CORY STRAND "FIRE WALK WITH ME: A REINTERPRETATION" 3CDr (AOW 63)
I don't think I need to really explain my affinity for David Lynch. Before Altar Of Waste I was making a series of Lynch inspired recordings as Lethe, and I'd like to think some of his aesthetic has carried over into the work I've done since. "Fire Walk With Me: A Reinterpretation" takes as its source material the soundtrack to Lynch's woefully underrated Twin Peaks prequel film and attempts to map out the darker spaces hidden betwixt the gorgeously soothing melodies of Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch's masterful score. Washes of hanging empty ambience are paired alongside severe walls of crumbling bass architecture, culminating in an evocation of violence so radiant it deadens the stars. The surreal has been given leave to wreak its havoc on the wavering pockets of reality Lynch so effectively brought to light with his complex and bizarre series; the music here is my interpretation of some of that havoc. The owls are not what they seem.
