The AES Mexico 2016 Conference, held in concurrence with Sound:Check Xpo, is set for March 13-15 in Mexico City. It will feature Master Class presentations, educational workshops, listening experiences and more. AES President John Krivit will offer an address on March 13 titled “From Student to Professional: Strategies and Best Practices for Matriculating into Your Audio Career.”
In this session, Krivit will share tried and true methods for achieving a foothold in the audio industry, and how industry trends can help shape the way to finding jobs and setting up a successful career in professional audio.
Additional opening day sessions include “Line Arrays vs. Conventional Systems: Adjustment and Optimization” with Fernando Guzmán, and “The Challenges of Mixing a Live Band” with José Rivera.
Day 2 events for the AES Mexico Conference begin with a workshop titled “The Art of Equalizing Without the First EQ” with recording, mixing, live sound and electroacoustic systems engineer Andres Millan featuring several critical listening and analysis examples. These will be followed by “Loudness From a Monitoring Perspective” with Thomas Lund, and closing out the day, “Saving Rock & Roll” with engineer/producer Erin Tonkon.
The final day of the conference will hold three additional events: An opening workshop by César Lamschtein titled “Mix Procedures. Staying Inspired and Reactive”; A presentation on “Classical Music Recording on Location: Challenges and Rewards” by Marcela Zorro; and a tutorial on “DRC (Digital Room Correction)” hosted by Mauricio Gargel.
“It is an honor to represent the AES at the largest Latin American professional audio event of the year, and to address the very active and vibrant community of professionals in this region on an international scale,” says Krivit. “Furthermore, to offer a focus on students—and everyone in the industry still building their career path—reinforces the goals of the Audio Engineering Society to unite audio engineers, artists, scientists and students worldwide through education and the distribution of knowledge throughout the industry. It is because of events such as the AES Mexico Conference that Latin America is our fastest-growing region.”
