Arrakis is the latest release from Timotheos, comprised of fourteen ambient music tracks inspired by Frank Herbert's 1965 sci-fi novel, Dune. Arrakis is the desert planet which is home to the spice "melange". the most valuable substance in the universe.
Timotheos sets you up with a sonic companion piece to the rich fantasy world that Herbert so expertly created. There is much invention in these soundscapes, so take care to enjoy the textures. Combining austere, slow burning creations with busy synthetic outings, there is also heavier fare as the sudden guitar attack/feedback of "A Fold In Space" bears out. Feel free to revisit the book with this music as your guide.
