Clint Mansell

(born Clinton Darryl Mansell, 7 January 1963, in Coventry, England) is a Golden Globe nominated musician and composer.

Mansell was the lead singer and guitarist of the British band, Pop Will Eat Itself. After the disbanding of PWEI in 1996, Mansell broke into the world of film scoring when his friend, director Darren Aronofsky, gave him the opportunity to score his debut film, π.

Despite critical acclaim, Mansell's score went widely unnoticed by the general public. However, the soundtrack release, placing Mansell's work alongside tracks from Autechre, Aphex Twin, Orbital and Roni Size, did win many fans from the IDM and electronica communities.

Main article: Requiem for a Dream (soundtrack)

Mansell's score for π was followed up by his score for Aronofsky's next film, Requiem for a Dream, and the score became a cult hit. The trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers contained a reworked version of the track "Lux Aeterna," utilizing a full orchestra and choir. The piece, named "Requiem for a Tower", was made just for the trailer. The orchestration was arranged by Simone Benyacar, Dan Nielsen, and Veigar Margeirsson.

"Lux Aeterna" has since become extremely popular, with both the original and the orchestration having appeared in a wide variety of commercials and trailers, including trailers for the films Zathura, The Da Vinci Code, Lost and Sunshine.

The soundtrack for Requiem for a Dream also confirmed its popularity with the remix album Requiem for a Dream: Remixed, which contained new mixes of the music by Paul Oakenfold, Josh Wink, Jagz Kooner, and Delerium, amongst others.
