The Beatles: Across Their Universe
How the Beatles Revolutionized Popular Music in the 1960s
The British Invasion of 1964 proved to be more successful than the one of nearly 200 years before, as four mop-topped musicians from Liverpool set out to stand American musical culture on its collective ear. After the initial wave of Beatlemania wore off, the Beatles proceeded to revolutionize American music through their ingenious work in the recording studio. This presentation examines how it was done, where their roots lay, and the innovative sounds that came from the famed Abbey Road studios in London. A PowerPoint presentation and recordings from the Beatles' catalog highlight this "edu-taining" program.
