7.2.1 By fans

Many fans have become inspired by "Dune" to create music. This section
is heavily under construction.

- In 1998, "SSM" posted links to MIDI and MP3 files of a melody composed
by his brother called "Gurney's song" (the one that begins "Orchards and
vineyards") to alt.fan.dune. There's no known current source for these
files.
- In January 2001, Alexander Johannesen posted a link to an MP3 of a
track he had made called "Dunish", featuring samples from the movie.
There is no known current source for this file.
- In 2001, Giovanni Wassen posted links to several Dune-inspired tracks
he had made. They are available on his website:
