Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been interested in the film making of David Lynch. The first film I saw was Lost Highway shortly before my teenage years, mostly due to interest in the soundtrack at first. The film itself didn’t really leave much behind for me but it was enough for me to get interested in seeing more of Lynch’s work. The next film I saw was Mulholland Drive. After seeing that, I had become a Lynch fan.
It was some years later that I finally watched Twin Peaks. My only regret is not watching this cult TV show earlier and more often, as it is one of my favourite shows and in my opinion perhaps Lynch’s greatest work. Not that he gets all the credit for it. Mark Frost, the actors, Angelo Badalamenti and everyone else who helped should get their fair share of praise for it as well.
Twin Peaks has served as a big inspiration to me, both directly and indirectly. My latest release, 25 Years Later, is under direct influence from the show and the 2nd time I pay tribute to it. The first time was the split Without Chemicals, He Speaks… A Tribute to Twin Peaks, which I did with Angellis Taliuu and Glimlicht. This time, however, I am working alone.
As before, the main focus point is The Black Lodge, only now we sink further into the obscurity. 25 Years Later includes 6 noisy dark ambient soundscapes, each one focusing on a certain item, being or a place related to The Black Lodge.
