2010 triple DVD set. The creative center of popular music today is the beatmaker/ producer. Whether it is Timbaland, Dilla, Dre, or Madlib, these musicians have an uncanny sense for voicing's, a penchant for unusual sounds and catchy rhythms and a magical ability to manufacture a good performance. Today's beatmakers are the direct descendants of yesterday's composer/arrangers. Their processes, whether it be writing a memorable line for background singers or finding the appropriate moment for a baritone harmonica, mirror those of today's musicians. Today's beatmakers produce music on a grand scale, but through automation and sampling. Timeless brings these two seemingly unlike worlds together. The series honors the musical legacies of some of the greatest composer and arrangers ever. Timeless celebrates the work in the context it should be seen, with full orchestras. From Mulatu Astatke to J. Dilla to Arthur Verocai, the Timeless Concert Series touched upon the works of three musical giants.
