Diane Rehm, the well-known NPR radio host, is featured in a new documentary I’m scoring. The film, called When My Time Comes, is about Rehm’s efforts to legalize medical aid in dying for people who are terminally ill. She took up the cause after watching her late husband suffer needlessly for the lack of this option. Rehm is a terrific interviewer, and some of the scenes with patients and survivors are just gutting. My challenge has been to enhance the film’s natural emotions without getting in the way of them. Alto sax features prominently in the score, but there are some spots where the director, Joe Fab, wanted just piano. Joe has directed this thoughtful and important film with a real sensitivity, and I am honored to have been included in the production.
