Well, many have been talking about the use of Penderecki in the, frankly, mindblowing 8th episode of ‘Twin Peaks: The Return’. However, Penderecki has been used with devastating effect in film before; most notably when Friedkin used him for ‘The Exorcist’, or when Kubrick did the same for ‘The Shining’. In fact, both of the films mentioned featured this spine tingling masterpiece. This track travels some in it’s 10 minutes; although every corner it takes you too is as terrifying as the last. The piece begins quietly, and after a period of barely heard rumbling the track builds and builds until the listener is in the eye of the skin-crawling storm. Then you get onto the plucking; which stumbles into a section that approaches bombast.
