There’s a large piece in last sundays Guardian film section on Danny Boyle’s Sunshine.

‘Dubbed ‘the ultimate trip’, Kubrick’s psychedelic movie used music by the avant garde composer Gyorgy Ligeti, which Underworld’s Karl Hyde admits profoundly influenced his own work on the music for Boyle’s new film. ‘I’d never heard anything like it,’ says Hyde of Ligeti’s Lux Aeterna, which sounds for all the world like choirs of alien angels ringing throughout the heavens, investing 2001’s baffling denouement with undeniable overtones of religious ecstasy and unearthly transcendence.’
