Recording and Production Track Featured at 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention
For Release: October 16, 2013
— Music recording and production has always been prominently featured at the AES Convention, where engineers and record producers converge to trade secrets, compare notes and learn from each other —
New York, NY — The 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention (Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City) will feature a track of events focused on Recording and Production. These panels, which run throughout all four days of the Convention, bring together top engineers and producers eager to share their insights and knowledge with the larger music production community. From drum programming to mixing tricks to how to listen, come learn from the pros, see what gear they’re using, and hear what it can sound like.
The AES Convention has historically been the single best place in the world to find valuable information on audio technology and applications, and the 2013 AES Convention will have more of it than ever. Each of the four days of the show is filled, from 9 a.m. into the evening, with a wide range of sessions. Technical knowledge is shared in sessions and workshops like “AC Power and Grounding,” “Signal Processing” and “Compression.” Recording, mixing and production techniques are addressed in sessions and special events like “Producing Across Generations: New Challenges, New Solutions—Making Records for Next to Nothing in the 21st Century.” Acoustics are discussed in “Spatial Audio,” “Digital Room Correction—Does it Really Work?” and “Room Acoustics.” The business of record production is addressed at Jimmy Jam’s “The Current and Future Direction of the Recording Process from an Artist, Engineer, and Producer’s Perspective.” Need a little historical perspective? Try stopping by “Restoring Peggy Lee’s Capitol Records Album Jump for Joy” or “Inside Abbey Road 1967—Photos from the Sgt. Pepper Sessions.” On Sunday, Young Guru will present his lecture and demo series, “Era of the Engineer,” which examines the recent emergence of a new generation of do-it-yourself engineers, analyzing and demonstrating what it means for the culture at large. Finally, get a bit of Zen-tech at “A Holistic Approach to Crossover Systems and Equalization for Loudspeakers.”
“There really is something for everyone at the Recording and Production Track events at this year’s AES Convention,” states AES Executive Director Bob Moses. “And since there are more people than ever before working at recording music, that’s saying a lot. Every year, we try to include as much as we can about technologies and techniques, both new and classic, subdivided into highly focused workshops – sessions and seminars aimed at getting meaningful information across in an intimate fashion. These kinds of events are often the favorites of many attendees, and that’s because they get right to the heart of what almost everyone in the organization is about: making music.”
The Audio Engineering Society was formed in 1948 and now counts over 14,000 members throughout the U.S., Latin America, Europe, Japan and the Far East. The organization serves as the pivotal force in the exchange and dissemination of technical information for the industry. Currently, its members are affiliated with more than 75 AES professional sections and more than 95 AES student sections around the world. Section activities may include guest speakers, technical tours, demonstrations and social functions. Through local AES section events, members experience valuable opportunities for professional networking and personal growth. For additional information visit http://www.aes.org.
