Film composer (and former Pop Will Eat Itself frontman) Clint Mansell wrapped up two consecutive night performances at Church of St. Paul the Apostle last night (April 4) as part of the Wordless Music Series. Director Darren Aronofky, whose films have all featured Mansell scores, introduced the evening. Helping him realize his music in a live setting were Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), frequent soundtrack collaborator Carly Paradis, plus Mike Fonte and Brian Emrich, a string quartet, not to mention vocalists Emily Wells and Peter Broderick. Selections came from his soundtracks to Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler, The Fountain, Moon and this year’s Stoker.
Wells sang on Stoker‘s “If I Ever Had a Heart” which is streaming, along with more pictures from last night’s performance, below.
