Jonny Greenwood to Live-Score There Will Be Blood in NYC

Last week we reported that Jonny Greenwood will be live-scoring There Will Be Blood during screenings of the film at The Roundhouse in London on August 6 and 7. Now, it looks like the Radiohead guitarist and composer will be bringing the event to New York City, where he will live-score the Academy Award-winning Paul Thomas Anderson film at the United Palace Theatre on September 19 and 20.

Greenwood will play the ondes Martenot during the performances. He will also be accompanied by the Wordless Music Orchestra, which will be conducted by Ryan McAdams. Tickets for the shows will go on sale next Wednesday, May 14 at 10am ET.

Greenwood has scored a number of films over the course of the last decade, including Bodysong, Norwegian Wood, We Need To Talk About Kevin and Paul Thomas Anderson’s most recent offering, The Master.

Well this looks pretty badass. Hope they tour this a bit. At least major cities. Maybe they can get Warren and his orchestra to do Dazed and Confused

It would be pretty neat to be at this event, I have never seen anything like this. It is a great film and Jonny is a pretty badass musician obviously.

Just have to point out that “live-score” is not a word. It’s not a thing. Johnny Greenwood is going to perform a score that he composed, along with an orchestra. WTF would “live-score” even mean? Is he going to compose the damn thing on the fly and feed pages to the orchestra for them to sight-read at the same time?
