Trent Reznor composing score for 'The Social Network'
Nine Inch Nails front man, who has said that social media "is doing more harm than good" for the world, is scoring the harshly critical film about the origins of Facebook.
The powerful array of talent behind "The Social Network," the upcoming movie about the origins of Facebook, continues to grow larger: Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor has announced that he is composing the film's score.
"It's really f***ing good. And dark!" Reznor wrote in a post on the Nine Inch Nails Web site on Friday. "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 (director David Fincher) operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable."
Here's a little dose of irony: Last year, Reznor deleted his Twitter account,that he was forsaking social networks altogether because "at the end of the day it's now doing more harm than good in the bigger picture and the experiment seems to have yielded a result. Idiots rule."
He has, however, been a significant player in other forms of digital media, namely the struggle to. In a 2007 interview with CNET he said, "Should I be angry at the audience that wants to hear music so much, an audience that is so passionate about hearing it they go online to get it two weeks before the music debuts? No, I want them to be that way."
