In his wildly popular series Deconstructing the Beatles, musicologist composer and producer Scott Freiman delivers unique educational presentations about the creative process of the Beatles. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions. Filmed at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY, this special event does what no Beatles coffee table book can do: provide a riveting multimedia experience that is equal parts education and entertainment.

In Deconstructing The Beatles’ White Album, composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their bestselling album, The Beatles (commonly referred to as the White Album).

Released in 1968, the White Album’s thirty songs span almost every style of music—from hard rock to country to chamber music to avant garde. Its recording took place during a remarkable year in Beatles history that included the death of Brian Epstein, the creation of Apple Corps, and a trip to India to study meditation.

In this multimedia presentation, Mr. Freiman transports his audience into Abbey Road Studio for a look at the revolutionary techniques used during the production of “Revolution,” “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” “Blackbird,” and other songs from the White Album. It will be an educational journey into the creative process of The Beatles performances and recording sessions, allowing the audience to see and hear the evolution of these groundbreaking songs and their lasting influence on popular music.
