Writing the music for a film that takes place in ancient times or—as in the case with Dune—in a distant and fictional civilisation, is often an opportunity for a composer to ask the question: what would the music of their people sound like? Hans Zimmer (InterstellarGladiator...) thought that the human voice would be the common denominator of these far-flung peoples. This is why one of the musical hallmarks of Dune is a guttural vocal line that punctuates several scenes in the film (Gom Jabbar). In addition to its dramatic interest (it personifies the "Voice of Command"), it also contributes to the spiritual aspect that Zimmer wanted to give to Denis Villeneuve's images: "We agreed that the music would need to have a spirituality to it...a sanctified quality...that would elevate the soul and have the effect that only sacred music can", said the filmmaker. To refine this idea, the composer used two types of strings: oriental timbres and synthesizers. This combination is also an effective way of conveying the strangeness of this fascinating and dangerous desert. Finally, the music is an essential part of the immersive spectacle in this new adaptation of Frank Herbert's SF novel series. This is made possible by, among other things, Dolby Atmos technology, which gives the listener the feeling of being enveloped by the music. This allows for more depth and flexibility in placing the various instruments and voices in the sound-space. Once again, Zimmerian emotion is combined with an insatiable curiosity for technological advances. © Nicolas Magenham/Qobuz

The musical meanders of Blade Runner

2017 marks the return of Rick Deckard, the hero of Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. The original 1982 film will be released in a final cut, restored version on October 14th, shortly after its sequel, directed by Canadian Denis Villeneuve and featuring Ryan Gosling. Fifteen years after the first opus, seasoned composer Hans Zimmer takes up the flag from Vangelis, after replacing at the last minute Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. A classic Hollywood story…
