Synopsis: Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong.

A NOTE FROM THE COMPOSER

Due to budget, I didnít have a full orchestra to record. However, I didnít need it because the film is truly intimate and contained. All I needed were strings and a piano. I actually de-tuned the pianoís black keys to make it a little askew. For the monsterís sound, I took the strings and drums and processed it to become electronic. I really wanted to come up with a signature monster sound, something we havenít heard before that  instills fear, even if the monster isnít onscreen. The last cue of the film when they realize that they can kill the monsters and the monsters are racing toward them, that cue was really crucial to the process," he says. "Once I solved that, everything else fell into place. Itís not a melodic cue, but itís a driving force which led to the monster cue. I never heard how they mixed the film or what they ended up using or leaving out. There were also a lot of visual effects that came in so late that I hadnít seen. It was almost like seeing it for the first time again at the premiere. When I saw John, I gave him a big hug and said, ĎWow, you pulled this off spectacularly.í Heís a demanding guy in many respects, but it was a very rewarding project. John wants everything to be perfect and the way he was able to keep his vision throughout the whole thing was really amazing.
