Tim Huebschle’s crime thriller #LANDoftheBRAVEfilm starring Elize de Wee is expected to hit the big screen on 10 October. Ahead of the premiere, the film released an original soundtrack titled ‘My Ghosts’ by Vaughn Ahrens & Ixa.
The quirky and captivating credit roll soundtrack features visuals captured by Haiko Boldt with sound engineering by Adam Brandon-Kirby.
Vaughn Ahrens, who won the award for Best Afrikaans at the 2019 Namibian Annual Music Awards said he was lucky enough to be part of the film’s test audience where he had the opportunity to get a good feel of the film for the writing of the lyrics.
“I kind of imagined what I’d like to hear as the credits roll out, and went from there,” Ahrens said, “I think Ixa and I really captured the overall emotion that the movie brings with the lyrics and music. I think we’re busy blending styles here and that’s what’s making this endeavour such an interesting listen.”
According to Ixa, when he received the rough version of the beat for ‘My Ghosts’, he repeatedly watched the trailer before writing his part of the lyrics, adding that on the 21 August they recorded the song in less than two 2 hours.
“My lyrics basically explain how dangerous the streetlife in Namibia is and how difficult it can be to get out of the streets once you have chosen that life,” Ixa said.
‘My Ghosts’, is originally produced for #LANDoftheBRAVEfilm as part of the film score composed by Ginge, who is currently still writing some of the music.
