The trailer for the 8-part George Martin series has been released. 'Soundbreaking: Stories From the Cutting Edge of Recorded Music,' was five years in the making with Martin and his son Giles calling upon 150 artists to share behind-the-scenes stories about the art of recording.

The first two episodes are due to premiere today at SXSW, with a PBS premiere scheduled in for November. No exact date has been released.

Directed and produced by Jeff Dupre and Maro Chermayeff, the series features exclusive and original interviews with both artists and producers.


The series is set to include interviews with Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Dave Grohl, Questlove, Bon Iver, Beck, BB King and more.

Joni Mitchell and Debbie Harry are also set to feature. Producers Brian Eno, Nile Rodgers, Quincy Jones and further producers will also be interviewed throughout.

"Soundbreaking afforded me the opportunity to tell the story of the creative process of so many of the artists I have worked with throughout my life," said Martin said in a statement before his death on March 8.
