AES PNW Section Meeting Report
November 15, 1996
PNW Section's Wrap-Up of the 101st Convention in L.A.
After an officer's dinner meeting at the Lake Washington Grillhouse and
Taproom (in attendance: Dan Mortensen, Gary Louie, Steve Macatee, Bob
Moses, Barry James), 4 others joined the group for a re-hash of the recent
101st AES convention in Los Angeles, November 8-11.
Member Rick Fisher was especially impressed with the History of Mastering
workshop. Gary Louie had a collection of trinkets from the show (T-shirts,
CDs, pins, balls, etc) and programs from the opening ceremony, the NARAS
Grammy recording Forum, and the rest of the convention. Most agreed that
the weirdest item seen must have been the J-Con audio plug to AC extension
cord adapters. Bob Moses was impressed with the multi-channel audio
progress evidenced as he hosted a suite for his new company (PAVO).
Those who could not attend got a taste of what happened, and those who
were there heard about a few things they couldn't get to.
A low turnout, but the officers got some organizational business done and
everyone had some food and drink and audio talk.
