SCORING WITH SOUND: EVOKING THE DESOLATION OF THE AMERICAN FRONTIER IN THE HOMESMAN
The shifting dynamic toward a more involved approach to film scoring is glaringly evident in Marco Beltrami’s work for the 2014 western drama, The Homesman. Beltrami’s involvement in the early stages of the project’s production and his propensity for adopting unorthodox, innovative approaches to sound work in symbiosis with the other aspects of the film to create a richer, fuller, and more meaningful piece of cinema. In the body of this paper, I will aim to analyze Marco Beltrami’s work on The Homesman to better understand the processes and logic he utilized to create this phenomenal score and the effect his increased involvement had on the overall narrative of the film.
