The Audio Engineering Society’s 128th Convention in London takes place at the Novotel Convention Centre in Hammersmith, with conferences May 22-25 and exhibitions May 23-25. The AES announces that research scientist Masataka Goto, who leads the Media Interaction Group at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan, will be the keynote speaker at the Convention’s opening ceremony on May 22 at 12:30 p.m. local time.
The AES also announces that Sir George Martin (pictured) will accept an Honorary Membership from the AES on May 25 at 2:30 p.m. before introducing one of the afternoon seminars. All visitors to the AES Convention are welcome to attend.
“The AES is delighted to present George Martin with this award,” says AES Executive Director Roger Furness. “The ranks of those who have previously received an AES Honorary Membership include Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez, Walt Disney and Herbert von Karajan, and I can think of no finer addition to their number than Sir George Martin. We’re also excited to welcome Masataka Goto to London to deliver the keynote address at the opening ceremony. We expect a good time will be had by all who can attend.”
