PBS is set to premiere a new series called “Soundbreaking” tonight, focusing on the art and science of recording music, as well as its evolution throughout the 1900’s and 2000’s. The show will cover many areas of the recording process, but perhaps the one that piqued our interest the most was Episode 8. That one will highlight the Grateful Dead and famed audio engineer Betty Cantor-Jackson, according to a post from drummer Mickey Hart.Hart writes, “Looking forward to the Soundbreaking premiere tonight, a new doc series that celebrates the art and science of music recording. Tune in to PBS tonight at 10/9C. Make sure to watch Episode 8 for an intimate look behind the scenes of the Grateful Dead with Betty Cantor-Jackson.” He also shared a trailer for the series, which you can watch below.It’s understandable that a series focusing on music recording would examine the Grateful Dead, who had a once-unique relationship with audio tapers eager to preserve live recordings. Unlike any other band at the time, the Dead encouraged tapers to trade their music, ultimately spawning a grassroots following like nothing before. It’s no surprise that so many bands in the scene have since adopted a similar policy, encouraging the sharing of music between fans.We’re looking forward to getting a closer look at the Grateful Dead’s recording process on this exciting new show!
Press Association Wrong Turn makes a quick reappearance after winning at Killarney last weekend in the Kilfeacle Stud ‘Portrait Gallery’ Handicap Chase. Ruby Walsh will be in the plate as Tony Martin’s charge tries to defy a penalty. Ballyreesode has a 9lb rise to contend with in the Arkenvale Ltd Handicap Hurdle, with Rolling Rocket and Marshim, as well as Sterling Stuff, primed to exploit any weakness. The latter’s trainer Robert Tyner saddles two in the Glenview And Rathberry Stud Novice Hunters Chase, with Soaring High and Bingo Bash both boasting solid credentials between the flags. However, Ibetellingyoualie and She’s Got Grit have previous experience of jumping obstacles under Rules and that could prove to be crucial. Willie Mullins and Gigginstown House Stud team up with impressive Loughnamore winner Unic De Bersy in the p2p.ie (C&G) Point-To-Point INH Flat Race. There are also a couple of point-to-point winners in the mares’ version, with Our Belief, Scamaill Liath, Fennis Moll and Teresa Lisbon possibly the pick of the bunch. Sizing Rio is the star of the show at Tipperary on Thursday as he makes his fencing debut in the Kedrah House Stud ‘Well Chosen’ Beginners Chase. Henry de Bromhead pulled his charge out of the race won by Felix Yonger at Punchestown last Saturday and has settled on what appears to be a slightly easier task here. Sizing Rio could well be completing a double for De Bromhead if he wins as the trainer also has a prime contender for the opening Healy Partners Architects Maiden Hurdle in Turica.
