"The music for After the Wedding explores the sound of our suppressed past boiling up into our present, in a time and place not of our choosing. I chose the Indian Bansuri to portray the calm surface of the present, which is disrupted by the urgent and turbulent emergence of a string octet, initially wild and violent. As the story progresses, the two opposite musical poles find a meeting place of truth and honesty, where both, the songs of the small orchestra and Bansuri, coexist and create new music together."– Mychael Danna, composer.
