Clint Mansell (and Kronos Quartet) – Tree of Life


This is from the soundtrack to The Fountain. I found myself humming it out of nowhere the other day, or a version of the main theme that’s found in “Tree of Life.” In a better world, this soundtrack and this song would be just as popular as Clint Mansell’s oft and weirdly deployed Requiem for a Dream soundtrack. The Fountain, too, deserves better recognition (for the chemical reactions-as-nebulae micro macrophotography alone, you should watch this movie).
