“To me, the role of producer is to present a variety of possibilities to the band. I think it involves mainly theatrics, so that you can that is good, or that really does suck, in all aspects.”—Atticus Ross
“[The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack] is an experimentation in the notion of space. Without that sounding too pretentious, it was simply spacial experimentation. It feels like there’s a depth. Getting that was something we spent a lot of time on, especially because we’re sitting less than five feet from each other.”—Atticus Ross on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack
do you think, realistically, that 12 rounds will ever release any new material or that Claudia will work on any of Atticus' other projects vocally? My guess is probably no, and it makes me sad.
The third album is still meant to slowly come out, although it has been quite a while. I think 12 Rounds probably is now a defunct project sadly, although they did have a lot of music whilst they were around, and the trickle of 3rd album tracks might eventually come through. Personally I’d love to see a boxset of all of 12 Rounds’ music, including the unreleased stuff, but I fear that’s unlikely.
In addition: Claudia hasn’t worked vocally, to my knowledge, since she left nearLY, but hasn’t stated a reason why - to me, that means she may come back to it, hopefully soon.
