You might not know Clint Mansell’s name, but you’ll certainly be familiar with his work. Lux Aeterna, a piece he composed for the soundtrack to Requiem for a Dream, has become part of the cultural fabric, featuring in adverts, film trailers and football matches, and he has composed scores for films as diverse as Smokin’ Aces, Doom and Moon. We recently had the chance to speak to the former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman where we discussed his career, the feeling of having his compositions become so ubiquitous, and his work with Park Chan-Wook on the soundtrack to Stoker.

We began by discussing the piano duet played by India (Mia Wasikowska) and Charlie (Matthew Goode) midway through the film, a track that, as Mansell put it, “It needed to be done prior to shooting, so it could be reproduced on camera, so that was in place.”
