What would pop and urban music sound like without Timbaland? This sonic guru has been expanding our ears and minds for two decades with his innovative production work. Timbaland’s collaborations with Ginuwine, Aaliyah and Missy Elliott helped to turn these incredible talents into superstars. He obliterated genre lines in his work with Nelly Furtado, Chris Cornell and Björk; icons like Beyoncé, Jay Z and Justin Timberlake turn to him over and over again for his unerring ear for strange and unforgettable sounds. In 2015, Timbaland created a new musical language for the small screen, as the executive music producer and co-songwriter of Empire - the biggest show on television. 20 years into his reign, Timbaland could easily rest on his laurels. But he just keeps moving and growing. In this keynote interview, Timbaland will look back at the moments that have defined his career, discuss his new book The Emperor of Sound, and then look ahead: to his forthcoming solo album Opera Noir, the future of Empire, and beyond. Don’t miss this chance to get unprecedented insight into the mind and creative spirit of one of the great writer-producers of our era.
