About the Event
COVID-19 has turned much of the pro audio industry upside down, inside out and in many cases, ground any normal activity to a crawl or even a complete halt.
We’ve invited audio professionals to tell a story about how they are thriving, looking after themselves as we endure the pandemic, or even just an uplifting story about something they have participated in that gave them energy.
Doug McClement, LiveWire Remote Recorders; Jeff Wolpert, Desert Fish Studios/University of Toronto; John “Beetle” Bailey, Driveshed, Hawksley Workman, Canadian musician, Roberto Capretta – CBC Audio, GGGarth Richardson – Canadian Record Producer are on-board.
- What’s changed?
- What’s being adopted that you thought you’d never see?
- What are your colleagues doing that surprised you?
- What direction has audio changed?
- What did you repair / fix / buid . complete / that you didn’t think you’d ever get to?
- Did you finally let go of something in your cleanup that no longer “sparkled joy”?
- What sort of solution would you offer someone setting up for a new career in audio?
- What’s next? Collaboration? masks in the studio? built-in pop filters?
- What do you do once you get a vaccine?
Tonight’s meeting is being streamed on YouTube, with an opportunity for you to interact via Chat.
A well deserved topic indeed
Good Morning AES,
Will we get the Zoom link later ?
After 40 years owning Trebas Institute
(Toronto and Montreal), and graduating 20,000 students, with over a dozen Grammy Awards, and the college nominated forTEC Award “Outstanding Institutional Achievement: Recording School/Program”, I, David Leonard, sold the colleges to private international university, Global University Systems, with 80,000 students annually in 40 campus locations worldwide. Programs include Audio Engineering, Sound Design, Music Business, Film/TV Production. One of our guest lecturers was my dear friend and music legend, Bruce Swedien. I spoke with his family last Sunday, Nov15, knowing of his long term illness. He passed away the next day, Nov16,2020. He won many Grammys as recording engineer for Michael Jackson “Thriller” “The Wiz”, Barbra Streisand, Four Seasons, Sarah Vaughn, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Chicago Symphony, Sir Paul McCartney, Jennifer Lopez, film music for Spielberg’s The Color Purple, The Chi Lites, Dinah Washington, and more. A 2 page article appears in current November issue of La Scena Musicale magazine about my life and career in audio music biz starting with my first recording of my piano performance recorded in 1949 with Recording engineer John Bradley, Chief Quality Control Engineer for record pressing plants Compo and RCA; he also worked with the Berliner brothers on the development of the phonograph record in the 1930’s in Montreal.My 1949 recording was direct to disc, since pro tape was not available yet.
A few years ago, I spent a day with former AES President and current Director of George Lucas Skywalker Ranch studios in Northern California,
Leslie Ann Jones.. a very informative and memorable experience.
I’m currently writing my memoir – a life in music biz and education.
Working through this pandemic has been tough. I’ve always prided myself on finding the silver lining in every situation. In this case our silver lining starts with artists in need of help to make music and sound and technology stepping up to give us tools to help artists.
It’s a combination of good people and good music and the mentality of”Where there’s a will there’s a way”
Is there a place to register for this event?
