About the Movie
Deep in the San Fernando Valley, behind the train tracks and amidst dilapidated warehouses, was rock n' roll's best kept secret. Sound City, America's greatest unsung recording studio, housed a legendary, one-of-a-kind recording console, and became the birth place to the seminal albums that defined 20th century music. Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, Rick Springfield, Tom Petty, Nirvana, amongst many others, all put magic to tape within these walls. It was Rock n’ Roll hallowed ground. Directed by Dave Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters) and featuring interviews and performances by the iconic musicians who made their careers in the studio, SOUND CITY tells the story of real rock n'roll history, and celebrates the human element of music, as Grohl gathers some of rock's greatest artists to collaborate on a new album. Using Sound City's legendary analog console, together they continue to create musical miracles in a digital world.
SOUND CITY - Epic Rock On.
If you turned on a radio from the 70s through to the 90s - this film is for you!
A star studded cast with epic insider stories and a how-to on recording processes spanning the decades, SOUND CITY - well it rocks!
If you play the guitar - it makes you want to go home and practice. If you don't play the guitar - it makes you want to go home and practice.
Never before in my life had I played AIR NEVE - and now, I'm pushing imaginary faders with euphoric glee.
For me as a digital gen-Y protools head with Renzoreseque tendencies - this movie has explained the warm lush sounds of my youth, how they were created, developed and how we can move forward in the evolution of music.
Dave Grohl - thanks for your movie hon & watch out - my air Neve skills will see me at 606 in no time.
