On 27th October this year, Parlophone/EMI will release a soundtrack album by Jonny Greenwood entitled ‘Bodysong’. At the end of last year, Jonny took advantage of some time off from the band to write and record the soundtrack to ‘Bodysong’, with Radiohead engineer Graeme Stewart at the band’s Oxford studio. It’s a varied collection of music, electronic and accoustic, and features additional musicians in the form of the Emperor String Quartet, and a jazz quartet lead by Gerrard Presencer. Colin plays bass on one track too.
‘Bodysong’, the film directed by Simon Pummell, is a fascinating collage of the experience of being human, from birth to death. The film is dialogue free and is compiled from sourced images spanning the past 100 years. Bodysong the film is scheduled for release in December. For further information and to hear clips from the soundtrack go to: www.bodysong.com.
