The acclaimed British composer is behind some of the most celebrated movie soundtracks of the past two decades. Join him and his band for 'Uneasy Listening: An Evening with Clint Mansell'.
After the success of Clint Mansell’s 2014 tour, which included sold-out shows in London, Manchester and Dublin, he returns to the UK this spring.
Uneasy Listening: An Evening with Clint Mansell promises to be a breath-taking performance of film music from the acclaimed British composer – the man behind some of the most celebrated soundtracks of the past two decades.
Longtime collaborator of groundbreaking director Darren Aronofsky – for whom he scored Black Swan, Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, The Wrestler, Noah and Pi – Mansell has been recognised for this outstanding work with Grammy and Golden Globe nominations, and critical acclaim.
In addition to his work on Aronofsky’s films, Clint is the man behind the music for Duncan Jones’ directorial debut Moon, Jon S Baird’s Filth and Park Chan-Wook’s Stoker. Most recently he has completed the score for Ben Wheatley’s High Rise which premieres at this year's Toronto International Film Festival and is due for release in early 2016.
Returning to the UK to play live, Clint makes his ‘homecoming’ debut in the West Midlands, will perform in Glasgow after having to cancel a show there in 2014, and plays his largest London show to date.
Mansell will perform works from his scores, with his band (Mike Fonte, Clint Walsh & Eric Gardner), alongside pianist Carly Paradis and Sonus Quartet (Vanessa Freebairn-Smith, Kathleen Sloan, Jennifer Takamatsu & Rob Brophy).
