Interview with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

Zane Lowe talks to Trent Reznor & Atti­cus Ross about work­ing on music togeth­er, Atti­cus join­ing Nine Inch Nails and the band’s new EP called ‘Not the Actu­al Events’ Reznor revealed that he and Atti­cus are work­ing on ‘two major works for Nine Inch Nails’ for 2017.
Trent and Atti­cus also stress the impor­tance of phys­i­cal releas­es and the by-prod­uct of dig­i­tal content.

Vinyl has returned to being a pri­or­i­ty for us — not just for the warmth of the sound, but the inter­ac­tion it demands from the lis­ten­er. The can­vas of art­work, the weight of the record, the smell of the vinyl, the drop­ping of the nee­dle, the dif­fi­cul­ty of skip­ping tracks, the chang­ing of sides, the secrets hid­den with­in, and hav­ing a phys­i­cal object that exists in the real world with you… all part of the expe­ri­ence and magic.

Dig­i­tal for­mats and stream­ing are great and cer­tain­ly con­ve­nient, but the ide­al way I’d hope a lis­ten­er expe­ri­ence my music is to grab a great set of head­phones, sit with the vinyl, drop the nee­dle, hold the jack­et in your hands look­ing at the art­work (with your fuck­ing phone turned off) and go on a jour­ney with me.

“In these times of near­ly unlim­it­ed access to all the music in the world, we’ve come to appre­ci­ate the val­ue and beau­ty of the phys­i­cal object.”

    I almost choked on my tea when Trent said he did­n’t like Talk­ing Heads Remain in Light!!! But he walked it out, my san­i­ty has returned. Great interview.
