Mantra is the new piece from Los Angeles-based neoclassical composer Reza Safinia. Though the name may be unfamiliar, you might have heard his music before on the soundtrack to the 2014 film adaptation of Stephen King’s Mercy or the 2016 Nicolas Cage film The Trust.

Mantra is a track that combines a looping piano melody with electronic elements to create something a little otherworldly. The music is juxtaposed to the nature imagery that make up the accompanying video, making it seem like our world is something alien.
Reza’s music has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Destiny’s Child, Dr. Dre and Britney Spears. You can count us as part of his fanbase. Check out the video for Mantra below. It’s taken from his new album Yin which is out on 12 March.
