    Folks-
    Anyone know where I can find the orchestral version of Paul Oakenfold's "Zoo York" which plays over the second half of the new trailer for The Two Towers? It's definitely different from the album version on Bunkka.
    A link to the trailer in question:

    The music is from Requiem for A Dream, with music by Clint Mansell and the Kronos Quarter. Pick up the soundtrack, it is one of the best of the past few years!

    Sean-
    Thanks for the info. I also posted in the thread over in movies, but I think since this is more music-related that we should continue the discussion here. Strange that the two pieces sound so identical ( I checked out the clips from the Requiem soundtrack on Amazon).

    At first I assumed Oakenfold had sampled the Requiem soundtrack since his album is the more recent release. However the sample credits in the liner notes for Bunkka do not credit either Kronos Quartet or Mansell. So my current thinking is that they both must have sampled from the same source. The liner notes for Zoo York credits samples from "Sagoo, Indivar & Kalyaniji" (no specifc song title mentioned and "Quarbani Quarbani" by "Bally Sagoo". Are there any sample credits on the Requiem soundtrack?

    Is it truly one of Paul's dittys? It is from Requiem for a Dream, but you wont find it in the film on the CD. It was re-scored and re-orchastrated specifcaly for this trailer from what I have heard (by whom I do not know). Specific for the trailer or not, someone has DEFINATELY re-worked it (beautifuly it must be said) as its no cue you will find from RFAD itself.
    That's really a trailer and a half. Oh my! [​IMG]

    It definitely sounds quite similar to my ears. Here's the Amazon page for Bunkka which has a RealAudio Sample of Zoo York, although it's from the first part of the song, instead of from the very end where the two really sound nearly the same. Still if you listen closely to the background you might notice the similarity:

    I'll try and find a better sample.

    Doing a search on google for "zoo york" "requiem for a dream" reveals a number of pages with people saying that Zoo York is a remix of Lux Aeterna from Requiem. Several pages say it was supposed to be on the Requiem remix album which never heppened.

    Well, that would explain it! Thanks for the info.

    So going back to the original question: Is there a CD out there with the version in the TT trailer? Or would it appear to be an exclusive mix for the trailer.

    Dont know, but for several variations on it, I still recommend picking up the Requiem soundtrack. You wont be disappointed.

    Yep, the Requiem soundtrack is quite interesting, as is the movie. The movie is very dark, but very well done and unusual, if not just a bit disturbing (understatement).

    Oddly enough, Chronos Quartet will be in town here shortly, and my brother has tickets. I may just have to go with him.

    A lot of the sampling on the Requiem soundtrack comes from actual cues from Mozart's Requiem that were fed into a computer and twisted so out of shape that you'd never recognize them.
