17 years old and i still don’t know how to properly respond to “whats up?”
Paul Thomas Anderson’s film There Will Be Blood opens with barren mountains and what sounds like a swarm of bees. It’s Greenwood’s “microtonal string music”, and it unsettles before, for six minutes, we watch Daniel Day-Lewis prospecting for oil. The opening ends with the same mountains, noise and weirdness. The duo’s second collaboration — The Master — is even stranger. Rolling Stone says Greenwood is “redefining what is possible in film scores”, but I don’t expect him to agree when I tell him so. “Paul just has his music very loud in his films,” he says. “It’s a dream job for a composer. I was sending him music that was too long, and he was extending the scenes to fit the music. Which is insanity.”
Next month, There Will Be Blood is being screened at London’s Roundhouse, with a live score by the LCO. Bring an expanded mind. Next year, Inherent Vice — the third film this quietly eccentric duo have made — hits cinemas. How does it work? “Back and forth for months,” Greenwood says. He misses it when they don’t work together. The new film is based on a Thomas Pynchon novel. “I was sending him this 1960s pop thing I did, because the film is set then, asking, ‘Is this of any use?’ Then I flood him with different approaches until we find the right one.” One bonus is that he gets to see eagerly anticipated cult films early. “Inherent Vice is funny,” he says. “But there’s a strange, dark seriousness going on throughout.”
um guys so Homyped, sandal and shoes brand, is using Vampire Weekend’s A-Punk as the backsound…
