The Reason I Jump

The Reason I Jump

Nainita Desai

"This piece is my most personal musical reflection from the film and interpretation of the characters’ experience of neurodiversity. The lyrics are inspired by text from the original book where I wanted to give a voice to the non-verbal characters, breaking their ‘silence’. I wanted the lyricism of the strings, the delicate piano and voices to shed a gentle light on all the facets of autism explored in the film tying Naoki’s final words together with understanding and empathy." - Nainita Desai
