ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the decision of composer Howard Shore to record the scoring for the motion picture A History of Violence at AIR Studios in Lyndhurst Hall, London, England. The hall is once home to a church and missionary school. Since 1992, the building, designed in 1880 by Alfred Waterhouse, has been one of England's top destinations for film scoring and has played host to composers on Batman Begins, Ray and Shrek 2, as well as Shore's work for Gangs of New York and The Cell. For the film A History of Violence, the sound he was seeking mirrors the motion picture's visual style, which in turn takes its cue from the openness of the midwestern landscape. On a conceptual level, Shore and director David Cronenberg discussed the film in terms of classic Westerns.
