From the venue:As part of the Schwartz Artist-in-Residence program, Art by Emory and the Emory Department of Music invite Grammy Award-winning jazz drummer Antonio SÃ¡nchez (pictured above) to give a live performance of Birdmanâ€™s soundtrack. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture and the BAFTA for Best Film Music, Birdman follows a washed-up film actorâ€™s struggle to shed his old identity by taking on Broadway. SÃ¡nchezâ€™s soundtrack pairs well with the filmâ€™s cinematography, reinforcing the acclaimed thematic threads as the characters navigate an unpredictable environment. SÃ¡nchez will play live as the film rolls alongside him, giving the audience a new way to experience both the story and his talent.
