“Soundbreaking” Series Interview with Joshua Bennett

Stories From The Cutting Edge of Recorded Music, from Music Today

If you’re watching the new series on PBS, “Soundbreaking” like we are in our house, you know this is something to behold. If not, well, either way, we’ve got a treat for you with today’s guest.

“Soundbreaking” is the brilliant, spanking new documentary from PBS in association with Sir George Martin, and is produced by Show Of Force. We’re joined today via SKYPE with Show Of Force executive and one of “Soundbreaking’s” producers, Joshua Bennett.

If you’re watching Soundbreaking, which is airing currently on PBS (check your local listings), you’ll agree, it is well worth it.  There is something to be said for hearing that heavenly chorus of voices as the song “God Only Knows,” by the Beach Boys, or Neil Young’s voice on “Don’t Let it Bring You Down,” and Amy Winehouse, Sly Stone, Bonnie Raitt, Little Richard, Fleetwood Mac, the Staples Singers,  or any of the other 160 musicians, and other music professionals, all of whom extol the music recording innovation tracing a sonic revolution. 

The rare footage, the stories the artist’s tell, the music, and the never before seen creative process push along Soundbreaking’s story telling, emphasizing music’s ability to carry us back and forward at the same moment.  Trust me when I tell you, you’ll never hear these songs the same way again!

Check PBS for the series, and each “Soundbreaking” episode will be made available for next-day digital purchase via multiple platforms including iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV and Sony Interactive Entertainment. The series will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, November 29.
