Grammy®-award winning producer Mark Ronson is your guide in this entertaining and deep dive docuseries about sound creation and the revolutionary technology shaping modern music. Whether geeking out with the Linndrum inventor and the creators of the TR-808 or revisiting the creative process from pop’s biggest influences, Ronson leads us on an exploration of the powerful tools, techniques and discovery that has shaped our culture. AD-Rock and Mike D from the Beastie Boys, David Grohl, Questlove and King Princess and others join in on the fun too, with discussions on the legacy of drum machines and the divisiveness of autotune. The result is an essential mix tape (or playlist) for the ages. AFI DOCS is proud to host the U.S. premiere of three episodes from Apple TV+’s latest series, WATCH THE SOUND WITH MARK RONSON: “Autotune,” “Sampling,” “Drum Machine.”
