Sound Perspective

Dean Hurley on Kandinsky and Lynch

December 19, 2018

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dean Hurley, David Lynch’s regular sound supervisor for over a decade, while he was here in Sydney working on the upcoming Sydney Festival event Masters of Modern Sound, where him and other sound practitioners are composing and performing works in response to the Art Gallery of NSW’s current exhibition, Masters of Modern Art from the Hermitage.

Walking through the gallery space we discussed how an artwork creates a musical response, working with the director Werner Herzog, and the collaborative process between himself and David Lynch.

Masters of Modern Sound is on at the Art Gallery of NSW from January 10th-12th; more info can be found at the AGNSW website or
