About Shaking Through
Shaking Through is a documentary series about the Birth of a Song. Each year we give 10 of the most exciting young minds in music a challenge: One Song in two days.
First take to final mix. No extensions. No safety net.
We bring in the best filmmakers around so we can share the band’s experience with you. We want tell you about the stories behind the songs, the techniques we used to produce it, and help you witness the sacred places where artists bare their souls. Every song, every take.
You’d be surprised how much goes into one song. All the people, all the stories. Music is our passion, how could we keep this to ourselves?
