AES New York 2015 Presenter or Author

Thomas Mitchell

Thomas Mitchell

Primary Affiliation: University of Miami - Coral Gables, FL, USA

TOM MITCHELL was smitten with audio, the saxophone, and jazz by age 12. After studies in Studio Music & Jazz at the University of Miami, Mitchell became immersed in a vibrant Haitian music scene in Miami. This led him to Port-au-Prince and finally New York. While in New York, he worked first as an instrumentalist and then, after studies at the Institute of Audio Research in NYC, as an engineer and producer.
Tom was staff engineer at Data Bank Studio in NYC for 6 years, then co-founded and ran K Studio in Brooklyn from 1993-2001.
Through the 1980s and 90s he worked extensively in NYC studios, on both sides of the glass. Having the green light to create at such a high level, in company with some of the best in the world, was intoxicating.
After 12 years playing and arranging horns as a member of Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band, Mitchell felt an urge to further his fascination with the mathematical underpinnings of everything, and to interact with the next generation. At present, Tom is happily pursuing the Master of Science in Music Engineering Technology (GMuE) degree at the University of Miami Frost School of Music. He wants to thank everyone at UM, particularly Professors Colby Leider, Will Pirkle, and Christopher Bennett, for their support and guidance.

Tom continues to tour regularly with the legendary Tabou Combo and produce emerging artists in South Florida.
Other performance and recording credits have included Little Feat, Paul Simon, Brian Wilson, Joe Walsh, Clint Black, Slide Hampton, Terence Blanchard, Douglas Cuomo, Frank London, David First, La Troupe Makandal, BelO, Magnum Band, Zèklè, Mini All-Stars, Original Shleu Shleu, and TACAJ.

He is honored to have been offered this first opportunity to present a bit of his work to the AES.
