The rise of Clint Mansell‘s career has been impressive to watch. Breaking out by tuning up the dread in Darren Aronofsky‘s “Requiem For A Dream,” in addition to becoming the director’s go-to composer, the artist has logged impressive credits with Park Chan-Wook (“Stoker“), Duncan Jones (“Moon“), Joe Carnahan (“Smokin’ Aces“), and more, and this year sees him add another auteur to his belt: Ben Wheatley. Mansell has penned the score for the director’s upcoming “High-Rise.”
Based on J.G. Ballard’s book, the starry movie — featuring —Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, James Purefoy, Peter Ferdinando and Keeley Hawes — tells a wildly surreal tale of a luxury apartment complex that is soon overcome by disorder and madness. Mansell’s score slides right in nicely to fit the mood of snowballing chaos.
“High-Rise” opens in the U.S. via On Demand, Amazon Video and iTunes on April 28th and in theaters on May 13th. The soundtrack is now on CD, with vinyl to come soon. Listen below.
