The highly anticipated documentary Jodorowsky’s DUNE, described as “the story of the greatest science fiction movie never made”, features an analog synthesizer laden soundtrack by composer Kurt Stenzel.
In addition, the soundtrack features 5 tracks by SpacEKraft, a duo made up of Stenzen & Edward Dahl, who co-pilot space travel themed multimedia events.
Jodorowsky’s DUNE tells the story of filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune. Jodorowsky enlisted an elite group of artists, including French comic book artist Moebius; screenwriter Dan O’Bannon (DARK STAR, ALIEN); artist H.R. Giger (ALIEN); and sci-fi paperback illustrator Chris Foss. For the cast, he lined up icons ranging from Salvador Dali and Mick Jagger to Orson Welles.
Jodorowsky’s version of Dune was never made, but the documentary looks at the way it ‘planted seeds’ for many iconic science films that came after it, including Star Wars & Alien.
Here’s the official preview for the film:
Stenzel created the soundtrack for the documentary with a myriad of analog synths and effects.
At this point, it doesn’t appear that a soundtrack album is available. You can listen to the 5 SpacEKrafT below:
“Director Frank Pavich has created a wonderful documentary that tells this story in an interesting, funny, sad, yet inspiring way,” notes SpacEKrafT’s Edward Dahl. “Support art, film and music and go see this movie while it is still in theaters!”
