Wannabe producers can now get their hands on the raw tracks from Trent Reznor
and Atticus Ross
' "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
Stems from five tracks have been posted on the Tunecore blog
to use as you wish, though commercial use such as selling your remixes is not permitted.
Reznor and Ross had been nominated for a Golden Globe for the score, losing out to "The Artist
It is not the first time Trent Reznor has opened up his productions for fans to work on. In 2005, he posted songs from the Nine Inch Nails
album "With Teeth
" as Garage Band files, allowing anyone with the free Mac software to reimagine his music.
Speaking at the time, Reznor explained his intentions:
"For quite some time I've been interested in the idea of allowing you the ability to tinker around with my tracks - to create remixes, experiment, embellish or destroy what's there. After spending some quality time sitting in hotel rooms on a press tour, it dawned on me that the technology now exists and is already in the hands of some of you.
It seems Reznor's dream of open source audio lives on with the new remix-ready release.
Meanwhile, the producer plans to return to Nine Inch Nails to find his songwriting voice
again, but has not scheduled a release date for a new album.
