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 result of a years-long collaboration with composer Andy Ahiko. The audio and video collaboration consists of seven ensemble movements and one solo movement for each member of Sandbox.

With a 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.
