Published Oct 22, 2015It's going to be a couple of years before David Lynch releases his memoirs and the Twin Peaks reboot, but vinyl-minded fans will be able to grab a piece of memorabilia by year's end via an upcoming reissue of his Polish Night Music collaboration with composer Marek Zebrowski. Sacred Bones issues a double LP on November 13.
A press release notes that the collection had initially been delivered in a limited-edition CD run in 2008 via the David Lynch Music Company. This, however, will be the first time the music arrives on vinyl. The reissue will feature all four compositions from the original release and come packaged with a bonus download of four concert pieces that come under the name Live at the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland.
It's explained that Lynch and pianist Zebrowski had met at Lodz, Poland's Camerimage Film Festival and first began working together when Zebrowski acted as a translator on Lynch's 2006 film, Inland Empire. They later realized that they "shared interest in musical experimentation and improvisation," with the filmmaker inviting Zebrowski over to his Los Angeles home to start making music. Polish Night Music is said to conjure images of "barren train stations, Polish factories at night, and silent hotels where lonely travelers meet."
"[Poland] is a landscape that continues to remain at once familiar and completely alien to me," Zebrowski said in a statement. "Every time I am there, I am surprised by some- thing, and I think for David, Poland certainly represents the process of discovery."
