Abstract / Summary

We explore how Lynch makes use of intricate sound design, score, existing source music and music performed within the diegesis to articulate and distinguish the real world geography from the supernatural spaces of the series, and how sonically distinct liminal spaces connect these places within a rhizomic narrative. We explore how the series as a whole makes use of intertextual connections to conventional and experimental film form and how a complex relationship between sound and visuals - and the manipulation of these media - lends an otherworldly quality to The Return and allows the series to further extend established Lynchian worlds.
