Xiu Xiu | Rewire Festival

Xiu Xiu

David Lynch’s 90’s TV series, Twin Peaks, has built up a cult following, with people even today discovering the show for the first time. Part of Lynch’s charm is his ability to capture a feeling with such small detail – visual or audio. As part of an exhibition on Lynch at The Gallery Of Modern Art, Australia, Xiu Xiu – a band experienced with reinterpretation – were commissioned to tackle the infamous soundtrack. They remembered the first time they watched the show, when they next watched it, the characters, the two worlds, the way they emphasised chaos and drama in the sounds, their creative process, influences, and how they play a forest field recording into the room of a performance.
