“Twin Peaks” returns May 21 at 9 p.m. Eastern on Showtime. Ahead of the new season’s premiere, David Lynch music supervisor Dean Hurley has revealed a strange coincidence from Angelo Badalamenti’s iconic “Twin Peaks” score, as part of an interview with Vulture. According to Hurley, the MIDI notation for “Laura Palmer’s Theme” makes a pair of peaks (read: Twin Peaks). Hurley said he showed a photo the notation to Lynch, who shouted, “It’s cosmic! It’s cosmic! It’s cosmic!” Hurley also recalls Badalamenti saying, “Whoa… this is scary… but very cool!” Check out a photo of the “Laura Palmer’s Theme” MIDI notation below.
In other “Twin Peaks” news, Kyle MacLachlan has added a new track to his “Coffeetime” playlist for Spotify. The playlist—which features Elliott Smith, Jethro Tull, David Bowie, and more—now includes a seven-second track labeled “egassem.” It’s a reversed message, similar to how people speak in the Red Room of the Black Lodge. Hear it below.
