Varese Sarabande: "BECKY" music by Nima Fakhrara

 

Music.Film Recordings & Varèse Sarabande Records have digitally released the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to the indie thriller Becky from director-duo Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion (Bushwick, Cooties). The pulsing original score is composed by Nima Fakhrara, who is best known for his work on Detroit: Become Human and Crypto. The film was released on June 5th and is available On Demand and Digital, courtesy of Quiver Distribution.

Nima Fakhrara explains his process: “With this score, I took everything to its limits using children’s musical toys, vocal screams, and deep vocal breathings to create the signature sounds you can hear throughout. I wanted Becky to feel like a superhero origin story, and for the audience to experience the emotions Becky feels throughout her journey. Directors Jonathan Milott and Cary Murnion kept pushing me to go wilder, and the score is the result of that.”

Nima’s first experience with music was listening to his uncle play the santour. Influenced by this, he studied that instrument and became well versed in Persian classical music. After moving to the United States, Nima continued his musical studies and attended California State University Northridge where he obtained his degree in composition studies. However, his interest in music was not limited to composition and performance. He studied ethnomusicology, anthropology, and how to construct instruments. Classically trained with both traditional western and non-western sounds, Nima often samples instruments from around the world. If he hasn’t found the right sound, he invents new instruments to create the textures and timbres in his mind.
