Sound Pictures: Producing the Beatles with Sir George Martin


Sunday December 2, 2018
2:00 PM
Join us for a discussion by Ken Womack of the first multi-volume biography of George Martin. A detailed account of Martin’s work with The Fab Four as they advance beyond the success of their earlier recordings, Sound Pictures takes readers behind the scenes with stories of Martin’s interactions with the band, including when John Lennon, who hated the sound of his own voice, requested that Martin tweak his vocals: “Make me sound like the Dalai Lama chanting from a mountaintop.” Martin’s experimentation led to the creation of such classics as Revolver, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road but mounting pressures and challenges threatened their achievements.

After his work with the Beatles, Martin continued his work as a music producer with acts such as Elton John, America, Jeff Beck, Cheap Trick and Paul McCartney. However, Martin and the Beatles would ultimately find their way back to each other to immortalize the magic that started it all. Decades later, George Martin’s legacy continues to influence music history as new generations rediscover the timeless wonder of the Beatles. Fans will enjoy following the story of the band’s incredible artistic trajectory.
