Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - Disney+Pixar's Soul (Original Score)

Recommended Posts


Soul follows a middle school music teacher named Joe Gardner (Jamie Foxx) with a lifelong dream of performing jazz onstage in front of an audience. But he accidentally falls down a manhole cover and dies before getting his chance, and must navigate the afterlife back to his body on earth before it’s too late. The film is absolutely loaded with music, so it makes sense that Disney would need two whole albums to contain it all.


So jazz. In a movie called "Soul". With a soundtrack by Trent Reznor.

If you had told 90's me (when Pixar was just coming along) that Trent Reznor would be doing a movie soundtrack for one of their films, I would have laughed in your face...

Kinda puts "I wanna f* you like an animal" in a whole different perspective.

Reznor & Ross soundtracks have been top notch so will be checking it out.  Their soundtrack to the new Fincher flick Mank ought to be interesting too as they used only instruments from the 40s

He's just into the masochistic activity of licking Disney's boot.

I don't think he has worked for Apple for a few years now. 

He is an artist who has fallen into a bit of a formula no matter what he tries. You basically know exactly how a NIN track will go after about 30 seconds. So I think trying something outside his comfort zone like this and the old-timey score for Mank could have a good impact?

Yeah, he has a well defined sound.  I like his work a lot - PHM got me through high school and TDS is really diverse and creative but after that I think he runs into his limitations as a composer. It's always the same set of chords and changes and once the novelty of his - impressive - sound design skills wears off that becomes a bit boring.

(I know he's supposed to be "classically trained" but from the way his music sounds I'd say that's probably not much more than a bunch of piano lessons).

      Daniel Avery and Alessandro Cortini hinted at their collaborative potential when they released the limited edition 7” ‘Water’/‘Sun’ back in 2017 through Erol Alkan’s Phantasy imprint. The pair have been busy since then - Avery with promoting his wonderful second studio LP Song For Alpha, Cortini with a variety of projects including solo material and the group SONOIO. However, despite both having full schedules they have also found time to make good on the promise of that 2017 release, creating ten tracks together which are released here on the new LP Illusion Of Time.
      ‘Water’ and ‘Sun’ both appear on Illusion Of Time, and both remain just as impressive as the first time we heard them. While ‘Water’ comes off as a more blissed-out rendering of Blanck Mass’ monolithic electronics, ‘Sun’s grinding drones almost push it in Sunn O))) territory. Indeed, these two tracks act almost as yin and yang for Illusion Of Time as a whole, with the rest of the numbers here all falling broadly into one of these two camps. When taken as a whole it makes for a listening experience at once tranquil and turbulent, emotional and thoughtful - the recent film scoring work of Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) makes for a good point of comparison.
      Daniel Avery and Alessandro Cortini unite for an LP of cinematic, frequently gorgeous drones and ambiences.

      These are shipping now from the store. Vinyl looks nice. I've loved the music from the show so far so this was an instant buy.
