The Hand That Feeds


Trent Reznor has released NIN’s latest single as a GarageBand file.

From the README:

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. I tried a few years ago to do this in shockwave with very limited results.

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. I got to work experimenting and came up with something I think you’ll enjoy.
What I’m giving you in this file is the actual multi-track audio session for “the hand that feeds” in GarageBand format. This is the entire thing bounced over from the actual Pro Tools session we recorded it into. I imported and converted the tracks into AppleLoop format so the size would be reasonable and the tempo flexible.

You can get the file here.

One thought on “The Hand That Feeds

  1. It is amazing to have the opportunity to work with Trent Reznor’s music. I really hope that future artist follow in his footsteps. Many people have already completed remixes of his work.

    A little contest is running right now at this site: (feel free to join in!)

    Check out my work and drop me a line to know your thoughts:
    No. 124. hopeful for halo-SL mix (an industrial, dancy remix)
    No. 127. black spiral SL-mix (a dark and moody slower mix)
