HBO's Westworld - PMJ influenced? - Miguel - 10-04-2016

Quote:Ranking the Songs on the Dope 'Westworld' Soundtrack

We need a piano version of "Black Hole Sun." We just didn't know that we needed it.

...Nobody asked for a wonky player piano saloon version of “Black Hole Sun” but Westworld surely gave it to us. In another cleverly embedded detail within the show, the player piano in the dusty Westworld saloon run by Madame Maeve (Thandie Newton) and her band of prosthetic prostitutes lurches to life with a simple version of the 1994 track off the famed alt-rock band Soundgarden’s album Superunknown.


Quote:there's a saloon-whorehouse piano, and in the premiere, you'll detect Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun," and later without the piano, The Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black" in a unique configuration. The second episode of the series finds the saloon belting out some Radiohead. This is hopefully something that will continue as long as the show remains on the air, because it's a subtle, interesting easter egg to hear. You'll first hear the song, you'll realize it's familiar, and then you'll eventually remember what it is.

Quote:"Part of the fun of it, once we clear the song, is to create an arrangement of the song that can then play on a player piano,” Nolan said. “Then we have a little company that we found in Southern California that still operates for all this time, and they can create the paper reels that we then thread into several actual player pianos. They’ve all been carefully restored. So this company can create the reel with that piece of contemporary music on it. There was a piece of Radiohead in the second episode as well, so we get a Radiohead song, we create our reel and we put it through. It’s really, really cool. It’s been a lot of fun.”

Quote:"I loved Ramin Djawadi’s interpretation of 'Black Hole Sun,’” said Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell. "It perfectly fits the mood of the scene, and reveals a duality that has always existed in the song.”
