Jonny Greenwood scoring new film, The Master
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood
is apparently contributing to the score for Paul Thomas Anderson’s forthcoming film The Master
. As The Playlist
points out, Oliver Weindling, founder of the British label Babel, recently tweeted
that Greenwood recorded part of the soundtrack with British jazz group Zed-U.
According to IMDB, The Master is a “1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as ‘The Master’ whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man.” Philip Seymour Hoffman stars as the title character, with Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams co-starring. A release date is set for sometime in 2013.
Of course, Greenwood is no stranger to film scores, having previously contributed his talents to There Will Be Blood, Norwegian Wood, and We Need To Talk About Kevin. The guitarist also recently teamed with of avant-garde composer Krzysztof Penderecki for an album of original compositions.
