Starring Hans Zimmer, Reggie Watts and Tycho, watch the free Youtube documentary The Art of Listening

The only thing better than a great documentary is a free great documentary (Youtube is the icing on the cake!), and The Art of Listening is all of these things.

A doco focusing on the journey music undertakes between when it is conceived in an artist’s mind and when it meets your ear, it’s an unparalleled peek into the best of the best. Producers, composers and the artists themselves all make an appearance.

Peer into the minds of music’s elite with The Art of Listening, a newly released documentary for free on Youtube.

Directors Michael Coleman and Emmanuel Moran interview over forty practitioners to explore “the intent of an instrument maker and composer” and the role played by “producers and engineers who capture and preserve an artist’s voice.”

Amazingly curated and fabulously shot, it’s an absolute treasure from start to finish. Those chosen to be a part of this project are not only at the top of the game, but musical purists in every sense.

Those forty musicians include appearances from Hans Zimmer, Tycho, Reggie Watts, Kamasi Washington, Hiatus Kaiyote and way more. Keep an eye out for them all.

The soundtrack was composed by Christopher Willits.
