Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood to Premiere New Music at 2019 BBC Proms

Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood will premiere a brand new piece at the 2019 BBC Proms series on September 10 at London’s Royal Albert Hall. It’s called Horror vacui, and it’s set to feature 68 acoustic string instruments simulating electronic sound. The Greenwood-curated “Late Night Prom” program will also include Biber’s Passacaglia for solo violin, Steve Reich’s Pulse, the BBC Proms Youth Ensemble, and more.

Radiohead were recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame with a speech by David Byrne, though only the band’s Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway were in attendance to accept the award. Earlier this year, Greenwood reissued his score for Paul Thomas Anderson’s 2007 film There Will Be Blood on vinyl featuring two previously unreleased songs.
