Electric guitar player Johnny Marr has been in Los Angeles to perform the film score for forthcoming blockbuster Inception.

The musician was joined on stage for the live show at the El Capitan Theatre by composer Hans Zimmer and a 20-piece orchestra, following a premiere of the film, which is directed by Christopher Nolan and stars Leonardo DiCaprio.

Zimmer was originally hired to produce the music for the film and told NME that he decided to give Marr a call to help him out.

"Suddenly in the middle of the night I was sitting there writing this little tune and I go 'Woah - this would sound really good if Johnny Marr played it'," he explained.

The soundtrack was made available on Tuesday this week (July 13th 2010), with the film set to come out on general release this Friday.

Earlier this year, Marr – who has been in The Smiths, Modest Mouse and The Cribs over the course of his career – was handed an Inspiration Prize at the Ivor Novello Awards.
