Adagio in D Minor

Better known as one of the songs from the soundtrack to the movie Sunshine (which I watched again recently - awesome soundtrack). I listen to this before bed and dream of the surface of the sun...

(deserves a better video than this surely!?)

"John Murphy (born 1965) is an English film composer. He is a self taught multi-instrumental musician who began his career in the 1980s working notably with The Lotus Eaters, Thomas Lang and Claudia Brücken.

Born in Liverpool, England, Murphy began composing music for films in the early 1990s and scored his first hit with Leon the Pig Farmer. Together with former OMD member David Hughes he worked on several successful British movies, enjoying particular success with the soundtrack to 1998's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

Since 2000's Snatch and Shooters, Murphy has been mainly based in Los Angeles. He has produced several prominent and diverse successes, including City by the Sea and Danny Boyle's box-office success 28 Days Later and its sequel 28 Weeks Later. He also collaborated with Underworld to score Danny Boyle's science fiction film Sunshine."
