    Really? I think it sounds like a beginner's attempt at piobaireachd, yet thinking about bits of both a slow aire and reel they were also learning.

    Greetings to All,

    May I now--resurrect--an old--"Star Trek" episode--where "Scottie"-- is playing
    the pipes--for a burial service--in deep space--as the coffin is sent out--among
    the stars??

    We have lasted--and grown--this far--and I am well settled--that we--and both
    Present--and Future--and The Pipes--and The Music--shall not falter--nor be--
    obscured...

    To paraphrase an Old Brythonic Celtic saying--in translation:
    "In spite of everybody--and everything--we--are still here!" :-)

    And--herein--lies my surety:
    "As it was in the Beginning, 'tis now and ever shall be.
    World without end. Amen."

    Regards to All,

    Pip01

    Maybe the air on Arrakis is a dispersive medium.

    If it follows the trend of last 50 years it might be outside of human hearing range, hence the need to dub it in using a synth
    Perhaps human hearing will have changed by then, too!

    Enjoy the films!!--and--maybe--next time--we shall hear--and see--

    I could not agree more. I, too, saw the film and enjoyed it (though bummed it's Part 1....of how many?). In any event, there is a brief scene of pipes as we know them. Why not the sound as we know them? Is there some concept that pipes, and the music and sound, cannot continue into future centuries? That they must be somehow "electronic" sounding? Yes, synthetic strings and other changes have altered violins, for instance, from the 1600s. Yet it's not been so dramatic a change that we would not recognize those earlier instruments (and, yes, there are those who play them today with the original construction and type strings). I would love to think that pipes will be eternal (notwithstanding all the complaints about pitch, etc. changing).

    Haven't heard it, but going off this photo there's some lineup of pipers on it.....

    J.R., here you go on the why: https://www.thenational.scot/news/19...21-adaptation/

    And, not that it matters, but I thought similar thoughts as you until I read this above the spark for why. I can dig it all.

    I would love to learn more about who played on this and how the session was recorded and planned. While others have mentioned the synth-y quality of the sound, I definitely heard the chanters, albeit with an augmented scale and a more Breton/Galician vibe (which I think fits the euro-Celt aesthetic of the early parts of the movie). While it would have been nice to see the pipes played on screen, this was, in my opinion, far superior to something like Braveheart where you see a highland piper and hear uilleann piping.

    Is this the track in question?

    Greetings to All,

    I find myself hard pressed--to discover any correlation--between the above
    soundtrack--and the photos--in Billy Boy's Post-- # 46. (??)

    Pipes?? Oh!! No!! :-(

    More like a badly tinned-up--and ghastly --hurdy-gurdy--or some such--to
    my poor ears. (And I both like--and appreciate--the hurdy-gurdy. :-)

    Ah--what price--fashion?? :-)

    Regards to All,

    Pip01

    That's odd. I thought that Lorne MacDougall, Chris Armstrong and Finlay Macdonald had contributed to the piping in Dune under the guidance of Hans Zimmer. They're certainly listed on the soundtrack CD. I guess the post production resulted in the synth type sound. I've been using Cubase since the 90s, it's easy enough to do, I guess the question is WHY would you want to do it?

    Untitled design - 2021-10-25T135358.421.png.jpg According to an article in The National, the movie's composer (Hans Zimmer) describes the making of the sound in question...

    '“The pandemic had just started, but lo and behold, within seconds, in Edinburgh, I managed to find 30 bagpipe players, who were more than happy to go into a big church and stand at the right distance from each other and make a fabulous noise.”

    'Composer Zimmer described the overall score for the film as spiritual without being religious, and often altered the sounds of instruments using the Cubase – a virtual synthesiser.'
