The last project that legendary music producer George Martin worked on before his death last week was the PBS docu series “Soundbreaking: Stories from the Cutting Edge of Recording Music,” which screens at SXSW this week and premieres in November on PBS.
The first two installments of the eight-episode series screen today, Wednesday and Friday as part of the Austin festival’s “24 Beats Per Second” line-up. The series combines access to celebrated music artists, producers and innovators and rare archival studio footage for a behind-the-scenes look at the birth of brand new sounds. It will chronicle inventions like the microphone, Moog synthesizer, phonograph and digital streaming.
Martin is credited as the figure who made “Soundbreaking” come to life for producer-directors Maro Chermayeff and Jeff Dupre of the New York-based production banner Show of Force. The series bows Nov. 14 on PBS.
