Clint Mansell High-Rise (Original Score) on Limited Edition 180g LP
Golden Globe and Grammy nominated composer Clint Mansell's brooding, edgy and beautifully unsettled orchestral score to Ben Wheatley's acclaimed film adaptation of J.G Ballard's High-Rise is being made available on vinyl in 2016. Described by Hollywood Reporter as "a lustrous retro-classical score bursting with ironic good cheer," Mansell's music has a meaty, steadfast presence throughout the visual spectacular of the savage societal breakdown.
Former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman turned soundtrack composer, Clint Mansell is best known for his work with long-time collaborator Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, The Fountain, Noah). He also scored Duncan Jones' directorial debut Moon, and has lent his talent to films as diverse as Filth, Faster, and Last Night.
Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, and Elisabeth Moss, High-Rise is a visionary tale of human society slipping into extreme violence. The once-peaceful residents of a desirable apartment block quickly spiral into a world ruled by primal urges in which elevators become vicious battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into brutal raids on "enemy" floors.
