Born Clinton Daryl Mansell, Clint Mansell is an English musician, film score composer and former lead singer/guitarist of Pop Will Eat Itself.
I first discovered his music whilst watching The Fountain. I was completely amazed by the music and how it just seemed to intensify every scene, so I immediately bought myself a copy of the soundtrack.
His music is a blend of Instrumental, ambient and modern classical genres. He has scored many films, but my favourites are The Fountain, Moon and Black Swan. He is also famous for the now iconic track from Requiem For a Dream, which has been featured in many other pieces of video since.
