Experience Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Oscar-winning film like you never seen it before – at this special screening featuring the acclaimed score performed live by its composer, jazz drummer Antonio Sánchez.
Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) featured one of the most groundbreaking movie scores of the new century. For his work on the film, Sánchez earned the GRAMMY Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media as well as Golden Globe and BAFTA nominations. His most recent GRAMMY nomination was for his 2017 instrumental album Bad Hombre, a suite of fervent solo drumming improvisations infused with surreal electronic textures. That album confirmed Sánchez—the solo drummer-as-storyteller—as one of the most talented and inventive musicians of his generation.
“Antonio Sánchez is one of the world’s most accomplished and in-demand drummers,” reports National Public Radio. “He is undoubtedly one of the world's best,” says The Huffington Post.
