Jonny Greenwood – Norwegian Wood (2011)

8th Mar 11 (Tue) Leave a comment

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood put out his most recent film score today on CD… Norwegian Wood.  The mp3 version (out earlier this year) is on sale at the Amazon ($7.99):

The Nonesuch Records PR on Mr Greenwood…

Jonny Greenwood, while perhaps best known for his role as guitarist/multi-instrumentalist in the rock band Radiohead, was trained as violist, Greenwood had begun studies in music at Oxford University before leaving to concentrate full-time on touring and recording with Radiohead. Nonetheless, Greenwood has maintained a passion for classical music that began at least since his teens, particularly the work of French composer Olivier Messiaen. Since the early 2000s, and particularly in 2004 when he received his BBC appointment, Greenwood has slowly been building a body of work in the classical tradition, for groups ranging from string quartet to full orchestra.

Kevin Moore’s Shine (order)

11th Feb 11 (Fri) Leave a comment

If you missed the Kickstarter for Kevin Moore‘s Shine (the score/soundtrack to the Turkish film Küçük Kıyamet), you can now order it via a standard method…

http://chromakey.squarespace.com/

Click the above images to go to the website for samples and ordering info.  It’s limited to 1,000 CDs.  I imagine it will surface as digital only at some point.

I’ve had Shine since late, late December… I dig it.  Definitely fitting more in with movie scores, like Ghost Book (his score for Turkish horror movie Okul), compared to his work with Chroma Key or O.S.I.
