Real Old School Nr. 03: Johnny Greenwood and the London Contemporary Orchestra

Real Old School
Classical Music Worth Curating

  • Is it cheating if I feature one of my favorite rock musicians in this “Real Old School” series on classical music?
    • I don’t think so
  • Radiohead guitarists and multi-instrumentalist savant Johnny Greenwood has been dabbling in classical composition for a while. And, he is very good at it.
    • His soundtrack for There Will be Blood should have won an Academy Award, but was disqualified on a technicality. He also scored The Master. Haunting Stuff.
  • Here he is with the London Contemporary Orchestra performing some new and old stuff at the Royal Albert Hall.
    • It is on a “live” loop, so just hit play and let it go in the background.
  • In quasi-related news, Radiohead are reportedly in the studio right now recording.
