movie scene

I approached the whole score from John Dunbar's point of view. It was his journey, towards the end of the Civil War, to go out there and see the frontier. It was about his observations, how he found the Sioux tribe.

The music reflects John Dunbar's assessment of the dignity and graciousness of these people. As he says in the movie, "Nothing I have been told about these people is correct."

That is where the score lies.

-John Barry, Composer

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

In May of 2004, I was contacted by a very nice lady named Beth from CineMedia Promotions and asked if I would help promote the release of this soundtrack by posting some information on this fanlisting. I, of course, was thrilled to do so. The following pages are printed here with her permission. Anyone who loves Dances With Wolves also loves the soundtrack. You can relive the movie in your mind just by listening to it... it's that amazing.
