Nine Inch Nails is widely considered one of the most important bands of the past few decades, paving the wait for punk and industrial rock bands to massive success. But, this is isn't news. Neither is the fact that the Saw movie franchise helped define the horror movies in the past in their 8 iterations. What do these two brands have to do with each other? Enter Charlie Clouser, former keyboard player of NIN, who has now finished scoring the Jigsaw movie. In this episode of In Conversation, we discuss everything from his humble beginnings of working in a music store, to becoming a household name. If you're looking to get into the film scoring business, or are just curious what it was like to be apart of such an influential band, this is the podcast for you. Massive thanks to Charlie for the opportunity, to chat for over 3 hours. Enjoy.
