Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross continue their prolific scoring career, this time for Netflix's psychological action thriller Bird Box. The latest in a series of films that focus on sensory deprivation, five years after an ominous unseen presence drives most of society to suicide, a survivor and her two children make a desperate big to reach safety.
This 180g vinyl 4LP edition presents extended compositions and explorations created during the Bird Box scoring sessions. Over two hours of music that began recording in Los Angeles and was completed in various hotel rooms before and after Nine Inch Nails' performances during their 2018 Cold, Black & Infinite US tour. This intense pace coupled with the pressures of nightly performances began to bleed through into the work, what started as a score for a film began to mutate and expand into something else far beyond what you saw and heard on the screen.
Reznor and Ross explain, "We created a significant amount of music and conceptual sound for Bird Box, a lot of which never made it to your ears in the final version of the film. We've decided to present you with this version of the soundtrack record that represents what Bird Box is to us. We hope you enjoy."
