Atticus Ross, the Grammy-nominated producer and musician has written his first feature film score for the Hughes Brothers’ much-anticipated post-apocalyptic adventure, The Book of Eli. Atticus has previously collaborated with Trent Reznor on four Nine Inch Nails albums and produced the Perry Farrell single “Go All the Way (Into the Twilight)” for the hit film Twilight.
Ross’ music is a unique hybrid score of electronic and organic elements; writing with his wife (Claudia Sarne) and brother (Leopold Ross), the basic tracks were recorded at his studio in Los Angeles before departing to London where it was finished in Abbey Road Studios with a full 80-piece orchestra. The soundtrack was released as a standard CD, a deluxe version featuring three bonus tracks, and an exclusive iTunes package featuring a remix of “Panoramic” by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek.
