BLACK MIRROR is a sci-fi anthology series that explores a twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide. The series, which debuted in the UK in 2011 on Channel 4, with a second season airing in 2013, developed a cult following both in the UK and, through streaming on Netflix, in the US. On October 21, 2016 Netflix debuted the six-episode third season. This season featured an amazing array of composers including Max Richter (“Nosedive”), Bear McCreary (“Playtest”), Alex Heffes (“Shut Up and Dance”), Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow (“Men Against Fire”), and Martin Phipps (“Hated In The Nation”).
As front man of Pop Will Eat Itself, Clint Mansell released seven albums between 1987 & 1996, and notched up 11 Top 40 hits. The band splintered at their peak to pursue various side projects. A chance introduction to Darren Aronofsky in NYC led to Clint’s film score debut, the acclaimed independent movie, Pi (1998). This director-composer union continued with Aronofsky’s ambitious follow-up, Requiem for a Dream (2000). Mansell’s unique approach to composing combined with the success and acclaim of these scores quickly made him an in-demand composer, and prompted his move to Los Angeles. Mansell’s creation of the soundtrack for Aronofsky’s third film, The Fountain (2006) earned him his first Golden Globe Nomination (Best Original Score). Reuniting with Kronos Quartet and bringing in Scottish post-rockers Mogwai, it was also the work that received two awards at 2007’s World Soundtrack Awards (Best Original Score & Public Choice Award), among other plaudits.
In addition to his long standing director/composer collaboration with Aronofsky, Mansell has kept his options broad – seeking out projects from dark independent movies to more mainstream affairs such as Smoking’ Aces (2007) and Sahara (2005), Doom (2005) and Definitely Maybe (2008). On the other side of the spectrum, Clint provided the score for Duncan Jones’ award winning directorial debut Moon (2009) and Massy Tadjedin’s Last Night (2010). Filth (2013), the film adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s novel, directed by Jon S Baird, starring James McAvoy was also scored by Mansell. Most recently Clint has completed the score for Ben Wheatley’s take on J G Ballard’s HIGH RISE, which premiered at Toronto International Film Festival was released in early 2016.
