On Monday, June 22, 2020, AES Members have the exclusive opportunity to join Thomas Lund and Hyunkook Lee for a live, Encore online Q&A to cover topics from “Goodbye Stereo” – the most “favorited” session from the AES Virtual Vienna Convention. AES Virtual Vienna registrants have access to the on-demand archive of the workshop through the Convention website, along with the complete Technical Program content from the Convention, through June 30. All other AES members will be able to access video playback of the “Goodbye Stereo” workshop through the AES Member Portal beginning Friday, June 19.
The Zoom link to the live Encore Q&A with Lund and Lee will be available on the AES Member Portal on Monday the 22nd, with the live Q&A beginning at 12 Noon Eastern Daylight Time that day.
“Technology has long been available to record and reproduce music in more perceptually satisfactory ways than stereo,” state Lund (Senior scientist, Genelec OY) and Lee (Associate Professor, University of Huddersfield) in the “Goodbye Stereo” workshop description. “Formats known as 'surround' were a first step, but with 'immersive', excellent music performances can be preserved more sentiently. As ‘stereo’ is fast becoming just a playback option, we will discuss immersive recording techniques, and which mixing principles to put behind us, for instance level panning.” The workshop includes numerous compelling recording examples that aurally reinforce the technical concepts presented.
The “Goodbye Stereo” on-demand playback and live Q&A is the first in the new members-only Encore Series of events where noted presenters of popular, enlightening and even historic AES events will join AES members for online dialog.
The next two Encore Series events will also feature AES Virtual Vienna workshop authors: Alex Case’s “The Lead Vocal – Record and Mix Strategies” and Claudia Nader Jamie’s “Binaural Sound in ASMR-inducing [Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response] Media and Wellbeing”. Dates will be announced soon.
