These two releases have recently been added to the Twin Peaks Archive over at the David Lynch Music Company:
BLACK LODGE BUNDLE
[wpaudio url=”http://davidlynch.com/music/Twin-Peaks-Archive/Dugpas.ogg” text=”Half Speed Orchestra (Dugpas)” dl=”0″]
The final remaining found archive slow speed orchestra cuts are presented here in this ‘Black Lodge’-themed bundle. Although each are only a minute to a minute an a half in duration, their brief run-times are testaments to the ‘building block’ nature of much of this style of music woven throughout the series. Four additional tracks are included: The Red Room (in its stand-alone form), Laura’s Dark Boogie (Clean) – a version of the track sans overdubs that appears in the latter half of Fire Walk With Me, The Culmination – a largely unheard full-length track also known as The Owl, as well as a distant train horn tone-pad used to musical ends in Fire Walk With Me.

LOVE THEME (DARK)
[wpaudio url=”http://davidlynch.com/music/Twin-Peaks-Archive/Love-Theme-Dark.ogg” text=”Love Theme (Dark)” dl=”0″]
After stripping back several layers of Love Theme From Twin Peaks, we arrive at this sparse, ‘dark’ version of the composition. The intro section here has been reduced to a solitary low-register Rhodes (heard below flute in previous versions of the track). Flute then joins the bridge section almost like a single candle in a light-less room…brightening the overall timbre of the track as it compositionally ascends. High synth strings finally arrive in unison at the crescendo, creating perhaps the most intense tonal contrast between A and B sections when compared with other versions of the composition. The result is an unassuming emotional punch that is delivered without the track’s traditional employment of its signature piano.
