SURROUND LIVE III—TOTALLY SURROUNDED is the third iteration of the most comprehensive event devoted exclusively to the creation, production, and reproduction of live audio in multichannel surround.
Following on the highly successful event held in NYC in 2003 and in San Francisco in 2004, SURROUND LIVE III—TOTALLY SURROUNDED, will again be offered as a one-day interactive workshop.
Surround Live will bring together working professionals from the performance audio, Broadway theater, sports television, environmental audio, fine arts, and other industry segments as well as the recording technology areas, to discuss the issues and technological challenges created by presenting sporting events, music, drama, theater, art, and cultural exhibitions in full multichannel surround audio formats to an audience.
Combining formal presentations with an interactive workshop and live/prerecorded performances, attendees will be able to experience and learn from working professionals the process of creating and presenting multichannel audio for a variety of live applications, and how this differs from the processes associated with multichannel work done in a after the event post-production environment.
A full 5.1+ channel large scale sound system will be in place courtesy of Meyer Sound Labs, along with a DIGICO console, and electronic reverberation technology from Lexicon, Inc.. Shure, Inc. will be supply a wide range of wired and wireless microphones for use in the workshop. A live performance will be an integral part of the event.
Anyone who is involved in performance audio, multichannel sound, or is interested in how the two combine, is invited to attend. One of the main themes of the event is how immersing the audience in the sound field can significantly enhance the overall the experience.
Registration Fees: AES Members: USD 125; Nonmembers USD 150 in Advance. On site fees are higher. (Go to www.AES.org for information and to register) This fee includes coffee breaks and lunch and access to all four days of the 119th AES Convention Exhibits at the Javits Center.
