Dave Grohl makes his directorial debut with the documentary Sound City, which delves into the history behind the infamous Van Nuys recording studio. We have the second trailer for you to check out, which looks at the iconic analog recording equipment that made the studio famous, and has been used by countless musicians over the past 40 years.
The film was conceived by Dave Grohl after he purchased the legendary Neve 8028 recording console from Sound City Studios last year. The console, built in 1972, is considered by many to be the crown jewel of analog recording equipment, having recorded countless musical legends over the past 40 years. Through interviews with the artists and producers that created decades of musical history at Sound City, the film will showcase the amazing history of the studio, focus on the albums recorded there that went on to change the world, discuss the human element of music in an age of technology, and feature performances from many of the artists that called it home.
Sound City will debut at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
