Black Swan Composer Scoring Mass Effect 3

A Conversation With Black Swan Composer Clint Mansell on The Quietus has word that the composer of the soundtrack of the acclaimed ballet film is also scoring BioWare's upcoming Mass Effect 3: "I'm doing a video game this year actually. Mass Effect 3. Funnily enough, talking about Mike, we've exchanged emails about the possibility of doing a show featuring the Quartet and people they've collaborated with. It'd be a Kronos show, with different rooms for other people to do their thing, then bringing it all together. It's pretty cool-sounding." Thanks MCV. On a related note, a post on the BioWare Social Network by Jack Wall offers a farewell from the composer of the soundtracks of the first two Mass Effect games. Thanks Game Stooge.

What the fuck? Ive seen the movie and its score is 99% Tchaikovski. So Ill say again. What the fuck??? This guy Clint Mansell did a fine con-job AFAIC with Bioware which is not so bad in my book....

BTW the movie is waaaaay over-rated. Portman did a good job, but she has like 5 lines in the entire movie so I dont really get why everyone and their grandmother praises it like there is no tomorrow...

Black swan wasn't his first job, he's done quite a few amazing soundtracks, like The Fountain, Moon, Requiem for a Dream, The Wrestler -- probably his recognized and most famous and overused piece is from requiem, I'm sure you've heard it -- the list goes on. Granted, this is his first game, and hes doing the final part of a trilogy, which to me strikes as hard work. You'd need to make music that fits with the trilogy and keeps the score "coherent" over the trilogy, it's certainly harder than just getting a new project to work with.
He's quite accomplished.

His most used piece, I'd be surpised if you didn't recognize this.
