Review: The Fountain
Before I begin this review, I need to provide a bit of context. I loved The Fountain. I will need to see it many more times before I actually understand it, but it was one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. Due to its slow nature, Clint Mansell's score is probably one of the most necessary scores in film these days, as he added the needed sense of motion that the imagery and plot lacked. The one thing I just feel I have to point out, however, (and I am allowed since one of the album track titles uses the name) is that Xibalba was the Maya underworld, which was seen as watery and accessible through caves. Therefore, while the idea and the imagery of the dying star resembling heaven was great, using it to represent the Maya underworld was a bit of a stretch. Finally, this is the third Clint Mansell album I have reviewed, and the three scores could not be more different. In fact, if I didn't know better, I would not say it was the same composer. Sahara's jazzy, Bond-styled action and Doom's techno/rock are nothing like The Fountain, and Mansell's ability to adapt his style to the film is quite impressive.
There are two main motifs for The Fountain, the first is a simple 5 note progression, which is performed following the downbeat in the measure. A secondary three-note motif is also used throughout and has similarities to part of John Powell's Phoenix Theme from X-Men: The Last Stand. These motifs are performed in various forms and at times blended together in a running string line that becomes the full theme. The album opens and closes with quiet piano cues, the latter of which plays over the end titles. In 'The Last Man,' the motifs are hinted at in slow string statements, but do not come in fully until 'Tree of Life,' which is built up to in the preceding cue. Photo editor for mac torrent. 'Tree of Life' starts out with heavy drums and an electric cello performing the three-note motif. This heavier tone of this cue, which returns in force in the finale 'Death is the Road to Awe,' is, tonally, very similar to some of the harsh electronic parts of Hans Zimmer's Black Hawk Down.
As I mentioned before, Mansell keeps the music moving, even at times where percussion is absent, with some form of pulsing string line, the way a number of scores have done recently, such as The Island and King Arthur. This can be heard in 'Death Is A Disease' and the pulse stands alone at times and is joined by a solo cello at others. This movement is not always present. 'Xibalba' is a slower cue that actually has a faint hint of a choir at the end. 'Death Is the Road to Awe' is without a doubt the highlight of the album, with a broad spectrum that encompasses everything Mansell did for the film. It opens with a soft tremoring moving line and a faint statement of the full theme following the five note motif. The piano takes over with bold offbeats and the three note motif, with a drawn out final note. The theme comes in and out, replaced by the motifs as the volume gradually builds, adding chimes and more instruments as well as the electric guitar sounds. Toward the end, percussion is added as well. With two minutes remaining, the music stops. Then the electric guitars and cello come back with bold strings playing snippets of the theme in a slightly faster tempo and both motifs coming in the background. Then it stops again before the choir finally comes in after being hinted at only once. The three note motif plays under it and more pulsing strings and chimes bring the cue to a close. I can already hear this cue being played in trailers.
The score is performed beautifully by The Kronos Quartet and the rock band Mogwai, who had songs featured on last year's The Constant Gardener soundtrack. A number of the cues, I believe, were used more than once during the film, but for the sake of avoiding too much repetition, the album was cut down to a manageable length. Mansell's score appears simple, with a limited variety of instruments and what appear to be simple themes, but this score is in fact a very delicately layered piece that works almost as well as a classical work as it does a film score. One interesting result of this score is that it shows how well electronic elements can work with an orchestral score to enhance it rather than take away from it. I definitely think this score should be up for consideration come Oscar time.

The Fountain: Music from the Motion Picture is the soundtrack album to the 2006 film The Fountain directed by Darren Aronofsky. Released on November 27, 2006, through Nonesuch Records, the album is a collaboration between contemporary classical composer and frequent Aronofsky collaborator Clint Mansell, classical string quartet the Kronos Quartet, and post-rock band Mogwai. The score received mixed reviews from critics and was nominated for several awards.
Plugin alliance all bundle 4.6 mega. I have tried almost every amp plugin around, and in over 12 years of using amp plugins, these are the BEST. The Mesa Dual Rectifier feels like the real thing, the Diezel Herbert and VH4 are the best models you will find for those amps. The MEGA Bundle includes the best channel strips based on legendary desks that I have ever heard.I’m talking about SSL 4000 E and G, a couple awesome Neve consoles, and the rare Focusrite Studio Console.( The SSL 9000 J was added in April 2020)The guitar amps and bass amps are the absolute best to date. This number will increase over time, so be sure to check the Plugin Alliance website for the currently included plugins.Watch the video at the bottom of the page to see ALL of the included plugins in a single video.With the MEGA Bundle you are getting EQs, compressors, limiters, guitar amps, bass amps, stomps pedals, classic consoles, synths, delays, reverb, fx, and so much more.Many of the included plugins are modeled after hardware that costs $5,000, $7,000, and even $10,000 or more per unit!Plus, many of the plugins include something called TMT, or Tolerance Modeling Technology.What is TMT? Simply put, it’s the thing most other plugins that model hardware are missing!If you take an, each channel will have parts that are slightly (and I do mean slightly) different from each other.
Clint Mansell—the composer for Aronofsky's previous films Pi and Requiem for a Dream—reprised his role for The Fountain. The San Francisco-based string quartet Kronos Quartet—who previously performed for the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack—and Scottish post-rock band Mogwai also contributed to the film score. Darren Aronofsky hoped that David Bowie—whose song 'Space Oddity' helped influence the film's space traveler storyline—would record a song when the musical artist worked briefly with composer Clint Mansell during production. Aronofsky planned for Bowie to rework pieces of the score and to vocalize them, but the plan was unsuccessful. After the score was completed, Nonesuch Records, the home of The Fountain musical contributor Kronos Quartet, released the soundtrack on November 21, 2006.
Clint Mansell Imdb
Mansell researched possible scores to compose one tying together the three storylines. He sought to have an organic feeling to the score and explored implementing orchestral and electronic elements that would have 'a real human element to them that breathes'. Contrary to most films' scores composed in post-production, Mansell's score was composed concurrently with the film's production; he created a mood that flourished as the film progressed. The composer described the parallel process, 'It's instinct and listening to what the film is telling you it needs'.
Mansell drew from five to six years of writing material for The Fountain. The composer planned for the score to be pure percussion when the film was first meant to be epic in scale. Mansell, lacking classical training, collaborated with an assistant in creating the score. They deconstructed the composer's initial pieces for The Fountain and re-played them in a key so the lead melodies could harmonically play with every progression. The song 'Together We Will Live Forever' was an electronic piece designed by Mansell to be the protagonist's memory theme. Antony Hegarty, lead singer of Antony and the Johnsons, was commissioned to create a vocal piece over 'Together We Will Live Forever' for the end credits, but the director decided that the vocals would not be appropriate to end the film. The song was ultimately performed by pianist Randy Kerber.

Mansell won the Chicago Film Critics Association's 2006 award for Best Original Score, and he also won the World Soundtrack Award for Best Original Soundtrack of the Year and Public Choice Award. He was also nominated for the 2006 Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score for The Fountain, but lost to Alexandre Desplat for The Painted Veil. Mansell also lost a nomination for the 2006 BFCA Critics' Choice Award for Best Composer to Philip Glass for The Illusionist.
