Death is the Road to Awe

Darren Aronofsky is a masterful filmmaker, and The Fountain is no exception, but I can’t image what his films would be like without the emotional scoring of Clint Mansell.

Death is the Road to Awe pretty much encompasses the depth of the entire score and slowly builds in intensity towards the film’s climax.

Prospero’s Magic

I’m generally a pretty big fan of Michael Nyman, but for some reason I find the original soundtrack from Prospero’s Books to be a bit thin, which is why I was glad to find a full orchestral rendition of a few pieces by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in an album that was released to feature Nyman’s Piano Concerto.

The RPO’s rendition of Prospero’s Magic is a beautiful example of the depth that a full orchestra brings to this work.
