning at the high-profile rumor mill. Which one do you want first? We got some reeeeal hot rumors for you.

1. Charlie Sheen is being courted for a cameo in The Hangover Part II!? Principal photography has wrapped, but that’s not stopping the production from circling America’s (most recent) favorite high profile celebrity meltdown. The film comes out in May, so it remains to be seen what will happen with the man who runs on Tiger Blood (AKA cocaine and porn stars) between now and then. It’ll be interesting to see if he films a cameo in two weeks and flees to Mexico with a hooker in his trunk a month later. (SlashFilm)

2. Trent Reznor could be making a return to acting after a LONG absence. The Nine Inch Nails frontman and now Oscar winning(!) composer, who first acted alongside Michael J Fox in Paul Schrader’s 1987 film Light Of Day, might return to face the cameras as a vampire who (SPOILER ALERT!) kills Abraham Lincoln‘s mother in Timur Bekmambetov‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which Reznor is also scoring. We’ll see about that, as Reznor would really be effective as a vampire. No makeup needed on that pale genius! Slap some fake fangs on that guy and he’s ready. (JoBlo)

On the stage of Broadway’s Spider-Man musical, actors are getting injured left and right. Everyone thought this was a sure sign that the multi-million dollar Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark was gonna be one of the greatest musical flops of all-time. So what happened? It became the highest-grossing show on Broadway. The theater audience has voted, and they want blood.

That’s why I think director David Fincher and NIN frontman Trent Reznor are onto something with their idea for turning Fight Club into a musical. After many years of joking about it to the press, then half-joking about it to the press, we understand that they’re now actively working on adapting the film for the stage. The timing is perfect. Yes, imagining Tyler Durden and crew prance-fighting like the Jets and the Sharks is ridiculous, but that’s obviously not what it would be like. If they allow the actors to really beat each other up on stage, every single night, they can easily beat Spider-Man. In Spider-Man, the injuries are accidents – if crazy injuries were real and guaranteed, you could sell tickets for $200 a pop. A few actors might die, but they’ll die doing what they love: getting punched in the teeth.

Broadway, watch your back. (/Film)

Also: Calvin, watch your back, too.

Nine Inch Nails frontman and Social Network co-composer Trent Reznor will add his unique stylings to David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo score. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise considering Reznor and Fincher are besties. Ever since we saw the title sequence for Se7en, which uses a remix of NiN’s song “Closer,” we knew those two were born to work together. The track “In Motion” from the The Social Network soundtrack helped make blogging feel cool, so I can’t wait to see how Reznor will make girls with tattoos seem cool. Seems like he has a bit more of an advantage with that subject material. (/Film)
