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

 — 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 The Richard C. Heyser Memorial Lecture series, hosted by the AES Technical Council at each convention, honors the extensive contributions to the Society made by Heyser, who was widely known for his ability to communicate new and complex technical ideas with great clarity and patience. As part of the Convention’s Special Events presentations, the Heyser Lecture is open to all AES Dublin attendees.
