Brian Eno - "Prophecy Theme" (1984)

The soundtrack of Dune, the David Lynch's movie, was composed by the pop band Toto, except one track: "Prophecy Theme" (n°9 on the CD) was written, composed and performed by Brian Eno, Daniel Lanois and Roger Eno.

In 1984, Brian Eno was working with Daniel Lanois on the production of U2's new album, The Unforgettable Fire. But "Prophecy Theme" is closer to their common work on Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks (1983), a splendid and unforgettable album. In 1985, Brian Eno released Thursday Afternoon, his master piece of ambient music, a one hour long composition. 

"Prophecy Theme" is a haunting melodic track, relying on a multi-layered electronic polyphony, processed by a long reverb treatment.

Its slow development and its infinite depth create an unforgettable climate.

This is such a beautiful track that I would like to share it with you: it is a 4:19 track (usually I set Itunes in an infinite repeat mode ;-)
