Notes

Only on the 2005 reissue you can hear the full version (30:28) of the track Dune, all older releases used a shorter version (30:06 or 29:52).

The working title for Shadows Of Ignorance was "Arrakis", like the name of the desert planet in the novel "Dune".

The cover photograph was taken by Schulze himself, who arranged black letters on a television screen and took a snapshot during a scene of the Soviet-era science fiction film "Solaris". In 1985, GRAMAVISION in the USA reissued parts of Schulze's back catalogue with new covers showing printed circuit boards superimposed over photographs of landscapes.

In 2005 DUNE was the tenth Schulze album reissued by REVISTED RECORDS as part of a series of Schulze album reissues. The reissue bonus track Le Mans was recorded live on 10 November 1979 in the French town Le Mans.

Some music from "X." was used in:

  • the New Zealand thriller "Next of Kin" (1982)

Equipment
