Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross

With their stark single-note piano theme, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross found a sound that mirrors the roiling emotions lying just beyond the cerebral tensions of The Social Network. The percolating techno track “In Motion” conveys the programming obsessions and vertiginous success of a tech company, while the throbbing and abrasive “A Familiar Taste” channels underlying urges of greed, corruption and selfishness. The duo’s unnerving balance of delicateness and animosity is best experienced on the frighteningly sleek interpretation of Wagner’s “In the Hall of the Mountain King”.
Do not buy
Great score, immaculate composition, just don't buy if from here. Costs $5 [around £3-something] from Trent's nullco site. That way, the artists get to see 100% of the profit and you pay less.
Great soundtrack to a great movie
Trent is a master at creating atmosphere, and doesn't disappoint with this. Track 1 is off the hook.
It's Trent reznor....
...the man can do no wrong.
