The Sound is Proud to Present Soundbreaking on Prime TV
Music has been a constant in human history, but with the arrival of recording, music was forever transformed. Soundbreaking an eight-part event tv series, traces this on-going sonic revolution, and explores the nexus of cutting-edge technology and human artistry that has created the soundtrack of our lives.
Featuring more than 150 original interviews with some of the most celebrated recording artists, producers, and music industry pioneers of all time, Soundbreaking charts a century's worth of innovation and experimentation, and offers a behind-the- scenes look at the birth of brand new sounds.
From The Beatles’ ground-breaking use of multi-track technology to the synthesized stylings of Stevie Wonder, from disco-era drum machines to the modern art of sampling, the series highlights the dynamic tension between the artificial and the natural––between the man-made and the god-given.
