This release started as sound design for a Dune Trivia App for iOS and Android that tests your knowledge of the original book. It resulted in 3 stages/tracks of instrumental music. Elements from each were used within the app.
A bit about my inspiration. Track 1: "The View From Here" felt like that inspiring feeling of hope that one might feel looking out on a beautiful landscape.
Track 2: "Horizon" starts where the mind sort of blurs, day dreams. Land and sky become one. Something is mounting though.
Track 3: "Tension - "Results In Beauty" Like what we are experiencing in the world now, we feel weight. That weight comes and goes. Deep anxiety. When it clears there is that moment of thankfulness for the things around you. Family, love, food on the table, a roof over our heads. Then we start again with another view.
Most of the sounds were created on the fly with an analog drum machine, a guitar and ran through guitar pedals. Listen close for pedal buttons and knobs switching. Synths drifting in and out of tune and time. I did not fix anything in the performances.
I recommend you check out the wonderfully designed app and get your Dune facts straight. Details available at dunetrivia.app
. Please listen on real speakers or headphones. Not your phone.
