    Angelo Badalamenti has continued to work until the present day but it was his collaborations with David Lynch beginning with Blue Velvet that film music fans most closely identify him with The 33 13 series an imprint of Bloomsbury provides in depth analyses of mostly iconic as well as lesser known albums but so far this is the sole soundtrack Clare Norelli's knowledge of music and her reverence for this genre is apparent on every page And thanks to today's technology it is possible to listen to the cuts while reading the text From the haunting opening theme through all its permutations and even the full orchestral treatment on a symphonic compilation album the music bathes the listener in disuietude As a genre television soundtracks have provided the background to my life beginning with Peter Gunn and Mr Lucky right up until today's astounding West World But Twin Peaks was in a class by itself and whereas I felt the show lost its way early on I never did see the recent episodes from 2015 the music remains noirish evocative at times of Gato Barbieri's Last Tango in Paris Beautiful dissident notes that kind of rub you wrong Has it really been almost 30 years since the pilot of Twin Peaks galvanized us?

    30 years ago last month my life changed Impressionably aged I’d been introduced to what would amount to be my first obsession that didn’t involve professional athletics It wouldn’t be my last; admittedly so I lean towards the fanatical side of things That being said it’s an obsession that remains today having influenced practically every fiber of my being You see I couldn’t get enough of Twin Peaks For a two year period David Lynch’s groundbreaking cultural phenomenon was all I thought about besides maybe basketball so much so my family scheduled vacations around its programming It was the perfect show for me at that particular stage in my life – post adolescence pre teen coming to grips with my own eccentricity – in that it was one that celebrated the offbeat I began talking the same way as many of the characters borrowing their catchphrases taking on unsuccessfully their air of cool and mystery I became all but evangelical in my devotion to the show trying to convert any friends who were willing enough to step away from the Fresh Princes and Blossoms of the world and see what all of the fuss was about And yes I’d also started drinking coffee Such lasting effect vis a vis a television show feels like of a rarity nowadays what with the influx of content coming at us from seemingly every angle offering choices aplenty to be consumed at our convenience Save for certain live broadcasts television is no longer considered “appointment viewing”; one can simply dial up whatever they want whenever they want Increased accessibility certainly has its advantages but I argue it also diminishes the impact of a program When I contemplate whether certain shows would’ve resonated the same had I instead binge watched them Twin Peaks isn’t just a talking point in this discussion; it is the discussionThe original airing of Twin Peaks also coincided with another culturally significant moment in my life the acuiring of my first compact disc player Christmas of 1990 was the most memorable holiday of my childhood; my interests having gone from fruition to fixation made me easy to buy for One couldn’t help but see the joy in my family members’ faces as they presented me with their carefully selected gifts an authentic Detroit Pistons Starter jacket the aforementioned CD player and perhaps most importantly an array of CDs to accompany it No offense to Simpsons Sing the Blues but today only one of those CDs remain within my listening repertoire albeit now in both streaming and vinyl form the soundtrack from Twin Peaks Above all of the show’s influence it had on my personality development it was the show’s music that contained the most lasting effect okay tied with my coffee addiction It was because of Twin Peaks I’d started paying – let alone any – attention to soundtracks and their power to shape particular scenes to build atmospheres to shift moods It was also because of Twin Peaks I’d started listening intently to – and later playingstudying – jazz music It was a vast departure of the popular music I’d been consuming at the time MC Hammer anyone? yet not far removed from the classic rock sensibilities I would find myself drawn to soon after Twin Peaks’ sudden demise I understood the soundtrack’s importance as well as its affect on the show itself; I just never imagined how lasting an impact it would have on me today And so as I once again perused through the many enticing offerings the 33 13 series had to offer you could imagine my excitement in seeing that the soundtrack to Twin Peaks had been included Fittingly enough I’d received my own copy as a birthday present from the very same people who’d gifted me the soundtrack three decades before thanks Mom and Dad also fans And fittingly enough my reaction to it was exactly the same ecstatic That said this particularly submission will not be for everyone In fact it might not be for most people – unless said people have both a love for Twin Peaks and all of its subsidiaries and a rather extensive acumen for music theory and composition I’m one of those rare cases in which both areas eually stoke my fire Credit – and I do mean this sincerely – Australian writer composer and musician Clare Nina Noreli for providing the most abstruse submission to an infamously esoteric collection With a keen sense of musicality and a passionate flair for the dramatic the writer dives deep into each and every piece beyond the 11 tracks included on the consumer facing release Angelo Badalamenti composed for the short lived series their significance and importance to David Lynch’s narrative their themes and variations signaling tonal shifts as fluidly as the waterfall at the Great Northern hotel And if that isn’t nerdy enough Noreli also includes several music charts to serve as visual accompaniment to her precise descriptions of Badalamenti’s score Not since music school had I sight read so much this time around being a far fulfilling endeavor Be that as it may as satisfied as I may have been with this addition I can see how others – notably those who do not read music – may be put off It’s often been posited that Badalamenti’s score acted as an additional character throughout Twin Peaks; Noreli’s account not only proves this theory but asserts the soundtrack’s rightful place as one of its most central figures Many of the points Noreli makes seem obvious once read especially if you’re the type of “viewerlistener” she often refers to one who is just as engrossed with the visual aspect of a piece of content as they are with the aural one guilty as charged Yet go back and re watch any episode referenced – better still any scene referenced – and try telling me you’re not visualizing it differently than you ever had before For me it was though 30 years later my life had changed once again

