DIRECTIONS to Tuck and Jeremy's house:
 
VIA METRO NORTH RAILROAD:
From Grand Central Station, take a New Haven line Metro North train that stops in Pelham. From Pelham station, the house is a gorgeous 10 minute walk. See walking directions below.***
 
DRIVING from West Side of Manhattan and points South and West:
Take Henry Hudson Pkwy north to Cross County Pkwy east. Follow signs to Exit 9: Hutchinson River Pkwy south. Go one exit on Hutch south to Exit 12: Lincoln Ave. As you exit on the ramp, bear right to a traffic light, and turn right onto Lincoln Ave (at Getty station). Go 0.6 miles, then turn left at Storer Ave, just past a small fenced construction site. Follow Storer Ave around to the right to house number 217, which will be on the left.
 
DRIVING from East Side of Manhattan:
Take FDR Drive north to Madison Ave Bridge. Get onto Deegan Expy north. Exit onto Cross County Pkwy east. Follow directions above as in West Side.
 
DRIVING from points South and East:
Take Whitestone Bridge to Hutchinson River Pkwy. Take Exit 12: Lincoln Ave. Turn left at stop sign to get to traffic light (Mobil station), and turn right onto Lincoln Ave. Go 0.6 miles, then turn left at Storer Ave, just past a small fenced construction site. Follow Storer Ave around to the right to house number 217, which will be on the left.
 
DRIVING from points North:
Get to Hutchinson River Pkwy southbound. Take Exit 12. Follow directions above as in West Side.
 
 
*** WALKING from Pelham Metro North Train Station:
Upon leaving the train in Pelham, find the center stairs near a small waiting room.
(If there's a taxi, about $5 will get you to the studio, if you're not in the mood for a short walk.)
 
By foot, continue out of the station parking area to the first street, Pelhamwood Ave.
Turn left onto Pelhamwood and walk down the hill.
Make the first possible left turn, at the bottom of the hill, onto Highbrook Ave., and immediately go under an underpass.
 
Stay on Highbrook. Walk under another underpass, and get to a traffic light: Lincoln Ave.
Turn right onto Lincoln.
 
You're now walking east on Lincoln. Take the first left turn onto Storer Avenue.  Follow the road until you see a red Honda in a driveway on the left. That is 217 Storer Ave.  Welcome to the picnic!
 
[*Thanks and apologies to Paul Simon]

Past Event: Studio of the Future: 2020—2050

John La Grou

John La Grou

April 3, 2014 at 7:00 pm

Location: NYU Clive Davis Institue, 194 Mercer Street Studio 510, NYC

Moderated by: Jim Anderson, NYU

Speaker(s): John La Grou, The POW-R Consortium, Millennia Media

A brief look at the evolution of audio electronics, a theory of innovation, and a sweeping vision for the next forty years of audio production technology. Informed by the growth theories of Moore, Cray, and Kurzweil, we project the next forty years of professional audio products, production techniques, and delivery formats.


John La Grou is founder and chair of POW-r Consortium, the world's leading digital-audio bit-length reduction algorithms, used annually on roughly 1/3 of all CDs and audio downloads (licensed by Apple, Avid, etc.). “If you listen to music, you listen to POW-r.”  He is founder and CEO of Millennia Media, a world leader in the design of audio electronics for critical acoustic music. Roughly half of all major Hollywood film scores are recorded via Millennia electronics. Over 50,000 Millennia channels are in use worldwide. Millennia has received 30+ major industry awards and was recently selected by the U.S. Library of Congress to design and manufacture a new generation of archiving electronics for converting the Library's collection of 3 million legacy audio recordings (of every conceivable historic format) onto high resolution digital storage.

Other Business: Come to the Meet and Greet at 6:30. Election results and new officers will be announced.

Location: NYU's Steinhardt Studios 35 West 4th St 6th Floor New York, NY 10003-4595, and the Institute of Audio Research, 64 University Place, Room 33, New York, NY 10003-4595

 Is your entry into the audio workforce imminent? Are you still in an audio-centric program and want to get ahead of your peers? Then attend this meeting and gain insights from those in different areas of the business.

What do people look for in prospective interns? What do they expect interns to walk away with when their internship is finished? Does interning give you an advantage over others when trying to get an assistant position?

If you have already completed an internship, then what do people look for in prospective hires? What is the progression beyond an internship or being an assistant? What skills are emerging as important to have?

The audio business changes regularly. How have things changed over time? How have they stayed the same? What things are not taught in the classroom that can only be learned by actually being involved in the workplace?

If you attend this meeting, you will hear these questions and others addressed. Take notes and bring your CV.   

This meeting will have a joint teleconference link between NYU and the Institute of Audio Research.
