      @C H I respect that but I would also encourage you to not discredit hans just because he doesn't resonate with you. For example Kendrick Lamar doesn't do it for me. I'm really not a big fan of hip hop. However I still regard him as one of the greatest artists of my time.

    The astonishing thing about Hans Zimmer is that whenever you hear a score by him in a movie you're not like "ah, that's another score by Hans Zimmer" you are much more like "wow, that's an amazing score, let's look who did it. Ah of course, it's Hans Zimmer again. Who else!"

    Dune's sounds and music are so cool because they have that 'uncanny valley' like feeling where something is familiar, but a little bit off at the same time. It's familiar enough that you understand the emotional response that the music is trying to convey, but there's like a perpetual feeling of dread and uneasiness to it too because it is so different. Visually and audibly Dune is just absolutely mind blowing. The only movie that I ever remember feeling that way about was interestingly Tron: Legacy which is funny because the two styles are polar opposites, but both are amazing visually and have the perfect music and sounds to accompany those visuals.

    You gotta love Hans, also his Masterclass is excellent, highly recommended for musicians and non-musicians may also enjoy it. Very inspiring is the good news, but now I feel the urge to run my DAW's bagpipe instrument through my vocal synth then add reverb, a little delay, some distortion plus compression.... I'm also glad he didn't go pure synth and end up with something like the Tron soundtrack, not necessarily bad but I knew he could take it to another level. Not pure electronic, but not purely normal instruments either, where it's exciting is BOTH.

    When I saw Dune, the thing that most impressed me was the score. I was even telling people that I felt the score far outshined the rest of the project, and should get the most credit for making the film as impactful as people found it to be. Very cool to see a bit of behind the scenes on how this was all made. The joy of collaboration really shines through here and is an inspiration to witness!

      @LP.Skates Indeed and there are a LOT of people comparing Dune to LOTR a lot of things are very similar :
      -Non US director that was initially known for indie/ niche films.
      -Source material deemed impossible to adapt to screen.
      -Studio somehow green lighting/financing a very risky project.
      -Passionate team that are doing this for the love of cinema and art.
      -Director that considers the project to be the achievement of a life long dream.
      -An entire team that thinks outside the box together.
      Dune part 2 will clean the floor at the 2024 Oscars like Return of the King interesting that Dune Part2 is scheduled to release almost exactly 20 years after ROTK.

    All those different scores are just incredible. I already loved Dune story, what Villeneuve did is a masterpiece, but what makes me watch it over and over is Zimmer's epic music moments. Those "not bagpipes" when they defend base or that heavy female voice... chilling.

    I enjoyed the score for Dune, and I think he definitely succeeded in making a different and alien-feeling world, but I do think that a little more restraint, and a little more melody, would have served the film better.
    Funnily enough, though Zimmer is known for electronic and more experimental sounds, when he does choose to write in the classic, romantic Korngold style with a lush and melodic orchestra, he's one of the best. The score for Pirates 3 is astonishingly good. I wouldn't want that score for Dune, but a few more moments of melody, and a little less using the score as sound effects, would have been nice.

    "¿Por qué todas las películas de ciencia ficción tienen bandas sonoras europeas románticas?"
    Por eso me parece el mejor compositor de esta generación: sus obras son todas conceptuales en el sentido de que entiende algo que la mayoría de compositores mainstream no; cada película/historia tiene o debería tener un carácter CULTURAL único y distintivo que no solo debe reflejar la fotografía, o los personajes... también la sonoridad. Que crack.

    As an Indian i find it quite intriguing that Zimmer mentions this subconscious portrayal of familiar/unfamiliar places using soundtrack, I never actively noticed this previously but now that I think about it Aliens, Jurassic Park, Star Trek, 2001, etc. Movies feel alien to me cause all the musical queues are European/American in nature, while Dune feels very natural and real to me cause a lot of the musical cues are found in Indian classical music, I had never thought about it that way before but now it makes sense.

    • Leikhani

      It's funny, because it seems like Zimmer wanted to create a non-European alien experience, but because of this it will only sound alien to European music-accustomed ears. Nonetheless, an amazing score & film.

I really enjoyed not having my hand held during the establishment of the worldbuilding and characterization of the cast. However, i did feel extremely drained after the runtime, maybe because i wasnt used to sitting at a film for so long since its been a while since theaters have been running lol. Sick movie

    Zimmer is as humble as he is talented. "We created" speaks volumes. Also the fact he makes so many instruments and help musicians play notes they never knew was possible also shows what an eccentric composer he is. I used to be in the "All Zimmer stuff sounds the same" but who would have known the sheer amount of ingenuity and skill it involved to play wind. haha
