A new six-part documentary coming exclusively to Apple TV+ on July 30 will shed light on the revolutionary technologies that have shaped the music industry, and talk to musicians and creators about the unique tools that have influenced their work.
The series, Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson, comes from Academy Award-winning producer Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) and is hosted by Ronson, the internationally renowned DJ, artist and producer.
Each episode will follow Ronson as he uncovers the untold stories behind music creation and lengths producers will go to…
Ronson received an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award and a Grammy for co-writing Shallow, as performed by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper in A Star is Born.
His first album, Here comes the Fuzz, was released in 2003. It was followed by Version (2007), Record Collection (2010), Uptown Special (2015) and Late Night Feelings (2019).
Each episode of Watch The Sound will follow Ronson as he uncovers the untold stories behind music creation and the lengths producers and creators are willing to go to find the perfect sound.
In what looks like a must watch for music lovers and technology geeks alike, the Apple TV+ show features illuminating conversations with music legends and icons including Paul McCartney, Gary Numan, Questlove, King Princess, Dave Grohl, Adrock and Mike D from the Beastie Boys, and Charli XCX.
At the end of each episode, Ronson will create a unique piece of original music using the technology and techniques discussed, including reverb, synth, autotune, drum machines, sampling and distortion.
