Trent Reznor to Score “Before the Flood”

before the blood

Trent Reznor and his long­time col­lab­o­ra­tor Atti­cus Ross have teamed up with Mog­wai, and film com­pos­er Gus­ta­vo San­tao­lal­la to score the new doc­u­men­tary film called Before the Flood, which is about cli­mate change.

Reznor and Ross served as both the film’s music super­vi­sors as well as com­posers, work­ing with San­tao­lal­la and the mem­bers of Mog­wai on the score, which will be released as an album next month. Direct­ed by actor/director Fish­er Stevens, Before the Flood “chron­i­cles Leonar­do DiCapri­o’s cam­paign to raise glob­al aware­ness about the dan­gers of cli­mate change in his role as a UN Ambas­sador of Peace,” accord­ing to the film’s description.

In a press release, Stevens said:

The incred­i­ble music com­posed for Before the Flood was one of the most unique col­lab­o­ra­tions I can think of in scor­ing a film. Reznor, Ross, San­tao­lal­la, and Mog­wai become one voice in cap­tur­ing the emo­tion and feel­ing of Leonar­do DiCapri­o’s jour­ney to under­stand­ing where we stand in terms of cli­mate change, how far gone we are, what can we do about solv­ing this issue and why peo­ple are still resis­tant to under­stand­ing how impor­tant it is.
