Once more for the locals...
One of my all-time favorite directors David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Lost Highway, Mullholland Drive) will be showing original artwork he created for the upcoming album Dark Night of the Soul, featuring music by Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse. The album features guest vocals from: Julian Casablancas (The Strokes), Iggy Pop, Jason Lytle (Grandaddy), Wayne Coyne (The Flaming Lips) and many more.
The exhibition opens this saturday (May 30th) at Michael Kohn Gallery
in Los Angeles and will consist of a two-room installation designed by Lynch and Danger Mouse that will allow visitors to experience the artwork and music at the same time.
Lynch is planning to mount some 50 of the photographs he created for the album on aluminum panels positioned around the gallery. Selections from the album (which will be released this summer) will play throughout the installation.
The director's photographs will also be published in a book to be released along with the album. If his photos are anything like his movies, we can expect a lot of mysterious blonds, red curtains, eccentric dwarfs and references to small-town American life.
You can stream the album in it's entirety over at NPR
