The Air Is On Fire

David Lynch

compact disc


A stereo version of the multi-channel sound work composed for the exhibition of the same name.


Separated from the exhibition this billowing, cinematic soundscape carries with it the spirit of all Lynch's films. Successive layers of sound tear and separate revealing ever more distant aural vistas. The irresistibly cinematic character of this work inevitably evokes a heady fusion of images and events both from Lynch's own cannon and the more general history of film.
