Jodorowsky‰۪s Dune tells the tale of cult filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky‰۪s unsuccessful attempt to adapt Frank Herbert‰۪s classic sci-fi novel, Dune, to the big screen. Composer Kurt Stenzel gives life to a retrofuturistic universe as fantastic as Jodorowsky‰۪s own vision for his Dune‰ÛÒa film whose A-list cast would have included Salvador DalÌ_, Orson Welles, and Mick Jagger in starring roles and music by psychedelic progrockers Pink Floyd. Building upon director Frank Pavich‰۪s idea for a score with a ‰ÛÏTangerine Dream-type feel,‰۝ Stenzel lays out a cosmic arsenal of analog synthesizers that would make any collector green at the gills: among other gems are a rare Moog Source, CZ-101s, and a Roland Juno 6, as well as unorthodox instruments like a toy Concertmate organ and a Nintendo DS. ‰ÛÏI also played guitar and did vocals,‰۝ says Stenzel, ‰ÛÏsome chanting! and some screaming, which comes naturally to me.‰۝ The score also features narration by Jodorowsky himself. As Stenzel notes, ‰ÛÏJodo‰۪s voice is actually the soundtrack‰۪s main musical instrument‰ÛÒ listening to him was almost like hypnosis, like going to the guru every night.‰۝ This highly-anticipated soundtrack LP was sequenced and mixed by Stenzel with the listener in mind and flows through a ‰ÛÏfour-sides‰۝ LP approach. ‰ÛÏI wanted it to play like the records I grew up with, where every side was a journey.‰۝
