Atticus Ross (born January 16, 1968) is an English musician. According to Songfacts, the well-connected English musician was an Eton contemporary of British Prime Minister David Cameron, and was in the same boarding house as London mayor Boris Johnson and Lady Di’s brother, Earl Spencer. His father, Ian, was co-founder of the pirate radio ship Radio Caroline.

Atticus first came to notice in the mid ’90s as a programmer for Tim Simenon’s Bomb the Bass during the album periods “Unknown Territory” and “Clear.” He worked on a number of production and remix projects with Simenon as well as forming a collaborative relationship with former Bad Seed Barry Adamson. He programmed “The Negro Inside Me” and “Oedipus Schmoedipus” and produced “As Above So Below” before forming his own band 12 Rounds with Claudia Sarne and Adam Holden. They released 2 albums, Jitterjuice (Polydor) and My Big Hero (Nothing Records). A third full-length album was produced by Trent Reznor for Nothing Records, but ultimately never released, although he returned to work with Reznor on With Teeth, Year Zero, Ghosts I-IV, and The Slip.

He scored the film The Book of Eli, released in 2010.
He co-scored the film The Social Network, released in 2010, with Trent Reznor.

    Spotify totally craps the scrobbling of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo ost, hopefully other authors would get their names to the titles.

    Safe is by far the best song from the soundtrack, the problem is that it's too short!!!

    Why is "The Passenger" so short... :( Fantastic mood in it, and I wish it'd last longer...

    For all of you, book of eli is a movie, this is the score. We don't judge music for the visuals being showed at the same time, so stop crying.

    The book of 'The Road' was amazing, the movie was really dull. 'The Book Of Eli' was pretty good. Obviously the score really helped it!
