Critically acclaimed Electronica musician Zan Lyons creates a haunting new soundtrack to the groundbreaking live action / animated adaptation of the cult graphic novels by Frank Miller. Set in a radically imagined landscape which plays a crucial role in the film’s narrative, Sin City delivers a unique, darkly unsettling eruption of new ways of seeing from the very heart of the Hollywood machine.
