Jonny Greenwood Scoring 'There Will Be Blood' Live for the First Time

Jonny Greenwood will revisit the first score he wrote for the movie.

AsĀ Consequence of Sound notes, on August 6th and 7th Radiohead guitarist will perform his 2008 Grammy-nominated score for "There Will Be Blood" live for the first time at London's Roundhouse.

Instead of working the guitar, Greenwood will play the eerie-sounding electrical instrument ondes Martenot during the performances. He'll be accompanied by the London Contemporary Orchestra conducted by Hugh Brunt.

Greenwood and the director Paul Thomas Anderson have spent the last few years giving Trent Reznor and David Fincher a run for their reign as best artist-director collaboration. In addition to "There Will Be Blood" and the forthcoming "Inherent Vice," the pair worked together on 2012's "The Master."

    I hardly remember any of the music in that movie, except for the pounding drums during the oil field accident scene. Anyway, it's an unbelievably good movie and Daniel Day-Lewis gives an amazing performance.

    You don't need to say 'Daniel Day-Lewis gives an amazing performance' , you just have to say Daniel Day-Lewis... and the rest is Implied.

    I thought the score was one of the most memorable parts of the movie. Incredibly unique and ominous for this type of film.

    It would be weird hearing the music without seeing the movie alongside it. The score was such an integral part of the film's mood.
