The soundtrack for 'The Master', the new film from Paul Thomas Anderson, has been written by Jonny Greenwood and features the London Contemporary Orchestra.
The London Contemporary Orchestra will feature on a number of new compositions from Jonny Greenwood's new soundtrack to 'The Master', the new film from director Paul Thomas Anderson. Greenwood previously composed the soundtrack to Anderson's Academy Award-winning movie 'There Will Be Blood'.
'The Master' stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams, and the soundtrack will also feature several period 1950s recordings from the likes of Ella Fitzgerald alongside Greenwood's score.
Greenwood, a respected composer outside of his work as guitarist with Radiohead, has previously collaborated with Krzysztof Penderecki and composed soundtracks for films like 'Norwegian Wood'.
The London Contemporary Orchestra have won acclaim with their performances of new and challenging works, as well as performing works by John Cage, Steve Reich and Greenwood.
