Yamaha’s The Sound of Us Set to Premier During NAMM’s Believe in Music Week
As part of NAMM’s Believe in Music week, Yamaha Entertainment Group offers a sneak peek at its latest documentary project, The Sound of Us. Available to all registrants of Believe in Music Week, the preview is scheduled to air on January 22 at 3 p.m. PST on the “Believe TV” channel.
The Sound of Us is “a powerful documentary directed by nine-time Emmy award-winning producer and Yamaha Artist Relations Group/Yamaha Entertainment Group’s chief artist relations executive Chris Gero. The film illustrates that during this critical time in history, music gives sound to hope and courage, allows us to grieve and be honest, and is the great, universal language that unites us all.” At the heart of the production is Yamaha’s core philosophy of “creating excitement and cultural inspiration together with people around the world.”
All of this is eloquently demonstrated through the telling of inspiring stories about the beauty and power of music featuring interviews and performances with well-known artists including Ben Folds, Sarah McLachlan, Avery*Sunshine, Eric Whitacre, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Hiromi Antonio Sanchez, Butch Walker, Will Wells, and Patti Smith.
Gero states, “In my 30 years of making films and records, I have never once had the honor of producing a documentary that has held a greater social and humanitarian message and importance than this film. For me, 2020 became the catalyst of all the things wrong in the world that created the undeniable need to say something and to move headlong into making this film.”
