TLD was conceived after watching films from groundbreaking directors such as Wim Wenders, Jim Jarmush, David Lynch, Wes Anderson, Sofia Copolla and many others. I have always been obsessed with movie soundtracks; some time ago, it occurred to me it would be great to mix up my favorite soundtrack tunes into one big personalized soundtrack to the movie that is called life. After painstakingly digging up songs from the archives, a selection was made and I started mixing them into a narrative. Then I spliced in quotes and snippets from more films and layered the whole thing using lots of delay and reverb effects. The guys at The New Worck were kind enough to premier it on their brand spanking new site. Listen to David toying around with his mic, imagine Dustin being harassed and be reminded that that gum you like is going to come back in style.

This little book by artist and director David Lynch is about (transcendental) meditation, although most of his films are mentioned in short. It reminds me a bit like the Tao, with short one or two-page chapters built around a single theme.
