Charlie Clouser

This week, as I’m away on holiday, we have an interview special with the one and only Charlie Clouser.

Charlie is a multi-instrumentalist composer, musician, producer, programmer and remix artist who has worked with some of the seminal recording artists of the last twenty years. Charlie, who was a member of Nine Inch Nails, currently scores Fox’s hit M. Night Shyamalan show Wayward Pines, starring Matt Dillon and Carla Gugino.

Charlie has scored several films and television shows, including the Saw films, which instantly became cult classics, CBS’s Numb3rs and NBC’s Las Vegas. Charlie also co-wrote the chilling main title theme for FX’s American Horror Story. His scores for the subsequent Saw series continue to define the films. Raw, grinding, propulsive, punctuated by incredible layers of sound and energy, they are classics in the horror genre. Charlie has also scored such films as Resident Evil: Extinction, Sony’s Pictures’ The Stepfather, and The Collection.

Charlie came into prominence as a member of Nine Inch Nails from 1994-2000. Before joining the band as keyboardist/programmer, he’d already built a following with his extreme synth work and remixes for Prong, Marilyn Manson, White Zombie, and others. His dense layers of chopped up beats and grinding synth bass lines were instrumental in defining the sound of White Zombie’s double-platinum 1994 breakthrough album Astrocreep: 2000 led to numerous collaborations with frontman Rob Zombie.

In the interview we discuss his work on Wayward Pines, but not before a brief discussion about the LA weather, and a chat about the changes coming to iconic tv show Top Gear, of which he’s a huge fan!
