  1. Not too tricky, but you'd still need to specify further. For example, if you decide on complexity in sound, are you talking density of notes? The degree of dissonance? etc. If you're talking about complexity in application, are you talking about split-second timings within scenes? The level of organic quality in relation to the sound effects? The thematic diversity and use? The more abstract, symbolical, visceral depth of music in certain scenes? etc. Just saying that one piece is more "complex" than the other without specifying further, will you get you nowhere fast.
  2. The 90s called; they want this discussion back! Seriously, though, even if the topic is still relevant, it's been discussed so many times now, that I often hear from composers participating in panels I host that they'd rather steer clear of the topic altogether. Which is fine by me, because I've kinda tired of it too.
  3. Yeah, the music in the orb sequence was great. Sounds more like Badalamenti than Lynch in this case. In fact, not that far removed from the gorgeous music Badalamenti wrote for the film GOLD COAST two years ago.
  4. I don't necessarily agree that they are pointless, but it's a very different and new kind of aesthetic that we must accept; a different take on the aural landscape that isn't necessarily the same as the old series and film. But like we discussed awhile back, I -- too -- miss some Badalamenti music in the more comical moments, at least. Glad you've started the show! Looking forward to your comments as you try to catch up to the rest of us.
  5. That was the whole point-of-departure for the earlier discussion -- there are any number of ways to define 'intellectual music' (or 'complexity', to be more precise), in sound, application, structure, you name it. One needs to decide on a common parameter first, in order to have any kind of meaningful exchange.
  6. So two seasons spanning 6 years? I would feel let down if it didn't finish off as a bridge to BREAKING BAD.
  7. Ha, ha....I wouldn't put it past Lynch.
  8. More notes to play, unquestionably. But it stops there.
  9. Love Phil Collins! Also love Peter Gabriel, and all versions of Genesis!
  10. Bob is certainly not dead, I think. If he has indeed been removed from Evil Coop, I'm guessing he's floating around somewhere (after all, he also moved around as an owl in the original seasons, LADYHAWKE-style). Of course, whether he takes the Frank Silva form again, is unknown. I'd like for the CGI wizard to make one more stunning rendition of Silva as BOB.
  11. Well, 'blatant ripoff' is still subjective. Only on very few occasions have I bought into the 'blatant ripoff' thing without actual confirmation from the production sources, like -- say -- the Bates/Goldenthal/300 ordeal (I assume this was confirmed later on, in the trials) or Horner/Gayanneh/ALIENS (I don't think this was ever confirmed from inside sources, but it seems obvious).
  12. Me too, untill the third season where it's been expanded into all kinds of cosmic spaces, and everything inbetween.
  13. No, I was more thinking that if the Black Lodge is considered a form of wider "Hell" (going back to the beginning of time), then whatever mythological spaces are relevant in TWIN PEAKS (like the Red Room) were being created in this episode.
  14. That's the problem with these threads. 90% of the time, it's just fans speculating based on some similarity they hear (that may be more or less farfetched/coincidental). Very rarely is there actual confirmation of which tracks were used as temp.
