Dutch TV-Guide Interview with David Lynch

Postby Garmonbozia » 27 Jun 2013

So I visited my parents today and my eye caught something on the cover of their tv-guide: 'A telephone conversation with David Lynch'. So obviously I grabbed it, and there it was, a 2 page interview with Lynch!

Unfortunately for you guys... it's in Dutch. But because I'm such a sweetheart, I'm going to try to translate if for you, as good as possible. Don't hate me if I make any stupid mistakes, I know my English isn't flawless (:


----------------

David Lynch (1946), respected filmmaker, transcendental meditation and music. His second album, The Big Dream, will be released on july the 15th. I had the honour to speak to him through telephone, at 10 o'clock in the morning. 'Good morning, mr. Lynch.'
- By Clementine van Wijngaarden

A lot of filmmakers, writers and artists say that if they got the chance to start all over again and would have the talent, they would be musicians. Why do you think that of al art forms, music has such a big appeal on people?
'I don't know. It's a magical medium. It's a lot like film, but without the images, at least not literally, but it does in your head. Just like film it moves in time. And there is something cosmic about the world of music which appeals to the emotions and spirits of people.'

Were you already drawn to music as a child?
'Yes, but I never saw myself as a musician - I still don't. But it's great I ended up in it as deep as I am now. It was Angelo Badalamenti who initiated me into the world of music. By working with him on the soundtracks of Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet and Wild at Heart, I got immersed in it.

What did you learn from him?
'He basically gave me permission to enter his world.'

What do you mean?
'Like the world of music is a building, of which Angelo gave me the key.'

And did you have, in your way, any influence on him?
'I think we always influenced each other. Collaborations are always interesting. The combination of me and Angelo culminated into something special and the combination of me and Dean Hurley, the producer of The Big Dream, led to something else. Creating something together is very important in music.'

Does that also apply to movies, like working together with the camera crew?
'Not really. With film, there really has to be a sender. Of course you have to work together to get the best result possible, you have to get everybody on the same track, but the ideas are very particular and you have to stay really close to those ideas. It's as if it has to go through some kind of filter, while music just 'floats'. Music is more like talking. It's a very different process than making films.'

One of Lynch's finest short films http://www.openculture.com/2012/05/what ... _film.html

Here's the interesting part: Directors were not to stop the tape so everything had to be shot in one sequence. What you see is six sets which the camera moved from and to. It took 15 days to build the sets.
