about

The Mend is an acidic comic drama from writer/director John Magary. The film stars Josh Lucas and Stephen Plunkett as a mismatched yin-yang pair of NYC brothers, following them as they stagger dimly towards some understanding of love, women, masculinity and brotherhood. Collaborating on their first feature-length film score, violinist/composer Michi Wiancko and keyboardist/composer (and New Amsterdam co-Artistic Director) Judd Greenstein built a trenchant, varied musical world around themes of family tension and existential dread. Playing often like a psychologically-rooted “counterpoint to the film’s existential funk” (Wall Street Journal), the score, composed for strings, keyboard, and woodwinds (performed by yMusic’s Hideaki Aomori), “suggests at all moments that any minor peace might unravel into violence” (The Village Voice). Meticulously produced and mixed by Wiancko, the score stands on its own as a lush, cohesive listening experience.
