As usual by the end of every week, davidlynch.com treats us to an exclusive track from the immense treasury that is the Twin Peaks Archive. The Owl Cave‘s background slideshow includes 4 previously unseen stills (see below), and here’s a preview of the actual song:

Although probably a track that would have never appeared among a sequenced CD soundtrack release, ‘Owl Cave’ is a nice repeating mini-motif that surfaces somewhat significantly in the final chapter of the series. Labeled ‘The Giant Appears’ in the archive, it is a good example of the synthesized portion of the Twin Peaks sound. Although many cues from the series were recorded with an ensemble of musicians in a studio, just as many additional cues and even sound ‘effects’ from the show were created exclusively by Badalamenti on synths such as the Roland JX-10.
