Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood will do four special U.K. performances of his score to Paul Thomas Anderson's 2007 classic There Will Be Blood in 2017 during screenings of the film. The London Contemporary Orchestra announced the news on its website, revealing that the score to the Oscar-winning film will be performed live by the LCO, Greenwood -- playing an Ondes Martenot, a vacuum tube-driven early electronic instrument that is similar to a theremin -- as well as Galya Bisengalieva on violin and Oliver Coates on cello.

The LCO describes Greenwood's score as "a masterwork of dramatic tension, instrumental experimentation and musical bricolage -- it integrates work by Arvo Part and Brahms."

The shows will take place in London at Southbank (Jan. 30), Birmingham at the Symphony Hall (Feb. 5), Brighton at The Dome (Feb. 6) and Bristol at Colston Hall (Feb. 7).
