My bet (and my hope) is for a new, fully-orchestrated version of "Falling." The heavy use of synth dates a lot of the TP tracks, despite their beautiful and timeless melodies. I'm hoping a lot of familiar themes get an orchestral treatment -- and of course that we get a ton of wild new music from Badalamenti and DKL! But I think the main title needs to be "Falling."
I'm hoping the opposite. I'd be disappointed if they went orchestral. The small jazz band sound of the original is such a huge part of what made it so great and original.
I couldn't agree more! I'd hate to hear Twin Peaks with a traditional orchestral score. The old score and soundtrack is so iconic because it's so damn memorable. I think a lot of it is the simplicity, the repetition of themes, and the small number of instruments. We all remember the dreamy synth, the twangy guitar, the upright bass, the brushes on the snare drum, and the small horn section. That's all I need!