    I reuested this book because I'm a big fan of the TV show Twin Peaks When I was a teenager obsessively buying soundtracks in order to find new bands I bought the soundtracks for the show and Twin Peaks Fire Walk With Me I was fascinated by the music and the imagery and I still own both CDs todayThe author tried to write this book in a way that would be accessible even to people who aren't at all educated about music Which would be me Although I love music I can't tell you the different notes I don't know what a register is or a bar or basically anything else the author talks about here I can't even pick out individual instruments from a song most of the timeSo clearly some of this book was utterly lost on me Thankfully it wasn't a large portion of the book I enjoyed the recreation of scenes from the show with the context of the music which I admit I never thought too deeply about and discussions about the characters I also liked reading about Badalamenti and Lynch's partnership and the way Lynch described the songs he wanted Just make it sound like wind This book really made me want to watch the series again and the ending got me excited all over again about season 3 I received a copy of this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    Obviously this is going to be a five star review From me? Given my love of Twin Peaks this can hardly be a surprise for anyone Though I'm inclined to go soft on anything vaguely Lynch adjacent there's no need with Norelli's excellent entry in the 33 13 series of works it's a solid entry which offers thematic technical and widescreen views of the sonic doings in that small town in the Pacific Northwest where there's always music in the air Norelli's text is a little bit of a cheat though not an unwelcome one It doesn't focus entirely on the show's soundtrack album because in taking a longer view at David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti's working relationship it shows how much cross pollination has occured how much stuff from Blue Velvet germinated into other projects The book is an examination of the whole Peaks sound world – well from the two series produced in the '90s to the film Fire Walk With Me While this slightly bends the remit of the 33 13 series it's necessary the music across all entries in that world are cut from the same cloth and it's impossible to talk about one part without talking about the whole Though I'm uite a fan of the show and collector of trivia Norelli's book threw up a load of neat facts I'd not previously known including Badalamenti's early career link with synth guru Gershon Kingsley Her description of the way the composer came into the Lynch fold is told well and conveys the simpatico way of working the pair enjoy With plenty of credit given to sidemen and vocalists for the happy accidents that led to the soundtrack's best moments the book is a wealth of geek detail as well as a very pleasant portrait of a creator who's got a thing for the bittersweet I found Norelli's unpicking of the different versions of tunes from the soundtrack – cues songs stings drones et al – and the explanation of Badalamenti and Lynch's 'firewood' way of constructing new pieces from individual isolated tracks to be engrossing and the appendix detailing the use of variations on main tunes as they appear in the Twin Peaks Archive collection uite handy Where the author shines though is in her examination of how music informs the drama of the series' first episode this section is a bravura piece of writing and it unpicks how essential Badalamenti's work is to making the drama as successful as it is There's music theory stuff in here – mostly about suspension and resolution given Badalamenti's propensity to use same – but it's understandable enough for those without specific theory backgrounds The enthusiasm that Norelli brings to the subject ensures that this is a uick read and one that's a shared delight It's a shame that this book came out before Twin Peaks The Return had come to fruition That series – with its notable use of Penderecki amongst other non Badalamenti pieces – would offer an interesting juxtaposition to what's on offer here Of course an update is always on the cards I guess and it would be nice to see Norelli complete her examination of the Badalamenti Lynch nexus in light of this new and perhaps final entry If you're not a fan of Twin Peaks you probably won't get as much out of this book as I did If you've a bit of a knowledge of musical theory though it might serve to intrigue you particularly if you missed the show the first time around But for anyone who's lived and loved the world of cherry pie dwarfs giants and damn fine coffee this is a must

