this morning a journey into the sound world of David Lynch.  Featuring the sound and music for my film, film sound design and soundtrack of 2007, Inland Empire.  We started out with music and sound from the 1977 film eraserhead from the original LP record on IRS Records (side two track 2 –~ 2 cm in) .  The sound was designed and produced by David Lynch himself and Alan R Splet.  We heard the song In Heaven (Radiator song) with music by Peter Ivers, lyrics by David Lynch and vocal by Peter Ivers. It is in Eraserhead that Lynch’s symbiotic use of sound and image comes into fruition, and sets the standard for his later films.Eraserhead is a surrealist masterpiece and had a strong impact and was very important to many including industrial music artists such as the members of SPK.  The sound is the sound for an industrial landscape.Now more of the wonderful pure sound from eraserhead.Side 1 – 5’(1CM IN )As the sound design of Lynch’s films introduce an extra dimension to what the audience perceives, so too do Angelo Badalamenti’s compositions.These elements are particularly prevalent in Lynch’s 1990-91 television series Twin Peaks where Badalamenti’s score becomes as symbolic as the characters themselves. For decades, his films have explored the darkness inherent in American culture, often through the prism of twisted sexuality and the carefully designed sound and music highlights the visual and emotional images. The Sound and music are always appropriately unsettling such as in night life in Twin Peaks we just heard.And the twin peaks theme at the end of the prog.                                                                                            Track, Title                                                                                          9, Night Life In Twin Peaks                                                                                                           Now Inland Empire.  Completed in 2006 it took 2 1/2 years to complete.  It is written and directed by David Lynch who composed and performed much of the music.  It was entirely shot on digital video, which he predicts will be the film medium of the future.  The mysterious rabbits come from the 2002 film  of the same name written and directed by David Lynch with the tag line: “In a nameless city deluged by a continuous rain… three rabbits live with a fearful mystery”. In My Mind Inland Empire is David Lynch’s second greatest surrealist masterpiece after  Eraserhead. The Music and sound weaves the images together.
