‘Black Mirror’ is a sci-fi anthology series that explores a twisted, high-tech near-future where humanity’s greatest innovations and darkest instincts collide. Composed by Clint Mansell, the fourth episode, ‘San Junipero’, takes place in a seaside town in 1987.
A shy young woman and an outgoing party girl strike up a powerful bond that seems to defy the laws of space and time. The score to ‘San Junipero’ is a melancholic and nostalgic synth-orchestral ambience, which transcends the 1980s setting of the show, interweaving forlorn strings, static-tinged electronica and beautifully washing orchestral pieces alike. Enticing and repeating melodies feature against a captivating
backdrop of graceful strings, encapsulating the on-screen mood perfectly.
Clint Mansell is well known for his previous work on ‘PI’, ‘Requiem For A Dream’, ‘Moon’ and ‘The Fountain’, for which he received a Golden Globe Nomination for Best Original Score, alongside many others.
