DUNE - an alternative soundtrack

DUNE - an alternative soundtrack

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global ambient chart, 1st in the global soundtrack chart, 1st in the global chill chart and 1st in the global chillout chart.

Anyone who regularly follows me on Mixcloud knows that I am a science fiction dork. So it should come as no surprise that I saw Dune on opening weekend. I loved the film and have been thinking about an alternative soundtrack mix ever since.

This mix is a collection of tracks that remind me of the film. Most of the tracks are fairly new but a few older ones sneak in there, such as the one from Robert Rich & Lustmord, which goes back to 1995. The opening cut is the newest as it was written and produced by my son, who records as Just A Human, a couple of days after seeing the film.

If you see the film, see it in a theater. It's big and loud and really needs to be seen on a big screen.

Tracklist is in the comments.

Cheers!

It's interesting that in most good reviews of the film, the soundtrack was mentioned as being one of the reasons the film was so good. I was middle of the road on the soundtrack. I liked a few parts but didn't like large sections. I was the same way with Blade Runner 2049. That's part of the reason I made this mix, a slightly different take compared to the bombast of the Zimmer score. Cheers!

Replay (2x) soundtrack for my medieval reading. Sound great!

I think you did a great job with this--this isn't just some ambient music thrown together, it sounds like a true movie soundtrack--it's easy to imagine different scenes with the music evoking them. I think instrumental music that would be good in a soundtrack, especially for an action or science fiction film has got to have more personality and evoke settings and moods quite clearly. You definitely accomplished that with this compilation!

Thanks for checking out the mix! I'm glad it worked as a soundtrack for you. I'm never quite sure how one of these alternative soundtrack mixes will work for other folks so it's nice to see it resonate with you. Cheers!

your knowledge of the intracacies of ambient music overthrow the overused, overplayed, oversampled talents of the zimmer in one mix... you are amazing. thank you. not intending to throw tomatoes at the greats, but this highlights the sensitivity and nuance film scoring has misgauged in recent years. this fits like gloves. thanks again, you truly are a rockstar. :)

I'm glad you like these mixes! There are a lot of fun to put together. Of course, the day after this Dune mix posted I found a track that would fit perfectly so I guess I have to do a follow up now. Cheers!
