Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood is to perform at Camden's Roundhouse in London later this year.

The guitarist will re-create the orchestral soundtrack he created for Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood live for the first time as part of the Roundhouse Summer Sessions on August 6 and 7.

Greenwood will perform with a 50-piece orchestra and will be playing the electrical instrument Ondes Martenot. The performances will also include a screening of the film and the orchestra will be conducted by Hugh Brunt.

The Roundhouse Summer Sessions take place in July and August. The series will include Reverb, a weekend of music curated by Imogen Heap plus performances by Sinead O'Connor, Chilly Gonzales, Ólafur Arnalds, Kid Koala, and others.

Greenwood will again work with Paul Thomas Anderson when he scores the director's next film, Inherent Vice. The guitarist worked on the music for the director's last film – The Master – and signed up to write the score for upcoming crime movie earlier this year. He will compose the score with London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Earlier this year Greenwood has teamed up with Bryce Dessner of The National to release a split album of orchestral compositions. The LP, entitled 'St. Carolyn By The Sea'/'Suite From There Will Be Blood' features Dessner's 2011 work 'St. Carolyn By The Sea' (on which his brother, The National's Aaron Dessner, plays electric guitar), 2012's 'Lachrimae' and 2007's 'Raphael' alongside Greenwood's There Will Be Blood score.
