Radiohead Star Scores Film

(Gibson) When guitarist Jonny Greenwood hasn't been busy enough with his duties in Radiohead, he has also served as composer-in-residence for the BBC Concert Orchestra. Sections of an orchestral piece Greenwood first performed and recorded with that group, "Doghouse," are now slated to become the primary themes of a film score for Norwegian Wood, a feature film based on a novel by Haruki Murakami.

"I wrote this piece mostly in hotels and dressing rooms while touring with Radiohead," Greenwood told Film Score Monthly. "This was more practical than glamorous lots of time sitting around indoors, lots of instruments about and aside from picking up a few geographical working titles, I can't think that it had any effect where, on tour, it was written.

There's supposed to be a theme (or at least a source of inspiration) in music like this, but it's hard to pin down." more on this story
