“The strings section are violins 1 and 2, violas, cello, double basses… Woodwinds like flutes, bassoons, clarinets, oboes. A brass section of trumpets, french horns, trombones, tuba and Wagner horns. Then some percussion too…”
David Locke, a UK-based recording artist, guitar teacher and session musician based, is trying to remember how many layers he, and he alone, added to his 7-minute orchestral interpretation of Angelo Badalamenti‘s Laura Palmer’s Theme and the Twin Peaks Theme. “Then my guitar and bass guitar… and of course the piano and synth pads,” the highly talented musician adds in a message to Welcome to Twin Peaks.
Even knowing all of this, it’s hard to imagine one man behind his digital piano instead of a full orchestra while listening to this vivid tribute. Bravo, Maestro!
If you want to hear an actual orchestra performing the same two songs, definitely give the Danish National Symphony Orchestra‘s version a listen too.
