Lost in all the recent announcements about Radiohead and Atoms for Peace was the news that Jonny Greenwood is planning to release an album with renown Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki. You may recall that Jonny recently took part in a concert event in Poland celebrating Penderecki’s work. It was during that weekend that the two recorded some compositions that will be released in an upcoming album.
From the Sacrum Profanum website:
It will be a fantastic event. Krzysztof Penderecki, one of the greatest composers, and Radiohead’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood, who performed Sunday at the inaugural concert of this year’s edition of the Sacrum Profanum Festival, are recording an album! It will be prepared by the National Audiovisual Institute and released by the legendary American label Nonesuch Records. The record will contain compositions by Penderecki and Greenwood that resounded at the concert crowning Wroc?aw’s European Culture Congress. The album’s tracks were recorded yesterday and today in Alvernia Studios, a studio based near Krakow. The producer of the album is Filip Berkowicz, the Artistic Director of the Sacrum Profanum Festival.
There is no word on a release date.
