Whether it’s in his music as Nine Inch Nails, his soundtrack work in collaboration with Atticus Ross, or with How to Destroy Angels, Trent Reznor’s sound is always uniquely identifiable.

Although part of this is due to his sound design, involving digital distortion and noise processing a variety of sound sources, his use of harmony, chords, and melody also has a major impact on his sound.

Reznor’s music has a distinctly anxious tone that sets the scene for his often bleak lyrics. In the film Sound City, Reznor explains that he has a music theory foundation, specifically in relation to the keyboard, and this subconciously affects his writing.
