Classical composer[edit]

Really? Is he really a 'classical' or 'contemporary' composer? I think that the article is really misleading in this sense. By no means is he a 'classical' composer, as he ain't one of the 'classics' (Bach, Shostakovich, Mahler, etc..) nor does he belong to the classical epoque (Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn). He's neither a 'contemporary' composer even though one might think that everyone who currently living and composing might be labeled as such.


Hi, why do you insist on a link that doesn't work -- Requiem for a Dream (movie)? What's wrong with Requiem for a Dream? --KF 02:40, 20 Aug 2003 (UTC)

Man on Fire????[edit]

Sorry, I'm erasing Man on Fire from the filmography. It was Harry Gregson-Williams the one who scored that one. --Surten (talk) 23:21, 15 October 2008 (UTC)Surten

Incorrect Words?[edit]

From the article:

The trailer for The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers used a remixed version of the track "Lux Aeterna", re-recorded with a full orchestra and choir. The piece, named "Requiem for a Tower," was made just for the trailer (it was not featured in either Requiem for a Dream or any of Lord of the Rings films) and was composed by Simone Benyacar, Dan Nielsen, and Veigar Margeirsson.

How can this be a remix if the song was re-recorded? Futhermore, how can the piece be composed by Benyacar, et al if it was written by Mansell? Desperate need of a re-write here. ~CS 22:00, 6 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Also this makes little sense: "Despite critical acclaim, Mansell's score went widely unnoticed by both fans and critics".Malick78 12:08, 22 March 2007 (UTC)
  • There, I reworded both sections a little bit. Hopefully, they read better now.  Tabanger  00:17, 23 March 2007 (UTC)

"Early Work"[edit]

Pop Will Eat Itself were massive on the British indie scene and I don't think it's correct to fob this part of the guy's life off as one line under "early work". The structure was also a bit amiss. --kingboyk 12:09, 5 November 2007 (UTC)

Vancouver Canucks[edit]

Since we have ""Lux Aeterna" has since become popular, with both the original and the orchestration having appeared in a wide variety of commercials and trailers, including the trailer for the Red Sox-Yankee games in the 2007 baseball season" should we add that the song was used for the Canucks 2009 playoff opening song? —Preceding unsigned comment added by KingRaven44 (talkcontribs) 04:33, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

There is an ad nauseam list of the places where the piece appears at Lux Aeterna (Requiem for a Dream). Strictly speaking, the orchestral version Requiem for a Tower is nothing to do with the film soundtrack, which was played by the Kronos string quartet. It should be enough to say that the orchestral version has been used in numerous trailers, video games etc, rather than creating lists that are unencyclopedic.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 07:19, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

2011 Norway attacks[edit]

Mansell is in the news in connection with the 2011 Norway attacks. According to media reports, the suspect "Anders Breivik is believed to have drowned out the screams of his victims by listening to film music from the Lord of the Rings on his iPod. Lux Aeterna, which was used in the battle scenes, is described by the killer as ‘very inspiring and invokes the type of passionate rage within you’."[1] It should be pointed out that Lux Æterna (song) was written for Requiem for a Dream and was never used in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, only in one of the trailers, and this probably refers to the orchestral remix known as The Two Towers [2].--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 09:24, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

an encyclopedia doesn't report what is believed, besides Mansell might have been relevant for Breitvik, but B. isn't relevant for Mansell. --tickle me 02:58, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
