Overview

Dune was never going to be an easy film to score. Dense, overreaching, and confusing, David Lynch's interpretation of the canon of Frank Herbert surely didn't leave many stylistic decisions strolling in through the front door. Yet despite the soft rock pabulum of its past, Toto constructed a luxuriant and peculiar soundtrack that injects Dune with a barren majesty the film often failed to create on its own. The Vienna Symphony Orchestra lends these peculiar compositions a much-needed precision. Brian Eno helps out with the haunting synth hymns of "Prophecy Theme." Remarkably, Dune is perhaps the only Lynch film where one could not wish the discovery of Angelo Badalamenti to have come sooner. Equally prescient horror and throwback to Hollywood epics of old -- there is nothing else to imagine but the organic, spiritual futurism of the film itself.
