Original score on 3LP to The Vietnam War: A Film By Ken Burns & Lynn Novick

Score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

Trent Reznor and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross have teamed up to build dark, moody soundscapes that bring to life iconic documentarian Ken Burns' latest epic, "The Vietnam War." Reznor and Ross drew from field recordings of mortars, helicopters, and people talking as "rhythmic starting points" for the score, which also features reworked music from from Nine Inch Nails songs and their scores for "The Social Network" and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

Burns personally sought out the duo for the 10-part, 18-hour epic series initially shown on PBS. "I don't think he finished the sentence before I said, ‘Yeah, we're in,'" Reznor recently told the New York Times. "That's a no-brainer."

Reznor also told the Times that the duo were provided with a blueprint of moods to evoke: rage, courage, sadness, fear, chaos, loss, love, sacrifice, aggression, loneliness, and anxiety-exactly the emotions the uber intense Reznor's art normally traffics in.

"We are incredibly honored to be a part of this project," Reznor and Ross said in a joint statement. "With 'The Vietnam War,' Ken [Burns], [co-director] Lynn [Novick], and [senior producer] Sarah [Botstein] have created something of vital importance. To bear witness to their process was immensely inspiring. The sheer scale of the project combined with the magnitude of the subject matter was initially daunting for us, but the commitment, care, and reverence they displayed made the experience deeply satisfying on many levels."
