The Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio will present the TEC Awards Music and Sound Auction on eBay, set to begin on October 21 and continue through November 2, 2004. The online auction will coincide with the 20th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, to be held on Saturday, October 30 at the San Francisco Marriott.
The online auction will be managed by H.E.A.R. (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers) a nonprofit organization dedicated to informing musicians and the public about the prevention of hearing impairment in the music environment. Proceeds from the auction will benefit H.E.A.R.®, as well as the Sound Partners™ campaign of the House Ear Institute in Los Angeles, a hearing conservation program co-founded by the Mix Foundation in 1997.
Auction items will include pro audio equipment (recording devices, microphones, loudspeakers, mixing consoles, amplifiers, etc.), guitars and other musical instruments, music memorabilia, photographic art, and a variety of special gift items, including hotel and spa packages. Previews of the items will be posted on the auction homepage: http://members.ebay.com/aboutme/hear as they become available.
