“It’s kinda like what would the world be if slavery never ended,” Timb attempted to explain the movie plot, during a recent edition of the Rap Radar Podcast. “Me being the innovator of sound, I’m from the South and I’m free. I can’t tell you about the whole story. My name is Set and my partner’s name is Man-Man…
As far as Opera Noir, this mysterious album/movie, Timb says he will take his time to make sure it’s right: “That to me is my Thriller. I will not rush into that.” While the description of his movie project seems a bit hard to pin down, he did give a brief insight into the new album, Textbook Timbo, which he said is “back to the basics of me renaming and showing you…don’t ever think I fell off.”
But Timbaland’s big idea is his Sub Pack invention that straps onto the user’s back and vibrates the body as the music plays. “Everybody got headphones,” he said. “I want to be the first innovator on something that will revolutionize the world. So what I created was how you listen to music. How you go to the studio and hear music, I go to your office with this on and you gonna think you’re in the studio. You’re gonna feel like you’re back in the day with the system in your car when you put all the 15 subs in there.”
Sub Pac was created for children and adults that are hearing impaired. Deaf individuals have a unique perspective when it come to music, what we hear they feel. Subpac was created for to feel the sensation of the music itself. A deaf person experiences music on a more primal level than the average person and with the Subpac they will have the ability to connect with a song more than ever before.
"The creators of Sub Pac went to multiple hearing impaired schools around the country and tested Sub Pac on children. The results were astounding. The sensation of a beat on a child that hasn't had that feeling before is like how you felt when you ride your bike for the first time. Subpac wants to help raise awareness for the deaf community, to let everyone know that it's not just hearing the sound but the feeling as well."