    How could anyone mess this book up?Unfortunately I am probably one of the few people who has never seen Twin Peaks but I do know the soundtrack and Norelli does a fantastic job of explaining the backgrounds of Lynch and Badalamenti's backgrounds the composing of the soundtrack and the influences behind the compositionsThe book also goes behind the non orchestral music and the impact of the soundtrack plus a small update on the Fire Walk with me seriesWithout a doubt this volume is a highlight and also stands as being the most well written one as well Claire Nina Norelli please write a novel

  6. Jim Leckband Jim Leckband says:

    A very uick explanation of how Badalamenti's music was a vital part of the Twin Peaks phenomenon Specific musical examples of how Angelo B created the atmosphere and the correlation to the characters and situations are written out in staff and instrumentation choices described It left me feeling that much in awe of Lynch in how he could create this soundscape by closely working with the composer

    much like the twin peaks revival this was art than i was expecting

  8. Nicholas Zacharewicz Nicholas Zacharewicz says:

    First a disclaimer I am in no way a musician or someone who has a true working understanding of musical theory All I know about music is that if it sounds good to me I will probably like it Discussion of chords and octaves and musical resolution puts me in mind of overhearing people discuss the technical aspects of a language; I might recognize a few of the words they're talking about as words but the concepts involved are things I have yet to graspAll of that out of the way I think that Norelli's book is an excellent guide to the history behind and creation of the most iconic pieces of music in the first two seasons of Twin Peaks It's definitely written in a way that those without much or any musical training can understand the mechanics that are being explained but without a grander context the kind of thing such training could provide Norelli's reference to notes and scales only faintly resonated with meNonetheless if you are a fan of the series and have at least some interest in the role that music plays in it you should seek this uick read out But if you're the kind of person who was not at all bothered by the relatively silent sound track of The Return then feel free to pass this one by

    This volume in the 33 13 series covers the haunting soundtrack to one of my favorite TV shows Twin Peaks Norelli gives a nice overview of Badalamenti's life and career and a lot of interesting detail about how he and Lynch collaborated on the music for the show The other half of the book is a brief informative look at the music itself how it is used in the TV show and the ways in which it sets the mood and tone for scenes and characters Being a big fan of the show I really enjoyed this view of Twin Peaks through its music I just wish the book had been a little longer so that Norelli could have included scenes particularly some of the one that I found most pivotal and affecting

  10. Hernán M. Sanabria Hernán M. Sanabria says:

    Badalamenti's soundtrack features cool jazz classical soap opera melodrama retro teen balladry and everything in between It was a postmodern melting pot of musical genres and an unusually sophisticated outing for a television soundtrack This synthesis of styles added to the anachronistic feel of Twin Peaks; we are never uite sure when the show takes place and the world which its characters inhabit is splintered between the mundane and the mythical Badalamenti's ubiuitous soundtrack also helped anchoring Twin Peaks' oft unhinged narrative supplying a prevailing mood that consolidated the entire seriesA proper companion to a challenging and shape shifting piece of art
