Black Pearls: The Words and Music of Twin Peaks

February 10, 2012

HIS NAME...IS "BOB"

This is a podcast of a collection I created a few years ago out of admiration for David Lynch's Twin Peaks. The files were culled from the soundtracks from the tv series and the prequel Fire Walk With Me. The majority of the music here was written by Angelo Badalamenti. But some songs, like The Pink Room,  were collaborations with David Lynch. There are also remixes, and alternate versions of songs here. And then there's Julee Cruise's...

The specific arrangement of music and dialogue, was something I worked out over a period of months. I don't know if it's possible to put anything in the correct chronological order when it comes to a David Lynch creation,  I in the end, I pulled this off.

Who knows? I think I'll take another crack at this, now that I've develeoped some actual sound-mixing skills.

I originally published this in three sorter podcasts in 2010. They were published with the following subtitles and notes.

Part 1: “Diane I’ve just arrived in Twin Peaks”

Part 2: “Damn Good Coffee…and HOT!”

Part 3: “I love you Sheriff Truman”

I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I've enjoyed making it. I'm not tired of it yet.

I have hi-resolution printable artwork available for front, back and inside covers with a specific track list and photo collage, for anyone who is interested. Or I might just make it available as a CD already packaged for those willing to pay a minimal shipping & production cost.

Thanks.

Gabe
