Make your own nin remix album!

So I wanted to share this Cool Thing that Nine Inch Nails is doing.

Trent's released the individual tracks from "Year Zero" as wav files on a bonus disc with the new Y34RZ3R0R3M1X3D album, for fans to remix. (I think they're also available on his website, but it's crashing my browser on Ubuntu at the moment.) Anyway, I gave it a try, and it's way fun:

I've always been drawn to NIN more for their light-and-floaty than their loud-and-thrashy, so I took my favorite songs off the album and pulled out the noise, leaving only the beauty. It's NIN I can sleep to. :-)

Anyone who likes NIN and is interested in learning audio editing should check this out. I used Audacity on Ubuntu; Trent includes software for Mac and PC on the disc. And if you give a listen to my "diminished" mixes, lemme know what you think. :-)
