The Malibu Library Speaker Series presents its first event of 2017, Roll Up! Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour with Scott Freiman. This multimedia presentation explores the music written for the "Magical Mystery Tour" television show, as well as the additional songs that appeared on the 1967 Magical Mystery Tour album.
Scott Freiman is an internationally recognized expert and lecturer on the music of The Beatles. He is the creator of Deconstructing the Beatles, a series of multimedia presentations about the composition and production techniques of The Beatles. He has presented his lectures to sold-out audiences at theaters nationwide and has spoken about The Beatles at colleges, universities, and corporations.
In 1967, The Beatles embarked on an ambitious project, writing and directing a one-hour film, Magical Mystery Tour. The music written for the film is some of The Beatles' psychedelic best. In Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, Scott Freiman delves into the creative process behind "The Fool On The Hill," "Blue Jay Way," "I Am The Walrus," and other selections from Magical Mystery Tour. Scott will also "deconstruct" other songs from the Magical Mystery Tour album, including "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Penny Lane," and "All You Need Is Love."
Part film, part concert, part lecture, Roll Up! Deconstructing The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour uses a combination of rare audio and video as well as historical photos, recording track sheets, and more to bring the audience into the studio with The Beatles as they create their music.
RSVPs are required. RSVP online or call Malibu Library at 310-456-6438.
