“Birdman,” the awards season juggernaut with nine Academy Awards nominations, has an easily recognizable and entrancing drum score. Imagine hearing that score live during a screening of the film. That’s what composer Antonio Sanchez does at the ACE Theater in Los Angeles.
The idea fits the style of the film, which is near-complete one shot the entire duration. Hearing the score live only adds to that unique experience.
Hear from Sanchez and star Michael Keaton about this technique in the video below.
