The soundtrack for Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me was composed by Angelo Badalamenti and released on August 7, 1992, by Warner Bros. Records. Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me is a 1992 horror film, directed by David Lynch and written by Lynch and Robert Engels. It is a prequel to the television series Twin Peaks (1990–91), created by Mark Frost and Lynch, who were also executive producers. The film revolves around the investigation into the murder of Teresa Banks (Pamela Gidley) and the last seven days in the life of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a popular high school student in the fictional Washington town of Twin Peaks.
Soundtrack from Twin Peaks (also known as Music from Twin Peaks) is a soundtrack album by the American composer Angelo Badalamenti. It was released on September 11, 1990 on Warner Bros. Records and is the official soundtrack to the television series Twin Peaks (1990–91). The series' co-creator David Lynch produced the album alongside Badalamenti and wrote lyrics for several tracks, including the series theme song "Falling". Upon its release, Soundtrack from Twin Peaks placed in several international charts—including the top 10 in Norway, Sweden, Australia and the Netherlands—and "Twin Peaks Theme" received the award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance at 33rd Annual Grammy Awards.
Reviewers rightfully claim that Stalingrad is among Badalamenti’s finest works, and it’s the second best score of all in 2013 according to Movie Wave. Featuring several strong themes, Badalamenti’s score is a passionate journey through militaristic landscapes, romantic orchestrations and powerful action sequences. The film, which opens in the UK and US this spring, is the first Russian movie made completely in 3D and is the highest-grossing Russian movie of all time.
Booth and the Bad Angel was a music project based around the collaborative efforts of Tim Booth (lead singer with the British alternative rock band, James) and the American film composer, Angelo Badalamenti. Featuring Bernard Butler on guitar, the project's eponymous album was released in July 1996.
My (musical) world is a little bit dark. . . a little bit off-center. I think of it as tragically beautiful. That is how I would describe what I love best: tragically beautiful." Angelo Badalamenti
Today's working hypothesis is no composer was ever more important to the success of a television show than Angelo Badalamenti was for his work on the David Lynch televison cult hit "Twin Peaks" (1990-91).
