Day Two of the AES New York Convention offers another unique array of Special Event offerings. The day begins with the AES Platinum Latin Producers and Engineers Panel, followed by a lunchtime keynote by Richard Jensen on new digital technologies such as Blockchain, Smart Contracts, Music Metadata, and the Creative Passport. Tuesday afternoon keeps tracking with presentations such as “Al Schmitt – On the Record”, “Mastered by Bob Ludwig: An Exploration of his Career and Techniques”, and “The P&E Wing Presents: Getting Paid and Credited – Lessons in Self Preservation” with multi-GRAMMY Award producer/mixer Jeff Balding, GRAMMY nominated guitarist/songwriter Danny Kortchmar and GRAMMY Award-winning bassist and Musicians Hall of Fame inductee Will Lee. The day’s Special Events conclude with Capitol Studios’ Paula Salvatore and Candace Stewart of EastWest Studios presenting “Music Mavens: Managing Legacy Studios in Challenging Times.”

 

Day Three brings another set of in-depth presentations to the stage, beginning with a lunchtime keynote by recording and mix engineer Prince Charles Alexander (The Notorious B.I.G., P. Diddy, Destiny’s Child, Aretha Franklin), moderated by Paul “Willie Green” Womack. Following is a special Studio Stories event – “Remastering Jackson Browne’s Running on Empty” with moderator Ken Reeves of Universal Music Group. This panel features mastering engineers Reuben Cohen, Gavin Lurssen and Ron McMaster, as well as guitarist Danny Kortchmar, who served as lead guitarist on the original album and contributed vocal and songwriting skills. Another session of heavy-hitters follow with the panel “METAlliance – The Mission” moderated by Jim Pace and featuring panelists Chuck Ainlay, Ed Cherney, Frank Filipetti, George Massenburg, Elliott Scheiner and Al Schmitt. The day is capped of by sound reinforcement pioneer John Meyer of Meyer Sound Labs in his Heyser Lecture “Taking the Room Out of the Loudspeaker: New Tools for Transparent Reproduction.“ In his presentation, Meyer will touch on benchmarks in the quest for linear sound amplification, including the early Glyph large-horn systems, the Grateful Dead’s “Wall of Sound.”.

 

On the final day of the AES New York 2018 Convention, first up is a look at “Platinum Mastering — Past, Present, Future: Changes in Audio Mastering Technology/Aesthetics,” with mastering engineers Bob Ludwig, Andres A. Mayo and Ron McMaster. A lunchtime keynote follows with producer, mixer and songwriter Greg Wells (Adele, OneRepublic, Keith Urban) and in the special event series, legendary GRAMMY Award nominee Michael Beinhorn and GRAMMY Award winner Frank Filipetti offer their take on “Cracking the Creativity Process”.

The Audio Engineering Society, founded in 1948, has grown to become the preeminent international organization unifying audio engineers, creative artists, scientists and students worldwide by promoting advances in audio and disseminating new knowledge and research. Now, in celebrating its 70th year, the AES continues to forge ahead with new and exciting opportunities and offerings for its members and the audio engineering community worldwide, serving as the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio science and technology and hosting a forum through which individuals continue to reach higher levels of audio excellence and understanding.

 

AES President David Scheirman shares the following message with the AES Membership and the entire professional audio engineering community:

 

2018 marks the 70th year of existence of The Audio Engineering Society. When we consider what that really means, it’s a remarkable achievement. As industry, research, academia and technical applications are all drawn more closely together, the Society’s mission remains a constant: to promote the science and practice of audio by bringing leading people and ideas together.

 

The first AES meeting took place on February 17, 1948, at New York City’s RCA Victor recording studios. An original volunteer executive committee of five individuals (J.D. Colvin, C.J. LeBel, C.G. McProud, N.C. Pickering and C.A. Rackey) worked to assist the young professional society in establishing its first ‘constitution,’ now known as the Society’s Bylaws. Remarkably durable, the Audio Engineering Society’s Bylaws have guided our corporate governance efforts now for seven decades.

 

70 years ago, the audio industry – and indeed our entire culture – was very different. In 1948, technology advances in the news included the LP (Long Playing) record and the transistor radio, and the new-fangled television set was just starting to become more common in private homes. Things we now take for granted were surprising the world and turning heads: the Porsche automobile company was founded that year, the first Random Access Storage Device became available, and a new swimming suit style known as the bikini was making a splash. The Soviets were blockading West Berlin, and Israel was being established as an independent state.

 

Within our industry, it was noted that ‘engineers engaged in the field of audio are generally agreed that there is a definite advantage to a professional society as a means of disseminating information and promoting intelligent study of the problems pertaining to their interests, but there has been considerable doubt that their field has been covered adequately.’ So stated the March 1948 issue of Audio Engineering. This was the reason for establishing the then-named Organizing Committee for the Formation of the Audio Engineering Society. These early pioneers focused on their common interests when coming together as a group. Public address systems, studio design and use, tape and wire recording, and high-quality home reproduction were key areas of interest.

 

Today, 70 years hence from that first meeting, audio professionals still gather to discuss, learn about, and advance the art and practice of these disciplines, along with many more. Emerging technologies and the results of audio research continue to be highlighted in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, historical developments in the field from those seven decades can be sourced within the Society’s online E-Library, and the new AES Live: Videos series brings a new dimension to learning about audio. 

 

With good fortune (knock on neodymium!), many current members and a host of today’s professional audio and software companies who proudly support the AES will be on hand to help celebrate the Audio Engineering Society’s 100th Anniversary, a momentous event to look forward to in 2048.

 

Scheirman will address attendees of the AES New York 2018 International Convention during the Opening Ceremonies, taking place Wednesday, October 17, 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm at the Javits Convention Center. 

 

The Opening Ceremonies and other Special Events presentations at the AES New York 2018 Convention, including the keynote address by Thomas Dolby and Heyser Lecture by John Meyer, are open to all AES New York 2018 attendees. Onsite registration for AES New York 2018 remains open throughout the convention.
