John Strawn, Chairman of the 117th AES Convention, has announced a day-long event titled “Surround Live II—More Surround!” devoted exclusively to live multi-channel surround.
Scheduled for Wednesday, October 27, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the Symposium will be held in the Julia Morgan Ballroom of the Merchants Exchange Building, 465 California Street. “Not since the introduction of the Compact Disk has a new sound recording format made so dramatic an impact on the industry,” Strawn says. “Symposium Chair Fredrick J.Ampel of Technology Visions has developed an outstanding panel which will explore the many facets contributing to Surround’s on-going technological and commercial success.”
Panelists include David Claringbold, Sydney Opera House, Australia; Kurt Graffy, Arup Acoustics Dave Haydon, Outboard Electronics; Randy Hoffner, ABC Television; Mark Hood, Echo Park Studios, Bloomington IN; Jonathan Laney-Talaske, Chicago, IL.; Michael Leahy, EGR Software and Riccardo Mazza, School of High Musical Specialization, Saluzzo, Italy will participate in the interactive workshop. The event is a continuation of a popular AES Surround Live event held for the first time at the 2003 Convention in NYC.
