Coming to PBS tonight, Monday, November 14: SOUNDBREAKING: STORIES FROM THE CUTTING EDGE OF RECORDED MUSIC
Maro Chermayeff and Jeff Dupre’s series on music recording history debuted at SXSW. Its fest circuit has also included DOC NYC and San Francisco, among other events.
I previously wrote about the series for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Produced in association with The Beatles’ legendary producer, the late Sir George Martin, this upcoming PBS series ably takes on the daunting challenge of chronicling the history of music recording and producing. Organized thematically, each episode features scores of original interviews with some of the most celebrated recording artists of all time, from Paul McCartney and Roger Waters to Adele and Questlove, as it offers a behind-the-scenes look at the interaction between performer and technology in creating unforgettable music. Moving between past and present, the well-produced series tells the stories behind the sounds that have defined generations.
