You should hear it - Clint Mansell

Hello fellow readers, I bring to you one more thing that you should hear. This time it's a song from the soundtrack of the movie "The Fountain". The name of the song is Death is the road to awe and you can listen to it here:

First of all, if you haven't seen the movie , go see it. Rent it, buy it, steal it, i don't care. Just see it. It's from the director Darren Aronofsky and it's a masterpiece, a cult film if you'd like. It stars Rachel Weisz and Hugh Jackman. You migh be confused by it at first, but give it a chance and you'll be amazed.

The film wouldn't be what it is without it's soundtrack. And what a soundtrack it is! Darren almost always relies on a special person to produce the soundtracks to his films. That special man is called Clint Mansell.

You should hear everything that this man creates. Everything is amazing but i singled out the soundtrack from The Fountain.
Why you ask? Because he made a collaboration with artists like Kronos Quartet and Mogwai. Yes, you read that right. Mogwai and KQ participated in the making of this soundtrack. Two more reasons to listen to it.

You should also listen to the soundtracks of Requiem for a Dream and The Wrestler. Yes, the man is that good. I should also suggest you listen to the less known World Traveler.
