'Birdman'

Two tracks from the score of Birdman have surfaced online, and they're a rhythmic treat for fans of jazz drumming.

The percussion-only tracks, entitled "Doors and Distance" and "Strut Part II," come from Grammy-winning artist Antonio Sanchez, who composed the score for the Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu dramedy. Though there are no notes in the two attitude-filled tracks, their continuous feel complements the work of Oscar-winning cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity), who lensed the film in a way that gives the appearance that the entire film is one continuous shot.

The Oscar contender, which is being distributed by Fox Searchlight and will be released theatrically Oct. 17, stars Michael Keaton as a washed-up movie star trying to revive his career on Broadway.

The cast of the New York Film Festival's closing-night film also includes Emma Stone, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis, Merritt Wever, Edward Norton, Amy Ryan and Naomi Watts.
