The score for Oculus is a hybrid of organic and electronic instrumentation. The Newton Brothers spent a good month making custom sounds out of broken glass, metal scrapes, detuned instruments, and synthesizers in combination with choir, and a 50 piece string section to support. The music has a constant pulse to it to represent the mysterious mirror, and to help make the listener feel that it’s alive. It’s the mirror's theme… They also recorded a variety of solo woodwinds severely treated to subtly compliment the strings and aid in emphasizing the strength, love and loss of a family. Their ultimate goal was to simply support the incredible emotional transformation within the story as well as the psychological twists, which drive you through the film.
