Soundbreaking

Synopsis
Featuring more than 150 original interviews with some of the most celebrated artists, producers and music industry pioneers, this eight-part series traces a century of sonic innovation and revolution, exploring the nexus of cutting-edge technology and artistry.

From The Beatles’ groundbreaking use of multi-track technology to the synthesized stylings of Stevie Wonder, from disco-era drum machines to the modern art of sampling, Soundbreaking highlights the dynamic tension between the artificial and the natural.

Interviewees include George Martin, Chuck D, Nile Rodgers and Brian Wilson.
