Oral History Project

Hello AES members,

Here in New York, we're getting ready for the upcoming 131st AES Convention, October 20-23, and beginning this past Sunday we launched a special treat to get you ready for the convention.

If you have a smart phone in the U.S. or Canada and can text 'AES' to 757575, then for the next 50 days you'll receive a short, special video from the AES Oral History Series. Thanks to AES Sustaining Member, Thwapr, these videos will be viewable on any mobile device, on Facebook, and on Twitter.

Imagine hearing history direct from audio industry legends such as Ray Dolby, Robert Langevin, Phil Ramone, Bob Ludwig, John Meyer, Les Paul, Edgar Villchur, Neil Muncy, and many, many more. The list of individuals is extraordinary and their contributions to our industry have changed the pro-audio world.

Regardless of your interest in audio, whether it's recording or research, broadcasting or live sound, I'm certain that you'll find their stories captivating. I hope you'll join us for the next 50 days of audio tales and at the 131st AES Convention, as well.


Jim Anderson
Chair of the 131st AES Convention

AES Educational Foundation Announces 2011 Awards

Emil Torick

Emil Torick Scholarship Introduced

The Audio Engineering Society Educational Foundation Board of Directors and president Don Puluse have announced the recipients of the 2011 AES Educational Grants for Graduate Studies in Audio Engineering and related fields. President Puluse has also announced the introduction of a new scholarship, named in honor of Emil Torick, founding member and president of the AES Educational Foundation since its inception in 1984 through 2009.

The AES Educational Foundation was established in 1984 to encourage the entry of talented students into the profession of audio engineering and related fields. Grants for graduate studies with emphasis on audio topics are awarded annually. Recipients are selected on the basis of demonstrated talent and achievement, and on faculty recommendation. Since its inception, the AESEF has presented 160 grants at 60 universities worldwide, totaling over seven hundred thousand dollars. Grants have been made possible by contributions from AES, Inc., the estate of John K. Hilliard, JBL, Inc., the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio and the families of John Eargle, David Smith and Emil Torick. We have also received support from other benefactors in memory of deceased AES colleagues.

You can learn all about this year's awardees in our press release or on the AES Educational Foundation website.
