Deconstructing the Beatles’ THE WHITE ALBUM
In this film, composer/producer, Scott Freiman, a favorite live presenter who is expected to return to Proctors for our 2019-20 season, takes Beatles fans of all ages into the studio with The Beatles as they create their bestselling album, The Beatles (commonly referred to as the White Album).
Released in 1968, the “White Album’s” thirty songs span almost every style of music — from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in Beatles history that included the creation of Apple Corps, the death of former Beatles manager, Brian Epstein, and a legendary trip to India to study meditation.
In this recorded presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into the Abbey Road Studio for a look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of “Revolution,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Blackbird,” and other songs. This journey into the creative process of The Beatles allows audiences to see and hear the evolution of these groundbreaking songs, and to even better understand their lasting influence on popular music. Not rated. 90 minutes.
