The interim chair of Berklee College of Music’s film scoring department, Alison Plante, walks us through the interesting transition we hear in this year’s Oscar nominees for best original score.

Next week, we’ll take a special look at one film that’s been nominated in multiple categories. We’ll talk to experts in sound design, adaptation and visual effects to see how all those pieces fit together to create “The Martian.”
