AES Dublin Excites, Educates and Illuminates

Stefania Serafin, professor in sonic interaction design at Aalborg University Copenhagen, delivers the Keynote Speech

— Four days of innovative presentations and events providing insights into the full range of professional audio topics and technologies filled the Audio Engineering Society’s first Dublin convention —

The Audio Engineering Society’s 146th International Pro Audio Convention in Dublin, Ireland drew to a close on March 23, wrapping up four days of audio science and education that drew attendees from 47 countries to Europe’s premier annual professional audio event. “It was a pleasure to bring the AES convention to Dublin for the very first time,” commented Convention Co-Chair and Dublin resident Enda Bates, “and an excellent way to kick off the formation of the new AES Ireland regional section in style. It was also great to see a more diverse range of presenters and topics, something which was specifically highlighted by many attendees as a welcome development.” 

 

The Convention content was packed with options, notes Co-Chair Ben Kok, with 200 individual Workshops, Tutorials, Paper and Poster presentations and Special Events held in parallel across the four days of AES Dublin in seven auditoriums in the Dublin Convention Centre. Hosting top minds in audio from around the world, this year’s convention featured the AES Heyser Memorial lecture “Learning to Listen” by industry innovator and digital reverb pioneer David Griesinger and the keynote address – arranged by AES Dublin’s third co-chair, Mariana Lopez – “Inclusive Sonic Interactions” presented by Aalborg University Copenhagen Professor Stefania Serafin. 

 

“For topics like cathedral acoustics and spatial electroacoustic music and education, there was a link between the technical program, off-site and special events,” Kok elaborates, “Overall, immersive/3D sound and spatial audio had a strong presence at the convention, covering both sonic capture as well as reproduction through loudspeakers or headphones.”

 

Playing a key role in the Convention’s immersive content, Co-Chair Lopez was actively involved in the program including having the “true honor” of chairing the panel “The Present and Future of Audio for Film and Television,” which brought together industry notables Howard Bargroff, Anna Bertmark, Emma Butt and Fiona Cruickshank. 

 

The immersive audio emphasis was continued into AES Dublin’s innovative hands-on sessions, part of the Convention’s dedicated student programing including the bustling Education and Career fair and the student recording and design competitions. Student attendance was typically strong for AES Dublin, a harbinger of future Society leadership as evidenced by former Student Members who attended AES Dublin as professional Members and participated in paper presentations and workshops, along with AES Dublin planning.

 

The theme of diversity and inclusion was brought to the forefront of the Convention with Co-Chair Lopez’s AES Dublin Opening Ceremonies challenge for support and participation of the Society’s initiatives, and in the AES Diversity & Inclusion Committee’s Town Hall dialog, which she moderated. Questions about how the Society moves forward towards equality, noted Lopez, “are ultimately about who we are, and who we hope to be.” 

 

As AES Dublin concluded, the site selection of Vienna, Austria, was announced for AES Europe in 2020 (May 25 – 28). Next on the AES Convention calendar is the upcoming AES New York International Pro Audio Convention (October 16 – 19, 2019).

 

Research Papers and Engineering Briefs presented at AES Dublin are available in the AES E-Library (a free benefit for AES members).

Digital Reverb Pioneer Griesinger to Deliver Prestigious Heyser Lecture at AES Dublin

David Griesinger to give the Heyser Memorial Lecture, titled

— Griesinger to share his experience and insights in the Heyser Memorial Lecture titled
“Learning to Listen” at the AES Dublin International Pro Audio Convention —

Distinguished scientist, researcher and audio engineer David Griesinger will deliver the Heyser Memorial Lecture at the AES Dublin International Pro Audio Convention. The presentation, titled “Learning to Listen,” is scheduled for the evening of March 21 at the Convention Centre in Dublin, Ireland. “This talk describes a few of the experiences I have had working with artists and musicians that taught me to hear what makes their art work,” shares Griesinger. “These experiences changed my life, and I hope that describing them will help others understand some of the amazing abilities of our ears and brains to detect, separate, and ultimately decode sonic information.” 

Griesinger’s 50-plus years of experience in the professional audio industry covers a range of disciplines and fields of study, from product design and measurement to scientific research on sound modeling and perception. He is well known as the developer of iconic reverb algorithms and processors while Chief Scientist at Lexicon and is both an AES Fellow and an AES Silver Award recipient. "David Griesinger is one of the most influential researchers of our times,” says Steve Hutt, AES Technical Council Chair. “It's hard to imagine that there is anyone who listens to music that hasn't experienced the application of his pioneering work on reverberation. It's an honor to have David join us in Dublin and share experiences and insights that have informed his career." A full description of Griesinger’s lecture and his bio can be found in the AES Dublin online program pages at www.aeseurope.com

The Richard C.

AES Dublin Convention Keynote Speaker Stefania Serafin to address the sonic Interactions of sound, music and technology in

— Featured Opening Ceremonies keynote addressto set the tone for AES Dublin attendees 

The Audio Engineering Society, celebrating over 70 years of audio science and innovation, is gearing up to host the 146th International Audio Engineering Society Convention, March 20 – 23 at the Convention Centre in Dublin, Ireland. As part of the Opening Ceremonies, Stefania Serafin, professor in sonic interaction design at Aalborg University Copenhagen, will examine the intersection of audio and technology in the address “Inclusive Sonic Interaction.” This presentation, part of the AES Dublin Special Events series, is open to all attendees and will set the stage for four full days of immersion in audio technology and its application. 

Based on her extensive knowledge and research, Serafin will offer insight into the technologies and techniques being used to advance audio and its capabilities in today’s connected world: 

“Sonic interaction design is a fertile field of investigation at the intersection of sound and music computing and interaction design. At Aalborg University I have been designing, together with several collaborators, sonic interactions for different applications, ranging from physics-based simulations of musical instruments and everyday objects, new interfaces for musical expression, cultural heritage, walking and rehabilitation, learning and training, as well as virtual and augmented reality. In this talk I will present an overview of these activities, with a focus on those who contribute to engage a wider and younger audience in sound, music and technology.”

In addition to her design work at Aalborg University, where she leads the multisensory experience lab, Serafin received a PhD from CCRMA, Stanford University in 2004 and is the president of the Sound and Music Computing Association.
