05The First Time With David Lynch20131013

A new series of The First Time returns to 6 Music as part of the BBC's Sound Of Cinema season with probably the most distinctive, original and disturbing filmmaker in the history of modern cinema, David Lynch.

World famous as a filmmaker, writer and television director as the creator of Twin Peak, Blue Velvet, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead and Wild At Heart, Lynch is also a musician, having helped create the music for many of his movies (he wrote the lyrics to the Twin Peaks theme - Falling sung by Julee Cruise) as well as solo albums like this year's The Big Dream - a record as hypnotic and disturbingly beautiful as his films.

In a very rare interview he speaks to Matt Everitt about his formative early musical influences (Chopin and the sound of B36 bombers flying over his childhood home apparently) his passion for Elvis and early rock n roll, directing David Bowie, his love of jazz, how he creates his own unique music and how the imagery and plot of his classic film Blue Velvet was directly inspired by Bobby Vinton's 1963 classic single.... Which would never sound the same again.
