I am looking for the music in the TV teaser trailers to several of
Peter jackson's Lord of the rings movies. shown in the UK. It is also
featured in connection with the film 'Requiem for a dream'. It is not
the track entitled 'Gothic power', which is the music accompanying to
LOTR cinema trailers. I consider it a great service if someone can
find it. It would make the best ring tone on my phone ever :) only

Additional clue, it sounds like violin, or bass.

I'm glad to have been able to help. I love this music!

Requiem for a Tower

"Requiem for a Tower" is a remix of Clint Mansell's "Lux Aeterna,"
which was originally part of the soundtrack score for "Requiem for a
Dream." Here's a bit of info about it:

"[Clint] Mansell's score for ? was followed up by his score for the
next Darren Aronofsky film, Requiem for a Dream.... The trailer for
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers used a remixed version of the
track Lux Aeterna, re-recorded with a full orchestra and choir. The
song, named 'Requiem for a Tower', was made just for the trailer (it
was not featured in either Requiem for a Dream or The Lord of the
Rings: The Two Towers) and was composed by Simone Benyacar, Dan
Nielsen, and Veigar Margeirsson. As yet, the song remains unreleased,
however numerous fan-made imitations have been created."
