Light in the Attic releases score to Jodorowsky’s Dune documentary

Light in the Attic releases score to Jodorowsky's Dune documentary

It may not be an immersive theater reenactment of the toad and lizard circus from Jodorowsky’s Holy Mountain (sans the bloodshed part; that part was sad and not awesome), but for fans of the Chilean director/mystic/all-around fantastic weirdo, Light in the Attic’s upcoming release of the score to the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune is still pretty rad.

Kurt Stenzel’s original score to the doc, an exploration of the director’s amazing-sounding yet never-made take on Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel, has a Tangerine Dream-esque quality, with one foot firmly in THE FUTURE and one in some oddball synthy version of the past. The flick was originally meant to star Salvador Dalí, Mick Jagger, and Orson Welles, with designs by H. R. Giger and music by Pink Floyd. Alas. You can check out the track “Parallel World” below and wallow in your own sorrow and speculation about what could have been.

The release hits stores November 13. If you pre-order, you get a version with Cosmic Swirl wax, a silver foil numbered jacket, and a poster — you know the drill.
