Reznor on the Oscar-winning score

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “We set up rules. We will use these instruments. We will exist in this space. We don’t record anything as MIDI into a computer that can be fixed and quantized. Generally, everything is a live performance and treated as a performance. It’s treated as something that’s pulled out of the ether. Sometimes it’s off. Sometimes it isn’t turned right. That was an example of the rules of this record. It feels synthetic, but it has to feel like people are involved. It’s not coming out of a laptop. It doesn’t sound like what’s on the radio. It feels like people, and it feels imperfect.” —Trent Reznor, on the process of composing the Oscar-winning score for The Social Network, from a fascinating Q&A in the L.A. Times. (3/1a)
