Lynch, Danger Mouse Installation

From Lens Culture:

David Lynch is endlessly creative, and his artistic output is usually quite bizarre and surreal. Lynch’s latest project is as a photographer and collaborator with musician, artist and producer Danger Mouse. Together, they’ve created a multimedia installation that is now on display in Los Angeles.

Fifty of Lynch’s photographs are mounted on aluminum panels that seem to float on the gallery walls, converging with the moody rhythms of the music from Danger Mouse’s latest album, Dark Night of the Soul.

The full DJ Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse(Mark Linkous) collaboration ((There are many other great appearances/collaborations on the album: Julian Casablancas, Vic Cheasnutt, Black Francis, the Flaming Lips, David Lynch, Jason Lytle, James Mercer, Iggy Pop, Nina Perssen, Suzanne Vega)), Dark Night of the Soul , can be heard at the NPR site, Dark Night of the Soul Exclusive.

NPR Music Blog description:

I’ve listened to the record all the way through at least a dozen times, and can confirm that Dark Night of the Soul delivers in every way you’d hope for. It’s beautiful but haunting, surreal and dark, but sometimes comical and affecting, with ear-popping, multilayered production work. It just gets more mesmerizing with every listen.
