    Composer Clint Mansell spoke with NPR's Tim Greiving on Morning Edition about creating the score for director Darren Aronofsky's 2000 film, Requiem for a Dream. "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. The 20th anniversary vinyl edition of the soundtrack, performed by Kronos Quartet, is due December 4 and is available to pre-order now.
