Jonny Greenwood – “Don’t Read What Hasn’t Been Baptized by Time”

By jessica / December 13, 2010

Jonny Greenwood last scored There Will Be Blood, which he almost won an Oscar for, except his entry was judged ineligible since parts of it were not composed specifically for the film. Japanese film Norwegian Wood, which is based on the Haruki Murakami novel, is his newest project. Here’s a sample called “時の洗礼を受けていないものを読むな” (“Don’t Read What Hasn’t Been Baptized by Time”), and it’s a delicate acoustic guitar piece. Have a listen. Note: Greenwood probably can’t get nominated for his score to Norwegian Wood either — it includes a previously written piece called “Dogwood.”
