Life of Pi wins Best Original Score cinematography, VFX Oscars
Music director Mychael Danna won an Oscar in the Best Original Score category for his work in 'Life Of Pi'.
Danna has had a very close collaboration with Lee as they have worked together in the past for films like 'The Ice Storm' and 'Ride with the Devil'.
Danna, who is married to Indian origin Aparna Dana, spent more than a year working on the music for the film with Lee, at first discussing the philosophical elements of Yann Martel's novel, on which the movie is based.
The orchestra was recorded in LA on the 20th Century Fox lot, while various other elements were recorded around the world.
The first composed piece for the film was the song 'Pi's Lullaby', which he wrote with the South Indian singer Bombay Jayashri.
Danna, who is known for creating distinctive and layered musical palettes, has had a longtime fascination with India as he has previously worked with Indian origin filmmakers Deepa Mehta for 'Water' and Mira Nair for 'Monsoon Wedding'.
Danna recently won a Golden Globe for his 'Life Of Pi' score.
