Trent Reznor had a busy day today - besides releasing two separate projects (he wrote the theme for Call Of Duty Black Ops II plus released An Omen ep with his side project How To Destroy Angels) he appeared on Reddit to answer fan questions.  Some of the more interesting revelations he made are posted below:

On the Year Zero miniseries:

"This is currently in a holding state. We didn't find the right match with a writer, and really have been avoiding doing what we should have done from the beginning: write it ourselves. We = Rob and myself. This project means a lot to me and will see the light of day in one form or another."

On The Fragile reissue:

"The 5.1 mixes are done and sound amazing. Alan was the only person who could have possibly done it, and he did not disappoint. There are a couple other elements involved that we want to get right before we put this into production. These involve packaging and additional content. Patience, my friends."

On the first computer/software he used for music:

"I had a Commodore 64 with, I think, the Sequential Circuits Model 64 Sequencer Cartridge. And it was the greatest thing in the world (or so I thought at the time). Moving on... The first "real" platform I used for composition was a Mac+ running Performer. Pretty Hate Machine was done with this."

On his favorite gear he's ever owned:

"My Dad got me a Wurlitzer 200a electric piano as a preteen, and it pretty much changed the trajectory of my life. That piano is long gone, but I did recently pick one up, which I love."

On coming up with 'Halo' for all the NIN releases:

"I remember Depeche Mode did a similar thing and I thought it was cool. Somebody please remind me what the word Depeche Mode used was, I'm too old to remember what it was."

(Depeche Mode used Stumm, Mutel, and Bong)

On what's next for him:

"A number of things. Tweaking some things for the HTDA full LP (coming in Spring), helping Josh out on a new QOTSA track, working with Roy, starting rehearsals for two bands."

In case you're wondering, Trent didn't reveal much about new NIN material.  A fan asked:  "Can you disclosure any future plans for Nine Inch Nails?"

Trent's full response: "Sure I could."
