Clint Mansell talks to Little White Lies about some of his most well known film scores as he prepares to tour Uneasy Listening: an Evening with Clint Mansell in the UK which I will be very sad to miss!
Some of his work includes; The Black Swan, Requiem For A Dream and one of my favourite soundtracks ever - Moon.
“Moon was a particularly special project to work on, it’s still probably the best script I’ve ever read. It spoke to me so much and I really connected with it, especially on its themes of isolation and what it means to be human. Sam Rockwell’s performance is just fantastic and Duncan [Jones] was just great at letting you do what you do. It’s a little bit of that first filmmaker thing again, I think, just about the thrill of doing it. It’s not about bums on seats – something that inevitably enters the equation as time goes on – the earlier films are just about the thrill of doing it and exploring your ideas. That’s liberating. It’s like the freedom of starting out doing music – it’s based around the feeling that you can do anything.”
