With over 250 releases to his credit, Tony has worked with a diversity of artists from Jason Mraz to the Notorious B.I.G.

Topics for Presentation: Pro Tools 10, Pro Tools Native, M-Audio Venom synth

Montreal-based Damian Taylor’s long-time collaboration with Bjork as a programmer, sound designer and keyboardist has redefined how creativity and technology can work together. In the process, Taylor has also redefined the boundaries of what separates a traditional audio engineer from a programmer, composer or musician. This evolutionary approach to music creation, coupled with a deep, scientific understanding of audio technology, has enabled him to craft a body of work of that is both beautiful and shockingly original. No longer known simply as “that tall guy who does the wizard-rune table thing in Björk’s band”, Damian Taylor has become a highly sought-after collaborator for artists all over the world and is currently at work in Las Vegas producing the Killers’ highly-anticipated new album.
