Hand Covers Bruise / Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

The Social NetworkHand Covers Bruise / Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross from The Social Network OST [Null, 2010]

Two weeks ago my life changed.  I got a call and was offered a job to teach at Salisbury University, a course titled “Creativity and Acoustic/Electronic Music.”  I started the next day and in my first class, talked about this song – “Hand Covers Bruise.”

Here, the thing I told myself I wanted to do and the thing I told myself would never be possible, it is real now.  And that first day, to have a lecture on the soundtrack from The Social Network.  And tonight, to see Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross holding the Academy Award for Best Original Score.  And now, to know: I teach music.
