Mansell, Clint & Kronos Quartet - Requiem for a dream LP
A reissue of the first-ever vinyl edition of Clint Mansell's haunting score to Darren Aronofsky's 2000 film, performed by Kronos Quartet. The album, first released on vinyl for Record Store Day 2016, is pressed on two 140-gram LPs, and features the original soundtrack, plus two bonus tracks. This was Mansell’s second of several collaborations with Aronofsky, following 1997’s pi, and features arrangements by David Lang of Bang on a Can. The film stars Academy Award-winner Ellen Burstyn, Jared Leto, Jennifer Connelly and Marlon Wayans, and was adapted from the 1978 novel by Hubert Selby, Jr. (Last Exit to Brooklyn), who also wrote the screenplay with Aronofsky. Set on the rusted mean streets of Coney Island, Brooklyn, Requiem for a Dream tells the parallel stories of four people pursuing their dreams of better lives.
