Jonny Greenwood is best known as the lead guitarist of the band Radiohead. To date he has penned three “classical” works: smear (two ondes Martenots and ensemble); Popcorn Superhet Receiver (string orchestra) and Doghouse (string trio and large orchestra).

Popcorn Superhet Receiver was written as part of his fruitful residency with the BBC Concert Orchestra. Sections of the score were later worked into his soundtrack for the Oscar-winning Paul Thomas Anderson film There Will Be Blood (2007) – the soundtrack itself controversially declared ineligible for an Oscar as “the majority of the music was not composed specifically for the film.” However, Greenwood went on to scoop Best Film Score award at the 2007 Evening Standard British Film Awards, and Critics’ Choice Award for Best Composer by the Broadcast Film Critics Association of the USA.
