Even when benign, an element of horror could probably be ascribed to most of the work of David Lynch. But for those keenly familiar with it, they'd also know it is usually filled with far more uncertainty than true horror. David Lynch and Marek Zebrowski (Polish composer), have teamed up to bring out the depths of this uncertainty in their upcoming re-release of 'Polish Night Music.'
Danish singer/songwriter Agnes Obel is yet another of the fantastic trend of indie-classical crossovers. Her 2010 debut, Philharmonics garnered her platinum status in Belgium and France, received a Gold award in Holland and went quintuple Platinum in Denmark. Agnes cleaned up at the Danish Music Awards in 2011 for Philharmonics, taking home five awards. Her follow up release, Aventine, was written and recorded at home in Berlin by Agnes herself. To wit, her deluxe edition of Aventine features a remix of "Fuel To Fire" by cult classic director, producer, musician, clothing designer David Lynch. Sonically, Obel is unlike many singer songwriters in the sense that she has a nearly complete backing band of strings and a piano producing a celestial escape. Classicalite recently caught up with Obel over the phone before her debut Minneapolis show to gain insight on her technique, David Lynch and her diaphanous music videos.
The uniquely twisted noir-inspired film from the twisted mind of David Lynch, Eraserhead, will receive a new 4K digital restoration from the Criterion Collection. Of course, this come only under the supervision of Lynch himself.
If David Lynch's Eraser were featured on any Film Studies class agenda, the professor would probably have some words about the ethereal soundtrack and the landscape it provided for the underground film. And now, that soundtrack is available September 16 for public consumption.
If you didn't think that the Ice Bucket Challenge could get any sort of, well, "treatment" then perhaps you haven't seen David Lynch get his hands on it. If you know him, then you know this is well-worth your time.

With only two Beatles still surviving, it's near impossible for either Paul McCartney or Ringo Starr to stay out of the limelight. Macca, aged 71, is still as prolific as he was in his 40s, yet Ringo, 73, remains ever more humble and tame (especially since Harry Nilsson died back in 1994). However, it was the strong, near silent drummer who received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Peace & Love at the David Lynch Foundation's gala.
