Massive rework of David Lynch's mindfucking doppelganger masterpiece "Mulholland Drive."  As with all of Lynch's work, the soundtrack here is killer, but for me this is one of the absolute best, a deep and emotional journey through horror and eros, meeting in the void where the two at last intertwine.  Very few people could title a track "Mountains Falling" and have the music live up to the imagery, but Lynch (as one half of Blue Bob on that particular track) does-the earth will crumble over the course of that track.  Worlds can fall apart.  Having Angelo Badalamenti on board is just the icing on the cake-pure audio melodrama, enthralling, gorgeous, dnagerous, and unknown.
In working with this score, I've gone all drone-seriously deep, thick, heady drone, to complement the film's preoccupation with epistemology and identity.  Many of these tracks eschew melody in favor of tone, but there are my usual moments of austere loveliness and frigid beauty buried down in the dark hearts of the tracks.  Many of these pieces are taken past 30 minutes, to provide as immersive and transcendent an experience through sound as the film provides through imagery.  I am very proud of this collection.
Packaged in a twin-volume DVD case (doppelgangers!) in a limited edition of 5 hand-numbered copies.  $65 ppd. in the United States, $78 rest of world.
