Music has been a constant in human history; an intermingling of voice and instrument that endured in largely unchanged form for centuries. Then came recording – and music was forever transformed.

Featuring more than 150 original interviews with some of the most celebrated artists, producers and music industry pioneers, this eight-part series traces a century of sonic innovation and revolution, exploring the nexus of cutting-edge technology and artistry that has created the soundtrack of our lives.

From The Beatles' groundbreaking use of multi-track technology to the synthesized stylings of Stevie Wonder, from disco-era drum machines to the modern art of sampling, Soundbreaking highlights the dynamic tension between the artificial and the natural – making us hear the songs we love in a new way, and illuminating the alchemy by which the music we listen to becomes a fundamental part of who we are.
