Behind the scenes[]

  • Composer Hans Zimmer wanted to avoid retreading elements of the music from previous screen adaptations. An early decision was the extensive use of various vocals in the film score, primarily female vocals. Zimmer used Middle Eastern associated instrumentation more sparringly, and augmented it with the use of electric guitar, and even some new instruments he developed purely for help with composing the film's music. Zimmer's own statement on the philosophy behind the score was to evoke music and soundscapes that have a hint of the familiar or historial, but otherwise sound like something that could represent a human society many millennia in the future.
  • The film's music also focuses less on distinct leitmotifs for any individual characters, and more on themes and leitmotifs that evoke a mood or sense of place for a particular location, or a particular faction or group of the Dune universe and their place in the storyline. (Some of the very few characters who have something approaching a distinct personal leitmotif of their own, are Duncan Idaho, and to a lesser extent, Paul Atreides. Paul doesn't have a typical full character theme of his own, but musical elements associated with his character are intertwined with several tracks set in different locations he travels through.)
  • The second film's musical score develops the previously introduced leitmotifs for Arrakis, the Fremen, the Atreides and the Harkonnen, including adding to their greater differentiation in a number of scenes.
