SANTA MONICA, Calif. (October 1, 2014) — The GRAMMY SoundTables®, presented by The Recording Academy® Producers & Engineers Wing® at this year's 137th AES Convention, will be held on Saturday, Oct. 11, from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. in room 403AB at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown L.A. This year's event is titled "Songs That Move The Needle," and it will feature multi-talented production professionals Alex Da Kid, No I.D., Michael Brauer, Niko Bolas and Don Was, sharing their unique experiences in the art of music making. GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/engineer Ed Cherney will act as moderator.
Record production is a hybrid art encompassing vision, musicianship, well-honed instincts and the bottom-line ability to get a project over the finish line. When these elements combine, the result can be a milestone recording. At this GRAMMY SoundTables special event, five multitalented, cross-genre hitmakers will debate the who, what, when, where and why of songs that have left an indelible imprint.
Maureen Droney, Managing Director of the P&E Wing, stated, "We are excited about this year's SoundTables event, which features diverse and distinctive music creators providing contrasting perspectives and also uncovering common ground. Their discussion will span genres and generations, offering attendees inspiring and entertaining insights into the art of record production. It is sure to be valuable and thought-provoking for all involved."
Additionally, the Producers & Engineers Wing will be hosting the P&E Wing ReCharge Lounge at AES137. Located in the Demo Room Concourse, the ReCharge Lounge is open to all AES badge-holders and features charging stations for your devices, bottled water and snacks, and comfortable seating away from the convention's crowded exhibit floor.
