Sandbox Percussion — Andy Akiho’s Seven Pillars

November 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$25 – $50

Described as “exhilarating” (The New York Times), and “virtuosic and utterly mesmerizing” (The Guardian), Brooklyn’s Sandbox Percussion has established themselves as a leading proponent of this generation of contemporary percussion chamber music. 2021’s Grammy-nominated record Seven Pillars is the jaw-dropping result of a years-long collaboration with trailblazing composer Andy Ahiko. The boldly genre-defying audio and video collaboration consists of seven ensemble movements and one solo movement for each member of Sandbox. With a striking lighting scheme by Michael Joseph McQuilken, Seven Pillars is the largest-scale chamber music work that Akiho has written and that Sandbox has commissioned, with their collaboration spanning the past eight years. The 80-minute, 11-part work has a palindromic structure, with the “pillars” — all written for more than one musician — interspersed with four solos.
