Sundaze 1728

Hello, the Tour De France is gearing up this weekend first mountainous stage was for Calmejan with the unusual male first name of Lilian, oh well it builds character they say and that was what he showed in a deserved win, expect to hear much more of him in the coming decade. The GC riders kept their powders dry for tomorrow's race which contains no less then 3 HC and 5 lesser ascends, reputations will be won and lost tomorrow. Over in Austria it's this weekend F1 race on the Red Bull Arena, unfortunately it doesn't particularly suit their car. Max Verstappen who clearly had been faster as Ricciardo in Q1 and 2, got a yellow flag in when setting his Q3 time., that cost him 6th it is just after his team mate, Raikonen 4th Hamilton 3rd Vettel once again just 2 hundredth's of a second behind, on pole Bottas. Hamilton will drop 5 places because of a gearchange, he qualified in Q2 on softer tires and expects to be able to pitstop 8 laps later, being well in front, well that's the plan but if he gets blocked by the likes of Perez and Verstappen, or gets entangled at the start, Vettel will be over the mountains. Plenty of exitement in sports tomorrow..

Badalamenti was born in Brooklyn, New York to an Italian family; his father, who was of Sicilian descent, was a fish market owner. He began taking piano lessons at age eight. By the time Badalamenti was a teenager, his aptitude at the piano earned him a summer job accompanying singers at resorts in the Catskill Mountains. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the Eastman School of Music and then earned Master of Arts degrees in composition, French horn, and piano from the Manhattan School of Music in 1960.
Film scoring

Badalamenti scored films such as Gordon's War, and Law and Disorder, but his big break came when he was brought in to be Isabella Rossellini's singing coach for the song "Blue Velvet" in David Lynch's 1986 film Blue Velvet. Inspired by This Mortal Coil's recent cover of Tim Buckley's "Song to the Siren", Lynch had wanted Rossellini to sing her own version, but was unable to secure the rights. In its place, Badalamenti and Lynch collaborated to write "Mysteries of Love", using lyrics Lynch wrote and Badalamenti's music. Lynch asked Badalamenti to appear in the film as the piano player in the club where Rossellini's character performs. This film was the first of many projects they worked on together.

After scoring a variety of mainstream films, including A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, he scored Lynch's cult television show, Twin Peaks which featured the vocals of Julee Cruise. Many of the songs from the series were released on Cruise's album Floating into the Night. From the soundtrack of the television series, he was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance for the "Twin Peaks Theme".

Other Lynch projects he worked on include the movies Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive (where he has a small role as a gangster with a finicky taste for espresso), and The Straight Story as well as the television shows On the Air and Hotel Room. Other projects he has worked in include the television film Witch Hunt, and the films Naked in New York, The City of Lost Children, A Very Long Engagement, The Wicker Man, Dark Water and Secretary. He has also worked on the soundtrack for the video game Fahrenheit (known as Indigo Prophecy in North America).

He was composer for director Paul Schrader on such films as Auto Focus, The Comfort of Strangers and Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist. In 1998, Badalamenti recorded "A Foggy Day (in London Town)" with artist David Bowie for the Red Hot Organization’s compilation album Red Hot + Rhapsody a tribute to George Gershwin which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease. In 2005, he composed the themes for the movie Napola (Before the Fall), which were then adapted for the score by Normand Corbeil. In 2008, he directed the soundtrack of The Edge Of Love, with Siouxsie, Patrick Wolf and Beth Rowley on vocals.

Badalamenti received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the World Soundtrack Awards in 2008. On July 23, 2011, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers presented Badalamenti with the Henry Mancini Award for his accomplishments in film and television music.

Composer Angelo Badalamenti is best known as David Lynch's right-hand man when it comes to dreamily and driftily scoring the latter's atmospheric, vanguard films (as well as writing music for their mutual discovery, Julee Cruise). This score for John Maybury's 2008 film The Edge of Love isn't a terribly large stretch, despite the fact that some of the cues call for real period music and actual dramatic tension that doesn't rely on the bizarre. The film revolves around authentic and imagined episodes surrounding the real life love triangle involving poet Dylan Thomas (played by Thomas Rhys), his wife Caitlin MacNamara (Sienna Miller), and his first love Vera Phillips (Keira Knightley). The tension is added to by William Killick (Cillian Murphy), Phillips' WWII traumatized soldier-husband.

