DOWNTOWN MUSIC PUBLISHING has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with GRAMMY- and OSCAR-winning film composer, songwriter and producer ATTICUS ROSS. The signing was announced today by DOWNTOWN SVP Creative AMY DRISCOLL-DUNNING.
ROSS began his career in the U.K. in the mid-'90s working as a programmer and producer. After moving to the U.S. in 2000, he met NINE INCH NAILS' TRENT REZNOR, with whom he would come to collaborate on numerous projects over the course of many years, including five NIN albums and the film scores for a trio of acclaimed DAVID FINCHER-directed films, "The Social Network," "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and the most recent, "Gone Girl." received a 2015 GRAMMY and GOLDEN GLOBE nomination for his work with REZNOR on "Gone Girl" on top of earning a VARIETY ARTISANS AWARD for composers at the 2015 SANTA BARBARA FILM FESTIVAL.
ROSS and REZNOR'S work on 2010's "The Social Network" earned them an ACADEMY AWARD for Best Original Score, and in 2011 the duo took home a GRAMMY for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
"ATTICUS ROSS has always been at the forefront of creating groundbreaking music," said DOWNTOWN's AMY DRISCOLL-DUNNING. "His song production and film scores are unparalleled, and we are honored to welcome him to the DOWNTOWN MUSIC PUBLISHING roster."
ROSS most recently scored the TORONTO FILM FESTIVAL favorite, BILL POHLAD's "Love & Mercy," a movie that focuses on two periods in the life of BRIAN WILSON, and he contributed to MICHAEL MANN's "Blackhat," both in theaters this year. ROSS is currently finishing the music for the documentary "Crocodile Gennadiy," executive produced by TERRENCE MALICK and directed by STEVE HOOVER.
