oh yeah

I say it once and forever - THE PROPHET LIKE PERCUSSION no matter what kind (i like percussionists too) and thats why this is my fav remix on the site (with Megaman Circuit Breaker, of course). Atmosphere is great, and I love the tuned xylophonery throughout the middle section. Great job Bart!

Bart did excellent work capturing the desert/sci-fi atmosphere of Dune. One of my favorites.

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)

Not just several other games, Frank created all music for Westwood Studios and their games during the 1990s.

FYI, the original Dune video game music was not created by Frank Klepacki. Exxos (Stéphane Picq and Philip Ulrich) of CRYO Lab Studios are the true artists (Westwood had nothing to do with this game; CRYO were the developers).

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 :P).

I've heard the Spice Opera soundtrack. It's crap and not nearly as pleasing to listen to as the original "cheap MIDI" versions.

This remix, on the other hand, is very nice and has the spirit of the original imo.

Very cool. I never played the games, but I have read the books and seen the movie. This does indeed invoke imagery of the Dune universe. Good job.

Percussion on this is super catchy and carries the piece pretty decisively. The melody is very subtle, but to be totally honest, there really isn't much room in here for a melody with all the rhythm madness going on. Synths are pretty decent, but unremarkable in general, as they are only prominent at the beginning, where they set up a wide, expansive soundscape.

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.

Those D Dd d d Drums

Defintinely the kind of mix that transports you. I can't decide whether it's more evocative of dune or jungle crossing tho'.
