Antonio Sanchez - Shadows and Light
Antonio Sanchez is a drummer, band leader, and composer. He wrote and performed the score for the film Birdman, has played with Pat Metheny for 18 years, and records and tours with his own band, Migration. His latest release, Lines in the Sand, was out in January.
In this piece, called Shadows and Light, Antonio seamlessly blends electronics driven by Sensory Percussion with his acoustic kit, pushing into new realms of sonority and color.
In this interview, we talk with Antonio about his work, sources of inspiration, and approaches to composition and sound design. In the second half of the video, he walks through his Sensory Percussion setup for Shadows and Light.
