Creating a soundscape for one Bad City

Ana Lily Amirpour's Iranian Vampire Western really captured my imagination. It wasn't just the music, but also the industrial landscape of electrical plants and the fields of oil drills "like galumphing prehistoric beasts, going up and down and up and down" that got me. 

The soundtrack which includes three original fusion beats by Bei Ru is due out in February 2015. That's a long wait for an amazing soundscape for a vampire movie, so I thought I'd hunt down what I knew I could find. 

I put my recipe for the soundscape of the movie's Bad City up amongst the thousands of Christmas recipes on Snapguide:

Farah's Dancing Girls which is one of the many fusion tunes that is on the track, is already up on Soundcloud and it really is fantastic.

If you love things Persian, try out the recipes that Davar Ardalan has been posting on Snapguide too! I recommend her #tadig cupcakes:
