For those interested in "art house films" or video art in general, UBU is a good place to wander and mingle.

Off the top of my head I'll drop Ant Farm, Doug Aitken and William Kentridge as some artists that some might not be familiar with and whose work I enjoy.

David Lynch fans should certainly check out Maya Deren, Man Ray, Philip Ridley, Jan Svankmejer and Salad Fingers.

For those who've not seen this short movie. It's a David Lynch favourite.

Thank you BF!!! 

I'd only come across IMSLP (which I use a lot) and I really appreciate your great suggestions.

Rather off-topic - but this whole thread seems to have gone wonderfully off topic.

And how many folks nowadays can read the title of that surrealist masterpiece and not think about this:

I would recommend Sundance to anyone who's into arty, moody TV - they've really made it their whole brand. They've produced Rectify, The Hohourable Woman, Top of the Lake and have screened the French undead serie - The Returned, I think.

I'm afraid that I'm guilty of dragging this thread off topic, but it's been fun arguing with you - Badalamenti! It's so refreshing when a Lynch fan engages critically and doesn't resort to the knee-jerk reactions of "you don't get art!".

Perhaps Miles Davis, John Zorn, Sun Ra,or Mike Patton are more to your liking. Not sure but . . .  Here's my retort:

Also a Bowie favourite.  He used it as an intro to his Station to Station tour.

Most Lynch fans not being exposed to any other arthouse or international scene is a hunch I've had. I can only imagine how fresh, visceral and out there his stuff must feel if you only watch mainstream American productions elsewhere. It's also a pop culture identity of sorts: it gives you arty cred without actually having to routinely challenge yourself through a wealth of other art films/TV out there.

Whereas I very much appreciate Lynch's gifts and think he can occasionally be brilliant and at his best create incredibly absorbing worlds tapping into your subconscious. He is undoubtedly a genius sound designer. I'm glad that a genuine artist could become so renowned in Hollywood against all odds.

Nevertheless, I view David as just one of the many, many other interesting avant-garde film/TV-makers out there (who don't have the know-how to creating the name/style brand that he has). If you're used to the vibrant and long-established European arthouse scene, Lynch's work falls squarely in the middle of that and doesn't feel anywhere near as earth-shaking. In fact, the consistency of his style creates a sort of cosiness which works against the purposed weirdness. 

The only unexpected, non-cosy Lynchian thing he has done this season is that editing technique he used with the eyeless woman and 'Gotta light?'. It looks like he messed with the 24 frames per second format and jumbled the frames to get that non- chronological sequence of movement happening. Which is interesting and truly 'way out there', but belongs more in a video installation than a TV show even of this arty kind.
