about

"The Laura Palmer Deviations" is the soundtrack to a place both wonderful and strange's acclaimed Twin Peaks audio/visual performance piece "Keys Open Doors: The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer" .

"The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer" as a performance, and "The Laura Palmer Deviations" as a recorded piece, works as a frayed and piercing tapestry between the band and other performers, touching on ambient, contemporary electronic, noise, and of course standard Lynchian sounds to "tell the secret tale of the final hours in the tragic life of Laura Palmer".


Dear Laura,
Laura, Laura, Laura
A ghost of me, you are
For one who did not want to live
You are never very far
As a soul lost deep in trouble
You gave my art a name
But if I did it all again
I might not do it
Quite the same
Pulled down from heavens’ ethers
You arrived to share my life
I instilled your death with purpose
Before you left me with your knife
I take it out from time to time
Run my fingers down the smooth blade
Is my destiny the same as yours
Or do I
Just
Simply
Fade?
My dear, sweet Laura
My doorway into death
Alive and yet not living
In this play
I am your guest
I offered my whole self
In honor of your life
And in exchange
Was tricked quite well
When you rewrote my rights
Fair, you say
Do I not agree?
Your fame
After all
Did rub off on me
It’s not what I wanted though
Had I known
I just longed for a place
And a space
Of my own
But you, my friend
Had different plans for my life
You stepped in out of nowhere
And won’t leave others’ sight
I sit alone now
On this journey of ours
Caught somewhere between
My earth
And your stars
-Sheryl Lee, 2012.
