Radiohead guitarist and Krzyszstof Penderecki junkie Jonny Greenwood debuted a new piece of music at the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station in London on Sunday. It’s called “Loop.” London Contemporary Orchestra handled backup duties.
This isn’t Greenwood’s first foray into the classical realm. If you’ve seen Paul Thomas Anderson’s shattering There Will Be Blood you’ve heard Greenwood’s handiwork.
Greenwood’s done other scoring too (full list for the interested among you.) If nothing else, you’ve heard classical musicians play Radiohead transcriptions for encores, or use them on albums to show their “hipness” and “crossover appeal” to “non-traditional audiences.”
Back to regularly scheduled programming.
