OCR00060 - Dune 'Arrakis (Wormsign Mix)'
Posted 13 May 2002 - 06:11 AM
This mix starts out nice and smooth. Pleasant sounding electric strings lead way into some funky tribal percussion. After a bit the percussion starts to jam. But the funky tribal percussion stays with the song until nearly the end. Good mix from Bart!

were breathtakingly awesome. I recently rediscovered the old PC-CDROM
version in my attic... so I threw together an old Pentium 75 box to play
it on. (: Ahh the magic of retroware titles. This mix is so great, it makes
me smile to listen to it. The original definatly captures that 'Dune' feel..
sort of exotic/tribal but with a modern hint or two. The remix is all that
and a bit more.

Definitely one of the most dramatic remixes I've EVER heard!
Nice Dune feel too... it brings back memories of me pumping out heavy tanks and missile launchers against a horde of Ordos troops! AWESOME.

I wasnt too sure about the hits at first...the ones that play as the strings do their bit, but they seem to have grown on me...or gone away before I grew to hate them.
The first time the precussion comes in it seems to be in a different dimension to the rest of the remix...a little reverb would fix this right up. Though when the song speeds up, the drums are fine.
The melody (played on something that reminded me of a flute...and later on string like instruments) could do with being a bit louder...the drums seem to engulf it and it gets lost in the rhythms.
I have to say my favourite parts of the remix are when whatevers going on in the foreground has the synths to accompany it...cause they give it that little extra oomf of atmostphere, y'know?
I recommend to anyone...I havent played the dune game (yet) and I still think its a really good remix, so Id recommend it to anyone who;'s loking for something to chillout ot but a little upbeat at the same time...study music comes to mind.

Funny side-note: Klepka sounds a bit like Klepacki, don't it?
(Frank Klepacki composed the original Dune music, along with several other Westwood games)

The rare official soundtrack 'Dune: Spice Opera' has become quite valuable, and for a good reason besides its very limited run packaged in a 'special edition' of the game. You can find it in MP3 form at … well, it used to be easy to find but now you'll have to trawl the P2P system (or Google a bit harder than me ).

The mix never seems to grow past a certain point though. Once everything gets built up, it doesn't shift much, and I think it could build even further. I also think the ending could have been a bit more elegant in it's execution; a more defined ending would have suited the piece, or better still, a breakdown of elements going back to the sparse synths. I think that would complete the feel of traveling through a desert.
