Clint Mansell is one of my favorite film composers working today, and has been since hearing his first work on Darren Aronofsky’s Pi. His incredible score for Requiem for a Dream has been re-purposed in countless trailers and commercials over the years. He has continued to work on Aronofsky’s projects over the years and his Tchaikovsky-inspired score for Black Swan is nothing less than brilliant.
Mansell’s work on Duncan Jones’ feature big screen debut Moon was met with acclaim as well, and I was very excited to hear what Clint had up his sleeves for his second Jones collaboration, on the film Source Code. I had even heard a bit of early music Mansell created for the opening credits while on a visit to the editing room. But it appears that it was not meant to be. Clint Mansell will not be scoring Source Code after all.
