I think this statement represents every David Lynch’s fan on earth: Angelo Badalamenti composed for our beloved TV Series a real masterpiece, a soundtrack that welcomes us to Twin Peaks every time we hear a single note. Mystery, horror, irony, fear, romanticism, suspense. All these elements we found in the images and words of David Lynch and Mark Frost are perfectly pictured in that music so elegant, heartfelt, sometimes so dark and sometimes full of light. The perfect companion, music and images created that fantastic atmosphere which went down in history.
25 years have passed, during this long time the music of Twin Peaks it wasn’t still and forgotten, like every masterpiece, influenced and inspired multitudes of artists, giving birth to hundreds of covers and homages. From “Falling” to “Laura’s Theme”, we could find a touch of Badalamenti in many different musical styles.
Following our focus about the covers of “Sycamore Trees”, we’re back with a “Main Theme” inspired playlist. I wanted to do this since a long time, merging ideas with Bob Sinisi we picked our favourite tributes and created a mixtape, released on davidlynch.it and Coumbeat Radio. Bob’s radio station on spreaker is currently airing great music and he has already paid tribute to the Maestro with “Badalamenti Tapes”, an intense playlist about his wonderful career.
Bob Sinisi is a DJ from Aosta (Italy), you may know him for his page: Lynchtown – Twin Peaks Calls, so he’s really into both world, who better could select the music for this amazing MIX PEAKS. With the contribution of another well known geek (Mario De Filippo – Twin Peaks Italian Gazette)
So, welcome to this unusual angle of Twin Peaks , where there’s always music in the air and even if this time it sounds different makes us always falling in love.
It is happening again…
