I love that Lynch is blending all types of art into this show including music. As a musician myself, it is greatly appreciated. Some of you know that Lynch is a practitioner of TM. And to me, a practitioner as well, the musical performances are a bit deeper than some might suspect. On the surface it clearly signifies the end of a segment. On a deeper level, it signifies coming back to the meditative place of least excitation. In TM, it would be the Mantra. In Yoga, it would be the breath. In sound and film design, it would be called dynamics. In other words, there are a lot of moving parts and a lot of chaos happening. To continually beat the viewer over the head with chaos is fatiguing and doesn't let the viewer create there own vision of what's happening. So once the chaos has run its course, we come back to the music, the mantra, the breath. It allows for all of what's happened to settle in. It allows your own mind to calm down and put your own creative vision on what has happened and what is happening. The latest performance was truly exceptional.

I think he also choose lyrics to match themes very well. The Juilee Cruise Material in Season 1 worked with the story. I think the lyrics in these performances are chosen to amplify themes.
