Let me tell you— Alain Mayrand has instincts. His music is haunting, joyous— unforgettable. It fit like a glove.
I hadn’t planned on how much I would depend on Alain. He became my “co-story teller”– like a painter, telling the tale from an impressionist’s point of view. Emotionally, he kept the audience’s “eye on the ball,” so to speak, while the details of the plot unfolded. Often I was moved to tears for reasons I didn’t entirely understand. The subtext for each moment became alive.
He conducted the orchestra in Budapest and watching him do so was something I’ll never forget. You could feel the musicians’ admiration for him and the music as they played.
I have to say, my greatest experience in directing MOSLEY was to hear the orchestra strike up the “family theme” in that giant hall in Hungary. The film is a marvel and a miracle and it would not have been so without Alain Mayrand.
