David Lynch breaks down Twin Peaks soundtrack in new interview

David Lynch recently revealed his techniques for working on the soundtracks for ‘Twin Peaks’ and shared his all-time favourite artists.

The long-awaited third season of the show came to its conclusion last month. However, Lynch appeared on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Electic to promote his second Festival Of Disruption.


Lynch spoke about how he knows what songs feel right for each episode: “Depending on how things have been going [in the episode] certain songs feel correct. I feel really good about each one of them and how they found their place.”

It’s so beautiful, it’s a magical thing this world of music.”
