Klyce Talks Dragon Tattoo Sound

I spoke with Oscar-nominated sound designer Ren Klyce about The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for my TOH column at Indiewire. The underlying soundscape is a freezing, unsettling horror that perfectly complements the creepy, graphic imagery.┬áThe feeling of melting snow was prevalent everywhere and so your ear accepted it as being the same place because it’s freezing.┬áBut it’s the surreal sounds that were most intriguing, including the mugging of Salander in the subway, culminating with her beating up her assailant on the escalator. Fincher wanted the sound to carry the violence with a screeching terror.
