On Friday evening, Trent Reznor sat down with Jon Pareles (music critic for the NYT) for a lengthy, candid interview about his work on The Social Network soundtrack, Nine Inch Nails, How To Destroy Angels, and his creative process. The interview runs 1h15m, and is available for download in both video and audio versions.

Note: the video was captured live from the online stream, and has a few audio sync issues which quickly rectify themselves.

The video is in Quicktime .mov format, and the audio is .mp3.

Trent Reznor Updates Fans On His Many Projects

I assume it's on megaupload because it was captured by NIN fans. I've looked through the NYT website, and they don't seem to archive their TimesTalks live streams, or not that I could find.

I was hesitant to try to upload the video for online consumption, due to the banhammer.

There is a magnet link in the comments of that page, for those who prefer bittorrent.

I've stuck it on my site. I can't seem to embed it on the blog (anyone have code for that? everything I found on google didn't work).

You can watch it here (selflink obviously).

Arrgh. Seems out of sync to me as well. Anyone else who downloaded it, you having a sync problem?

You Should See The Other Guy: the person who captured and posted the video acknowledges the sync problems in that "captured by..." link above. He says he worked with the video to get it synched as well as he could, but the medium from which it was captured introduced the problems in the first place.

So... It was Broken, and couldn't be Fixed?

I'd say it was Fragile to begin with, but that would just lead to a Downward Spiral of bad jokes.

My friend had a copy of ADD that included a cd that was an audio version along the same lines of this video.

We're never going to come up with one for Pretty Hate Machine or With Teeth, are we?

I had something for With Teeth but it gave me The Slip.

Elvis Costello seems to either make a cameo in or invade the soundtrack of 75% of all movies. It makes everything suck as bad as that original Social Network cut. I predict that some Ted Turner-like figure will "colorize" classic movies in the future by digitally erasing all this crooning indie dorkpop and replacing it with harrowing electronic dirges as the Good Lord intended.
