The Society of Composers and Lyricists Seminar: PATRIOTS DAY - Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross  

Award winning singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist/composer, Trent Reznor has traversed the musical landscape. In the music world, he is well-known as the frontman of his industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, characterized by his strong melodic pop instincts meshed with harsh electronic beats and traditional song lyrics. The band Nine Inch Nails have released eight studio albums including several multi-platinum albums. As a film composer, Reznor along with with long-time collaborator Atticus Ross have received critical acclaim, which is evident by them receiving an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a Grammy.

Reznor’s many collaborations include recording artists such as Marilyn Manson and Tori Amos. Most recently he has been working with long-time collaborator, film composer Atticus Ross, who had worked with Reznor on Nine Inch Nails albums’ Ghosts I-IV and The Slip. The two worked so well together they accepted an invitation from director David Fincher to write an original score for his film The Social Network. The soundtrack was released, and the pair won both an Oscar and a Golden Globe for their score. Again teaming with FincherReznor and Ross also wrote an original score for the American cinematic version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; the 39-track album won them a Grammy for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media. Reznor reunited with Ross for the score to Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl.

Reznor and Ross returned in 2016, this time composing the scores for the Boston Marathon bombing movie Patriots Day and the National Geographic film Before the Flood, which featured collaborations with Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwai. Before the Flood also features the song by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross “A Minute to Breathe.”

British composer/producer/programmer Atticus Ross has worked steadily since the mid-'90s, collaborating with Tim Simenon's Bomb the Bass and Barry Adamson as a programmer, and performing with his own band with wife Claudia Sarne12 Rounds. The duo's first album, Jitterjuice, was released by Polydor in the U.K., but they were dropped by the label the following year; however, Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor signed them to his label Nothing Records, which released My Big Hero. This began a long collaboration between Ross and Reznor, which intensified when Ross moved to the U.S.; he earned production and programming credits on NIN's albums With Teeth, Year Zero, and The Slip, and co-wrote Ghosts I-IV as well. During this time, Ross also worked with Reznor on projects that included Zack de la RochaJane's Addiction, the ill-fated Tapeworm collective, and How to Destroy Angels, which also included Reznor's wife, former West Indian Girl member Mariqueen Maandig, as a member.

Outside of his work with ReznorRoss collaborated with Bad Religion's Brett Gurewitz in the band Error, which released a self-titled EP, and also did production and remixing work with artists including Joe BarresiCoheed and CambriaKornGrace Jones, and Telepathe over the years. Ross' first film music work was the score to the Hughes Brothers' television show Touching Evil, a collaboration with Sarne and his brother, Leopold Ross, but his big break was scoring the Hughes' movie The Book of Eli, which earned him a Discovery of the Year nomination at the World Soundtrack Awards. Later that year, Ross and Reznor collaborated on the score to David Fincher's The Social Network, and ultimately won that year's Golden Globe and Academy Awards for best original score. Ross and Reznor reteamed for Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and for the director's thriller Gone GirlRoss continued to garner high-profile scoring gigs on his own as well, including Love & Mercy, a biopic about the Beach BoysBrian Wilson. The following years saw more work from the composer, namely a credit on the composition team for Michael Mann's thriller Blackhat, and his score for the movie Triple 9, which he created alongside his brother Leopold RossClaudia Sarne, and U.K. electronic artist Bobby Krlic. The Ross brothers and Krlic collaborated again in 2016 for their soundtrack to Steve Hoover's documentary film Almost Holy. He returned later that year with a number of compositions on the collaborative soundtrack for Fisher Stevens and Leonardo DiCaprio's documentary about the impact of climate change, Before the Floodincluding the song “A Minute To Breathe.” The effort marked Ross' fourth soundtrack collaboration with Reznor as well as his first with revered composer Gustavo Santaolalla.
