On Music: David Lynch, Searching for the Perfect Sound

David Lynch met the HFPA just before leaving for the Cannes Film Festival where he will present the first two hours of his new TV series Twin Peaks: The Return. When he was asked how important is his connection between visual and music, he answered:

“I love music and I say music is a film. You can love many different types of music, but you have to get the right music to marry to the picture, and elevate that and live in that world.  It’s a thinking, feeling sort of thing, sort of an experiment always in a film: what comes in, how it comes in, and how it goes out.  It’s a magical world of music, and I love musicians.  I have nothing but respect for great musicians. Angelo Badalamenti is definitely one of them, and he is the one who brought me into the world of music.”
