This year’s Keynote Speaker is Alex U. Case. Case is Associate Professor of Sound Recording Technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. In addition to full time undergraduate and graduate teaching, Case has presented dozens of invited lectures and master classes on audio, acoustics, and education across the U.S. and internationally. His research and professional activities focus on the technical foundations, creative motivations, and aesthetic merits of recording and signal processing techniques used in multitrack production. Widely published, Case is an author, with over 100 articles in journals and industry trade publications, entries in the Grove Dictionary of American Music, and two titles with Focal Press. He is also President Elect of the AES. His keynote address is entitled “Intuition, Rebellion, Courage, and Chance – Historic Moments of Creative Signal Processing That Resonate to This Day.”
Artists learn, in part, by imitating those who came before them, but they succeed by finding their own voice. Audio artistry is no different. Recording engineers are influenced by the recordings they admire, Keeping up with the advances in audio is a full time job. A glance at the rich schedule of events that fill the Technical Program here at the 140th AES International Convention confirms: we always have so much to learn, to discover, and to master. Technology and craft are always in flux, presenting audio engineers with opportunities for newer, faster, and better. Some advances are fleeting—doomed to fade—but others become industry touchstones. Learning from the ear-grabbing sonic inventions that came before us, we can be better prepared should audio fate drop-in on our recording session. Let your search for better recording and mixing techniques be informed by these key moments in sound recording history.
