Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood’s score for the upcoming film The Master is available to stream in its entirety below via Spotify. The soundtrack is introspective and dark; chock full of chaos and discordance, but with delicate melodies that float above all that. Greenwood’s haunting score is for the most part fairly minimalist. With sparse instrumentation and limited vocals the soundtrack is steeped in an unsettling sense of mystery. In spite of its minimalism the music truly showcases Greenwood’s musicianship. Highlights include “Able-Bodied Seamen,” “Atomic Healer,” and “Application 45.”
This is Greenwood’s second time working with director Paul Thomas Anderson, having previously scored 2007’s There Will Be Blood. The Master starring Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Amy Adams is scheduled for release on Sept. 14.
