Requiem for a Beat - An Exclusive Remix of Lux Aeterna

Hey guys. Recently I have started my first major music project I have made from scratch: Requiem for a Beat. In essence, it is a Trance-themed remix of the renowned song Lux Aeterna by Clint Mansell, composed for the movie Requiem for a Dream.

The highest version number is the most current release. However, feel free to listen to whichever version you wish on the links provided below.

Please tell me what you think! All comments, criticisms, reviews, and recommendations are appreciated.



I will continually update my progress as I release new versions of the song. The higher the version number, the more recent the release.
