The Sundance Channel will add a new music-based series to their network this fall. Docs That Rock, a series of music-focused documentaries, will be aired back-to-back with Sonic Cinema, which first debuted last year and looks at the relationship between music and film/visual art. The two programs will be branded "Hi-Fi Fridays," and will air each Friday night at 9pm ET/PT from October 3-24. According to Billboard, films scheduled to air on Docs That Rock Mark Moormann's look at the career of engineer/producer Tom Dowd entitled Tom Dowd And The Language Of Music, Justin Mitchell's underground rock expose Songs For Cassavetes, Phish's Mike Gordon's Gov't Mule documentary Rising Low, and Sarah Share's story of the Pogues' Shane MacGowan, entitled If I Should Fall From Grace.
Sonic Cinema episodes will highlight music videos, artists who create music for films, and musicians who utilize visual art. Featured artists this season include DJ Shadow, Spoon, the Flaming Lips, Devo, John Cale, Jack Johnson, Underworld and Supergrass.
