Splice could've easily been scored by Trent Reznor, Jonathan Davis or Marilyn Manson.
The film has a raw darkness that'd lend itself perfectly to the mad ears of Korn's mainman, Nine Inch Nails' mastermind or Mr. Manson. Splice's chief location, the lab, possesses a calculated uneasiness that instantly causes the viewer to want more, which is the same feeling that The Downward Spiral or Life is Peachy still gives listeners to this day.
For Adrien Brody, music remains a crucial performance tool. He explains, "I usually do restrict certain music that would conflict with how my character would feel. I definitely cut out all hip hop and modern music when I did The Pianist."
So his Splice playlist had to mirror the film's darkness. He goes on, "Splice is very atmospheric. You can go to places that can only happen in your imagination. It's kind of a tragic fairy tale; it's more like Grimm's fairy tales."
Meanwhile, Delphine Chaneac's musical headspace was just as dynamic as any of the movie's spliced organisms. Delphine, who's a DJ herself, adds, "I listened to some classical music to play the loneliness and I listened to The Cure for the hostile, powerful and tough part of Dren."
In order to get us closer to the sonic aspects of this modern "Grim" fairy tale, Adrien Brody and Delphine Chaneac shared some musical selections with ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino in this exclusive interview. Check it out below and in the video.
Adrien Brody's Playlist:
1. Nine Inch nails — Trent Reznor
Adrien Brody: "I probably played a lot of ambient, computerized sequenced music—which I listen to a lot anyway—like Trent Reznor. I try to sedate Dren. To quiet the beast, you give her some nice, classical music and jazz. The [Nine Inch Nails] is behind closed doors [Laughs]."
Delphine Chaneac's Playlist:
1. The Cure
Delphine Chaneac: "It's strange [Laughs]. I can't choose a favorite Cure song; they're too good!"
Delphine Chaneac: "I saw one concert last week that was so good by Coco. She's Sting's daughter. She sings rock 'n' roll; she's so charismatic, and she's only 15-years-old!"
As for what song Dren might dig, you'll have to check out the videohere and below…
