Jonny Greenwood 'Boiler Room Session' (ft. London Contemporary Orchestra) (live video)
Published Nov 26, 2014Radiohead have reportedly been working on a new album, but guitarist Jonny Greenwood is also busy with his career as an orchestral composer. Back in October, he performed with the London Contemporary Orchestra at Manchester's Royal Albert Hall, and now the performance can be seen via the Boiler Room.
The concert is streaming on a continuous loop for the next 72 hours. It features selections from his film scores, material written by others, and even a new piece.
The concert was a rather unusual one as far as classic music goes, in that there was no assigned seating and attendees were free to move around the room. There was even an interactive portion using mobile phones during "Self Portrait with Seven Fingers."
In a statement, Greenwood said, "I felt really high afterwards. Lots of things just seemed to work. Not necessarily the pieces, but the idea of playing them like that. What was good — all these little four or five minutes pieces, and all this faffing around in between, it allowed the audience to talk to each other."
Watch the performance below.
