Eye on the Oscars: Music

The Eye on the Oscars focus at Variety today turns to music, led by a feature on scoring two dialogue-free projects, “Samsara” and “Blancanieves” …

With nary a line of dialogue between them, two films in 2012 —
“Samsara,” a doc that marvels at the wonders of Earth and the
idiosyncrasies of its human inhabitants, and “Blancanieves,” a
reimagining of Snow White in 1920s Seville, Spain — relied on the
cadence of their images and depth of their score to move sentiment. …

Read the rest of the story here, then check out these other features:

 • Danny Elfman is finishing his busiest year ever.

 • Spotlights on Mychael Danna’s work on “Life of Pi,” Fernando Vasquez and “The Impossible,” Geoff Zanelli and “The Odd Life of Timothy Green,” Thomas Newman and “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” and “Skyfall,” Howard Shore and “The Hobbit,” and John Powell and “The Lorax.”

 • A look at Adele and her heralded title song for “Skyfall.”
