INDUSTRIAL SYMPHONY No. 1: The Dream of the Broken Hearted (1989)

Directed by David Lynch

Performance Filmed at


In 1989, the Brooklyn Academy of Music approached David Lynch and Angelo Badalamenti to create a special performance to open their New Wave Music Festival.

Taking the title from a collection of his works produced while he was at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Lynch and Badalamenti worked Julee Cruise's music together with various imagery to produce a unique concert performance.

To open the piece, Lynch shot a new film sequence of a phone conversation between a guy and girl breaking up, featuring Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern with whom he was currently shooting Wild At Heart. From there, the dreamself of the heartbroken woman (Julee Cruise) floats through the air over an industrial wasteland singing ballads of love.
