Random Start #25: Jonny Greenwood – ‘Proven Lands’

Taken from the There Will Be Blood soundtrack, Jonny Greenwood did, in my opinion, an absolutely astounding job on the film score.

With the constant tapping of percussion and frantic, dissonant, pizzicato strings on top, it is poignant and restless. It reminds me of Schoenberg’s work with the 12-tone technique, could I call it ‘minimalist expressionism’ without being hung from the Music Snob’s noose? Whatever it is, it is one of many golden musical nuggets from one of the best films in years. Get the OST because the whole thing is worth a listen.
