Fincher was rather specific in his instructions to Trent and his songwriting partner, Atticus Ross:  “Think about the really terrible music you hear in massage parlors, the way that it artificially tries to make you feel like everything’s OK. Then imagine that sound starting to curdle and unravel.” There’s a nice long interview with Trent about the project at The Wall Street Journal.
