121st AES CONVENTION PRESS RELEASE###
121st AES CONVENTION OFFERS STELLAR PLATINUM MASTERING PANEL
Bob Ludwig + 5 Master Mastering Engineers To Address Todays State of The Art
SAN FRANCISCO: The 121st AES Convention will offer a gathering of true luminaries for the Platinum Mastering Panel, Saturday, Oct. 7 noon to 1:30PM. Looking back at previous panels it always seems impossible to meet much less exceed their standards, Convention Committee Chair John Strawn said, but moderator Bob Ludwig has outdone himself. We are most appreciative for his taking time from an incredibly busy schedule to coordinate this highly anticipated event.
Platinum Mastering Panelists include: Moderator Bob Ludwig, Grammy winning president of Gateway Mastering & DVD, (The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The Police, Nirvana, Rush); Grammy winners: Adam Ayan (Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts. Nine Inch Nails, Phish, Faith Hill, Carrie Underwood, Sarah McLachlan); Brian "Big Bass" Gardner (50 cent, Eminem, Blink 182, Christina Aguilera, Madonna, No Doubt, Black Eyed Peas); Darcy Proper (The Eagles, Donald Fagen, Steely Dan, Eric Clapton, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Renee Fleming); and Grammy nominees: Stephen Marcussen (Barbra Streisand, The Rolling Stones, REM, Stone Temple Pilots, Paul McCartney, Don Henley, Dwight Yoakum); and Herb Powers, Jr. (Mariah Carey, Alicia Keys, Usher, Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Lauryn Hill).
The panel will focus on the rapid de-evolution of the record business from the relatively stable pre-iPod paradigm into one of merged record companies, slashed budgets, vanishing artist development and the rebirth of indie labels and independent artists. Bob Ludwig has assembled an all star panel of mastering engineers which will discuss their current projects and describe how their jobs have changed in reaction to this industry sea change. A key issue will be the question is high resolution audio still viable?
The 121st AES Convention will be held in San Franciscos Moscone Center October 5-8, 2006.
Formed in 1948 by a group of concerned audio engineers, the
Audio Engineering Society counts over 12,000 members throughout the
U.S., Latin America, Europe, Japan and the Far East. The AES serves as
the pivotal force in the exchange and dissemination of technical
information for the industry. For additional information on the AES
