Giles Martin

Giles Martin is George Martin's son and the producer of any new Beatles products, having taken on the role of his father in this respect. He is also a songwriter.

In 2006 Martin collaborated with his father to remix, rearrange, and recombine the music of the Beatles into a soundscape for Love, a theatrical production of Cirque du Soleil, which opened at the Mirage in Las Vegas. His use of digital music production and manipulation techniques allowed him to create Love's musical mash-ups, which he updated in 2016 for the show's 10th anniversary. He produced the music for the final Broadway performance of Rent and worked with Martin Scorsese on his George Harrison film documentary Living in the Material World. Further film collaborations include working with Ron Howard on his Beatles documentary feature Eight Days A Week and the British action franchise Kingsman. Martin was music director for the Elton John bio-pic Rocketman.

In 2009 Martin returned to the Beatles' catalogue with The Beatles: Rock Band, a video game that allows players to simulate performing Beatles songs with plastic instruments. Martin produced the title's music, cleaning and reworking the audio to suit the game's mechanics. In 2013, Martin produced tracks and served as executive producer on Paul McCartney's New album. He was the producer in charge of the 50th anniversary Beatles remix/deluxe editions of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (2017), the White Album (2018), Abbey Road (2019), Let It Be (2021), and Revolver (2022). Martin was music supervisor for the documentary series The Beatles: Get Back, as well as music mixer along with Sam Okell.
