The Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo is set to take place on May 14 and May 15 at the Rocketown Event Center in downtown Nashville. Presented by the AES Nashville Section in conjunction with the AES, and designed to share the expertise of audio pros with home studio owners, musicians, songwriters, producers and engineers, NRW+E 2013 will feature presentations by industry pros, exhibits by audio gear manufacturers and an opening night reception. Panelists who are slated to appear include Jonell Polansky, Chris Mara, Chris Estes, Bil VornDick, Richard Adler, Lynn Fuston, Glenn Meadows, Kristian Bush, Tom Tapley, and Steve Marcantonio, among others.
An open exhibitor area also offers attendees hands-on product showcases and demos, along with networking opportunities with audio professionals from around the country. The week will conclude with AES Nashville’s annual AudioMasters golf tournament, which is now in it’s 16th year in Music City.
This 4th edition of the Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo will feature Sugarland’s Kristian Bush as this year’s keynote speaker to kick off the event. Along with longtime collaborator, producer/engineer Tom Tapley, Bush will highlight the role of technology in the creative process as it pertains to his experience as a singer, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and personal studio owner. Events over the next two days will cover topics ranging from acoustics and home studio issues, to business and songwriting, and common production techniques for getting the most out of a selective studio budget.
Regarding previous NRW+E events, Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo event chair Jim Kaiser states, “The insights detailed in the Production, Engineering and Songwriting/Publishing tracks last year provided ample learning opportunities for every attendee, whatever their primary interests. Last year’s NRW+E truly jelled, and Rocketown proved itself an outstanding venue, and our attendees were informed, entertained and inspired. Our special focus on live presentations, including in-depth, project profiles by Keb Mo and Beth Nielsen Chapman, was particularly well received, and this year’s presenters are equally exciting.
“Many attendees and exhibitors already participate in the AudioMasters golf tournament. Tying AES Nashville’s events together in the same week makes sense for the audio production community as a whole. We look forward to working with all of our presenters, exhibitors and sponsors, to make this the best-ever event in the Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo series.”
