    Listen: Clint Mansell Talks "Requiem for a Dream" with NPR's "Morning Edition"

    Composer Clint Mansell was featured on NPR's Morning Edition today. He spoke with Tim Greiving about creating the score for director Darren Aronofsky's 2000 film, Requiem for a Dream, and more. "Requiem for a Dream celebrates its 20th anniversary this fall" says Greiving, "and in that time there's at least one part of its legacy that's never faded: the music. The movie's haunted original score spawned a kind of breakout hit that would ripple through media for years to come." You can listen to the Morning Edition piece here:

    Mansell's Requiem for a Dream score, performed by Kronos Quartet, returns to vinyl for the film's 20th anniversary year, on December 4, 2020, available to pre-order here. The soundtrack was originally released on Nonesuch in 2000; the first vinyl edition was released for Record Store Day in 2016 with new artwork and two previously unreleased bonus tracks. The new 2-LP vinyl edition, which also includes the bonus tracks, features the original 2000 soundtrack cover art for the anniversary. "Brilliant stuff," says Classic FM.

    Composer Caroline Shaw's new album, Narrow Sea, featuring Sō Percussion, Dawn Upshaw, and Gilbert Kalish's performance of the title piece—five parts, each a new setting of a text from The Sacred Harp, the 19th-century collection of shape-note hymns—is due next Friday, January 22, on Nonesuch. Here, the artists talk with writer Matthew Guerrieri about the album, which also includes Sō Percussion's performance of Shaw's Taxidermy. Find out why she tells Guerrieri: "I was telling a friend, half-jokingly, that, in a lot of my music, I’m trying to figure out a way to talk about death and mortality, or think about it."
