It might be easier to name the American and British popular music stars who don’t appear in Soundbreaking, the eight-part documentary series premiering Monday, November 14, on PBS. Whether through original interviews or rare archival materials, the series—directed and produced by Maro Chermayeff, chair of MFA Social Documentary Film at SVA, and Jeff Dupre, her partner at Show of Force, their production company—presents dozens, if not hundreds, of the producers, writers and performers who have shaped the history of what the series′ creator, the late, famed Beatles producer George Martin, called “100 years of recorded sound.”
“See the Music: The Evolution of Music and Video” will take place Thursday, November 3, 7:00 - 9:00pm, at the 3rd-floor amphitheater at 209 East 23rd Street. This event is free and open to the public but seating is limited and registration recommended. Click here to RSVP and for more details.
