I would like to identify the soundtrack for the teaser trailer of Roma (2018) directed by Alfonso Cuaron.

Here's a link to the teaser trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp_i7cnOgbQ


The song is "The Great Gig in the Sky" by Pink Floyd, from the 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon. I imagine that album was very influential in Curon's life (as that album and Pink Floyd is for many who grew up in the 1970's). I think there's a connection with that song personally for Curon, and it also is connected with the airplane symbolism in the movie (movie starts with a plane reflected in water on the floor, and the movie ends with the plane flying overhead in the sky). Curon was interviewed and said the plane represents a few things, but modernity and how the world continually moves onwards no matter what's happening in your world. Originally, the song was written by Richard Wright as a chord progression of "The Mortality Sequence" or "The Religion Song".


According to the Spanish Wikipedia, it is Steven Price.
