In 2011 Hazlewood conducted a new live score for the classic 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc, composed by Adrian Utley (Portishead) and Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) in Bristol. Featuring an eclectic group including Utley and Gregory, six electric guitars, members of the Monteverdi Choir, percussion, horns, harps and keyboards, the project has since toured to London, New York, Krakow, Amsterdam, Sydney, Copenhagen, and Lisbon. The music incorporates extended techniques for guitar and voices providing a powerful landscape for this incredibly innovative and moving film about the last days of Joan of Arc.
