This show is dedicated to the genius of David Lynch. I’m a long-time fan of this director and my fascination became even stronger after reading his (auto)biography A Room To Dream. His art matures together with you and you keep noticing new details with every rewatch of his films. But despite being known for his cinema, Lynch is also famous for his vast musical output, some of which sometimes goes a bit beyond the radar.

This episode compiles records created, inspired or produced by Lynch as well as some of the soundtracks from his movies. Hope this will help you to see his magical artistic world from a bit different perspectives. I tried to focus on more lesser known pieces to showcase the diversity of his music. The high point of this selection is his ecstatic and wonderful collaboration with Jocelyn Montgomery in which they perform pieces by Hildegard Von Bingen, a 12th century Benedictine abbess, mystic, composer and philosopher. It is a deeply touching spiritual music and definitely one of the best releases ever!
