Light In the Attic Line Up Tangerine Dream-Like Score For Jodorowsky’s Dune

Light In the Attic’s Cinewax imprint has confirmed the Tangerine Dream-like Jodorowsky’s Dune soundtrack for a November 6th release. Featuring liner notes by composer Kurt Stenzel and a “cosmic swirl” pressing limited to just 1,000 copies, the album is meant to be heard like one—spread over four distinct sides and unfolding like a film itself.

“I wanted it to play like the records I grew up with,” explains Stenzel, “where every side was a journey.”

In case you missed its low-key release last year, Jodorowsky’s Dune is director Frank Pavich’s documentary about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s failed attempt to adapt Frank Herbert’s cult sci-fi novel Dune. Believe it or not, the film was supposed to feature music from Pink Floyd and Magma, set and character design from H.R. Giger (pictured above),and appearances by Salvador Dalí, Orson Welles, Gloria Swanson, David Carradine and Mick Jagger.

The way Stenzel sees it, “Jodo’s voice is actually the soundtrack’s main musical instrument–listening to him was almost like hypnosis, like going to the guru every night.”

Sample one of those songs down below, right alongside the film’s official trailer. Stenzel’s synth-glazed score can also be pre-ordered here.
