Alt Twin Peaks ST #1: Music For The Convenience Store

By Tristan Louth-Robins on April 25, 2018 8:22 am

I personally loved the Twin Peaks series from 2017. I recently picked up the blu-ray and I've been super compressing the experience of 18 episodes into 3 days of delirium. I'm a huge David Lynch fan and I rate it up there with his very best work - i.e. Inland Empire and Blue Velvet.

Since I'm focusing on a particular theme/object/process for each month, my plan had been to record fencewires with a pair of contact mics and manipulate the recordings. So today I was down at my mum's property in Yankalilla recording a fence wire, which was in very close proximity to an electric fence wire . As I expected, both piezos picked up the periodic electric impulse of the wire, but also picked up beautiful random, scratchy transients. Along with this, you can occasionally hear the wind blow over the wire and the odd pings.

I got home and started pitching down a couple of copies of the recording to create some (dis)harmonies. It sounded pretty creepy and weird and my thoughts drifted back to several scenes in Twin Peaks S03.

So I've taken it upon myself to present alternate soundtracks for four scenes/locations featured in the latest series.

#1: Here's a jaunty little thing for that creepy AF Convenience Store (aka The Dutchman's/where Phillip Jeffries lives).

I loved the new Twin Peaks season as well, and this piece captures the mood from the dark dream sequences really well.
And the track is great on it's own. Looking forward to the next scene's soundtracks!
