While we all wait for Radiohead to figure out what they’re doing with their newly recorded batch of songs, Jonny Greenwood is flexing his composer muscles. As Gigwise points out, the Radiohead guitarist presented his recent piece entitled “smear” at London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall on October 6. It was performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra and will air on BBC 3 on November 19 at 7 p.m. UK time. The concert, which was hosted by Jarvis Cocker, also featured a preview of an opera written by Goldfrapp’s Will Gregory.
On October 18, Greenwood will appear with other composers at London’s Royal Albert Hall for the benefit Concert for Care, according to NME. And Greenwood’s piece “Doghouse” gets its U.S. premiere as part of the Wordless Music Series on May 20 and 21 at the New York Society for Ethical Culture.
