Clinton Darryl "Clint" Mansell, (born 7 January 1963) is an English musician, composer, and former lead singer and guitarist of the band PopWill Eat Itself.

After the disbanding of Pop Will Eat Itself in 1996, Mansell was introduced to film scoring when director Darren Aronofsky, hired him to scorehis debut film, π. Mansell then wrote the score for the next Aronofsky film, Requiem for a Dream, which has been well received. Its maincomposition 'Lux Aeterna' has become extremely popular, appearing in a wide variety of advertisements and film trailers.

Mansell’s composition for The Fountain was nominated for Best Original Score at the 64th Annual Golden Globe Awards. His other notable filmscores include Moon, Smokin’ Aces, The Wrestler, and Black Swan.

Mansell was the lead singer and guitarist of the British band Pop Will Eat Itself. When PWEI signed to Nothing Records, Mansell becamefriends with Trent Reznor, and he performed backing vocals on the 1999 album The Fragile by Nine Inch Nails.

Mansell’s score for Darren Aronofsky’s π was followed up by his score for Aronofsky’s next film, Requiem for a Dream, which became a culthit. Since their first collaboration in 1996, Mansell has composed the music to every Aronofsky film.
