Oscar-winning composer and longtime Nine Inch Nails producer Atticus Ross has forayed into the world of American television. Ross wrote the spooky opening montage music for AMC’s new Walking Dead prequel series, Fear the Walking Dead, which you stream below.

Ross may be a newcomer to the realm of television, but he has an extensive resume composing for the entertainment sphere. He’s worked with Trent Reznor to compose and record the soundtracks for the David Fincher films The Social Network (for which Ross and Reznor won Oscars), The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Gone Girl.
