Nine Inch Nails – Not the Actual Events EP

The surprise release of Not the Actual Events accompanies an anticlimactic expansion of Trent Reznor’s one-man empire to include composer Atticus Ross, with whom he’s collaborated on numerous film scores and standard musical releases over the past decade. 2011’s Oscar-winning The Social Network score remains their collaborative calling card, but the Brit also deserves credit for shaping the sparse, streamlined sound of latter-day Nine Inch Nails. The hollow melodies, the minimal construction, the newfound, eerie calm emanating from the ghost in Reznor’s machine: these are but a few of the signature touches Ross has bestowed upon the project ever since he first sat behind the boards as a programmer and producer on 2005’s With Teeth.
