Prehistoric EC - Black Pearls: Words & Music of Twin Peaks

January 19, 2017

Before Eclectic City was a monthly publication a podcast was created celebrating the words and musci of the quirky, weird and influential 90's televison series Twin Peaks.

It started as a fun project, something that was created from sound bytes and music gathered from collections that were available online not long after the internet "became a thing". These files were taken from the tv series and the prequel "Fire Walk With Me". Of course, the majority of the music here was written by Angelo Badalamenti. But songs like "The Pink Room" were purely David Lynch creations. The podcast also includes remixes and alternate versions that some folks may remember.  And then there's Julee Cruise's vocals... Uff!

The order of the songs, their specific arrangement with the dialogue, was something that worked out over a period of months, trying to arrive at some semblance of a chronological or "lynch-ological" order that made the sense. I think in the end, I got it right.

As seemed appropriate, the podcast begins with Agent Cooper, steadfast and in his boy-scout mission to find Laura Palmer's murderer. We openly cheer his fearless dedication, as we fear for his soul. Twin Peaks reveals its secrets, layer by disturbing layer. Before too long fear becomes something both abstract and concrete.

And its name is "Bob".

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