Badalamenti composed instrumental cues and co-wrote songs for the score. Knightley performs many of the songs here -- Phillips was working as a nightclub singer when she and Thomas reconnected. She is very convincing as a vocalist, and her limited range is quite authentic, and added to with depth and dimension by her excellent and emotive phrasing. She performs the lion's share of vocal numbers here; all of which are believable and utterly lovely to listen to. Other performers include Madeleine Peyroux, who performs the tune "Careless Love," and Siouxsie Sioux, who reprises the song near the end of the score. Peyroux may be a more naturally gifted singer, but it's Siouxsie's performance that satisfies here with her ability to capture the spirit of cabaret. Patrick Wolf and Beth Rowley also appear -- separately -- on another Maybury/Badalamenti collaboration called "Careless Talk." As previously mentioned, Badalamenti's instrumental cues extend his own reach beyond mere atmospherics and get to the meat and bone of the emotions addressed with such candor in the film. His sense of the dramatic is well tempered, while his subtlety is also underscored here, making for a completely enjoyable score and soundtrack that reach beyond the limits imposed by the screen.

For the soundtrack to David Lynch's bizarrely fragmented 2006 film INLAND EMPIRE, the maverick writer/director himself contributed a number of compositions, marking a departure from his usual musical collaborator, Angelo Badalamenti. While some Lynch tracks are anchored in pop melody ("Ghost of Love"), others, such as the eerie "Rabbits Theme" and drifting "Call from the Past," are more minimalist ambient numbers. Adding to the eclectic mix are songs by jazz icon Dave Brubeck (the sauntering "Three to Get Ready"), alt-rock hero Beck (the percussive "Black Tambourine"), and soul legend Nina Simone (the lively "Sinnerman"), among others, resulting in a strange yet intriguing collection that mirrors the movie's mystifying narrative.

Crazy Clown Time may be David Lynch's first solo album, but he’s far from a newcomer to music-making. He worked so closely with Angelo Badalamenti on the soundtracks to his films and television shows that the term “Lynchian” can be applied to music as well as movies, and his work with acts such as Blue Bob, Sparklehorse's Mark Linkous, and Danger Mouse as a musician and sound designer underscored that he has clear, and creative, musical ideas of his own. He continues to explore these ideas -- plus a few new ones -- on Crazy Clown Time, handling all the instrumental and vocal duties, with one notable exception: opening track “Pinky’s Dream,” which features the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Karen O. A careening joyride of a song, it harnesses Lynch's surreal storytelling and O's breathless wail to thrilling effect; it’s so good that Lynch should consider doing more collaborations like this and Dark Night of the Soul. The second track, “Good Day Today,” is nearly as striking, if only because on the surface, it seems like such a departure from Lynch's usual approach. Its brisk synth pop and slightly processed vocals added to the single’s mysterious air when it was released on a small U.K. label nearly a year before the album arrived, but the way its tentative hopefulness hovers above ominous industrial sounds is pure Lynch. After this pop gambit, Crazy Clown Time gets progressively weirder -- or perhaps progressively more normal for a David Lynch album. “The Night Bell with Lightning” and “I Know,” previously the B-side to “Good Day Today,” serve up the kind of avant-surf and roadhouse blues played at Twin Peaks’ One Eyed Jack’s or The Pink Room, while the eerie “Movin’ On” recalls how the soundtrack to Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me edged away from the TV show’s dreamy nostalgia into much more unpredictable territory. However, the album offers more than just one flavor of eccentricity: on “Strange and Unproductive Thinking,” Lynch tackles everything from cosmic awareness to tooth decay in a vocodered tone that evokes electronic pioneer Bruce Haack; the dark innocence of “These Are My Friends” suggests Daniel Johnston. Appropriately, “Crazy Clown Time” is the most twisted of all, pairing a nightmarish musique concrète backdrop with a spoken word rant that sounds like Lynch reading a new screenplay and voicing all of the characters. Even if Crazy Clown Time isn’t as accessible as some of the collaborations that arrived shortly before the album, Lynch fans will appreciate it as another example of his ability to put his unmistakable stamp on every art form he attempts.

The Twin Peaks Archive by David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti is an album with rare and unreleased tracks from both the television series as well as the prequel film.The counter officially stops at a whopping 212. Two hundred and twelve previously unreleased Twin Peaks tracks. The catalog was initially released between 2011 and 2012 via davidlynch.com. None of the 212 songs were —at least in their full-length form— previously included in the Music From Twin Peaks, Twin Peaks Season Two Music And More and   Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me soundtracks. So much material here covering both the TV series and film. Everything from familiar cool jazz, and percussion shuffles the series is known for, to the deep brooding synthesizer moods and ambiences of the film score. Listening to it reminds me of again why the show impacted pop culture the way it did. Coincidentally, Death Waltz finally reissued its long awaited vinyl release of the original Twin Peaks soundtrack just days ago, and the liner notes have Mr. Badalamenti remarking Twin Peaks as being his defining work, this compilation showing just how great he is at sculpting these surreal atmospheres.Rare Twin Peaks production stills appeared in the background on David Lynch’s website.

There are currently no plans to release Twin Peaks Archive by Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch as a physical album, and they’ve been removed from davidlynch.com. But today, you can purchase download the entire catalog of nearly 10 hours of music as a digital download for only US $9.90 . Here, expect every Sundaze posting to end with 70 minutes plus batch of tracks the coming 8 weeks.
