Day to Day producer Rob Sachs profiles musician Charlie Clouser, who scored the soundtrack for the horror film Saw. Clouser has a history of writing provocative music as a former member of the band Nine Inch Nails.

Before joining Nine Inch Nails in 1994, Clouser worked with hard-driving bands such as Prong, Marilyn Manson and White Zombie. His instrumental work has appeared on the soundtracks to The Matrix and Scream, and he's currently co-producing the new album by the band Helmet.
