The different disciplines of art have always been profoundly related to each other, but the relation that exists between music and film is especially interesting ––it is that which invests certain emotional “memorability” to some of the scenes. This relation is, above all else, what unites Moby and the legend of North American film, David Lynch.

The interview —which took place in April 2014 as part of the International Music Summit— evinced that they both share more than we might at first think. As a matter of fact, they’ve worked together: the Montana born filmmaker directed the video “Shot in the Back of the Head” from the album Wait For Me, and a large part of Moby’s musical corpus pays an open homage to Lynch’s work.

Moby’s questions during the conversation were —as we’d expect—somewhat unconventional. Almost no question was related to electronic music (taking into account that the interview was hosted by such a festival); instead they were related to personal matters. The two spoke about meditation —one of Lynch’s deepest interests—, fear of death and their favorite food.

One of the most memorable questions, however, revolved around one of Lynch’s obsessions, which features in three of his films (Mulholland Drive, Lost Highway and Inland Empire): Los Angeles.

The forty-eight minute interview, like all his interviews, uncovers an ever-interesting and fresh Lynch, an unrepeatable figure. But, in particular, Moby’s interview stresses the importance and, it goes without saying, the beauty of two artists who admire each other and keep a friendship full of respect and closeness. In few words, this is a session that will overly captivate you.
