|A Score By Clint Mansell
Original Soundtrack Recording
01 Critical Mass
“The soundtrack sounded incredible in the cinema. I was very f**king happy indeed… Revel in the sound of a bombastic and hubristic 70s that was doomed to failure… Enjoy.” Ben Wheatley
‘’Proud to proclaim that in divisive world of Ben Wheatley’s High Rise, I’m solidly in the YES camp. Particular plaudits to Clint Mansell’’ – Mark Kermode – BBC
Golden Globe and Grammy nominated composer Clint Mansell’s brooding, edgy and beautifully unsettled orchestral score to Ben Wheatley’s eagerly awaited film adaptation of J.G Ballard’s High-Rise.
Former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman turned soundtrack composer, Clint Mansell is best known for his work with long time collaborator Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, The Fountain, Noah). He also scored Duncan Jones’ Directorial debut Moon, and He has also lent to his talent to films as diverse as Filth, Faster, and Last Night.
Starring Tom Hiddleston, Jeremy Irons, Sienna Miller, Luke Evans, Elisabeth Moss, High-Rise is a visionary tale of human society slipping into extreme violence. The once-peaceful residents of a desirable apartment block quickly spiral into a world ruled by primal urges in which elevators become vicious battlegrounds and cocktail parties degenerate into brutal raids on “enemy” floors.
The film received its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September 2015, its European premiere at the 63rd San Sebastián Film Festival and is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2016 through StudioCanal.
