Dee Barnes has written an essay for Gawker titled "Here's What's Missing From Straight Outta Compton: Me and the Other Women Dr. Dre Beat Up," detailing her experience being assaulted at the hands of Dr. Dre and her reaction to the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton, which ignores Dre's violence towards women entirely. One of the most disturbing pieces of information is that the Compton director F. Gary Gray was the cameraman filming the interview between Barnes and Ice Cube that led to her assault. I can not encourage you to read the entire piece here enough.

It's been a while since we talked about Nils Frahm, though the Berlin based composer has certainly been busy.

Until then, head to the replies to listen to his new song "Them" and read a lovely note from Nils himself.

Trent Reznor recently talked with The Wall Street Journal about the Gone Girl score:
"I was listening to that calming, placating music and thought, we need to tap into this. The movie is about the facade of the good neighbor, the good Christian, the good wife. So the notion was to start with music that's attempting to give you a hug." The result is a score composed of lilting, haunting synths interspersed with doleful piano melodies and accentuated by the orchestral arrangements.

Our interview with Nathan Johnson, the composer of one of 2012's best films, Looper, can be found here.
From the InterviewI love jumping around between genres, but there is something about my aesthetic sensibility that always draws me to unique instruments and nontraditional approaches to things. Even when were using an orchestra or traditional instruments, Im exploring different ways to play them or different ways to record them.

Press ReleaseBleeding Through Film Video For "Love In Slow Motion"; Continues Story of "Kill To Believe"

Will Brandan's wife become food for the cannibalistic hillbillies? Is the rest of the band lobotomized zombies? What exactly is that dark figure in the hood? These were some of the questions we were left with at the cliffhnager ending of Bleeding Through's video for the song "Kill To Believe." That video was the first single from the band's new full-length album, The Truth, which has quickly scanned over 75,000 albums in the U.S. since its release earlier this year.
