It turns out Johnny Marr’s involvement in the forthcoming Inception goes beyond collaborating with the equally legendary Hans Zimmer on the film’s score. Last night, the former Smiths and Modest Mouse/current Cribs guitarist teamed up with Zimmer and a 20 piece orchestra for a live performance of the score, reports The Playlist.
The performance took place at El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles shortly after the film received its premiere at Graumans Chinese Theater in Hollywood. And while the event was a private party, us common folk can relive the concert on ustream.tv. The performance begins at the 53:00 mark. There’s also an interview with Marr and Zimmer at the 50:30 mark.
Inception hits theaters July 16th. The soundtrack drops on CD and digital three days earlier and on vinyl August 3rd.
