Now Playing Tracks

Black Swan’s score was composed by Clint Mansell and conducted as a play on Tchiakovsky’s original theme. To come up with his eerie take on it, Mansell played it backwards. (This is also how John Lennon came up with “Because,” by having Yoko play the chords of “Moonlight Sonata” in reverse.) If the musical vibe of Black Swan is familiar to you, it’s because Mansell also did the memorably haunting score for Requiem for a Dream, as well as all of Aronofsky’s films. (source)
