AES 134th Convention
The European audio event of the year kicks off in Rome in 6 weeks! With special tracks on Recording, Live Sound, Loudness, Spatial Sound, and Sound for Pictures, these are four days not to be missed by the world's audio professionals. Keynote speaker, Stephen Webber, is an internationally recognized author, professor of music production & engineering, and star hip-hop DJ. Entitled “Inventing the Album of 2025,” Webber’s AES Keynote will seek to consider what is technologically, economically, and artistically possible, to decipher what the record album should look, sound, and feel like come 2025. Wolfgang Klippel presents the Heyser Memorial Lecture on "Small Loud-Speakers: Pushing Physics to the Limit". Find out how to engineer miniature transducers that sound great, for today's "acoustically challenged" devices such as laptops and smartphones.
