New York, NY (February 11, 2020)—The Audio Engineering Society’s first Academy event of the year, the AES Academy at the 2020 NAMM Show, reportedly hosted a sold-out crowd of attendees for four days of programming designed especially for AES members and those looking to advance their careers.
Taking place January 16–19 in Anaheim, CA, AES Academy sessions offered insight into live sound, recording and audio education, as well as networking events and more.
Offering an in-depth educational look at the latest production tools and techniques, AES Academy hosted over 100 sessions featuring expert-led instruction and discussions on line arrays, entertainment wireless technology, in-ear monitoring, recording studio technology and applications, microphones: studio and live, electronic dance music, sound system measurement and optimization, sound for houses of worship, audio education, audio careers, audio science and technology, and a popular series of hands-on live console training events. Additional activities included a diversity and inclusion mixer and an audio educators’ reception. An AES member appreciation event brought together dozens of AES members and invited guests to meet and network with peers. The AES also hosted an exhibition floor booth during the four days of the NAMM Show, offering information about AES activities and benefits and an opportunity to register or renew memberships onsite.
Looking ahead, the AES next hosts the AES Worship Sound Academy in Nashville, TN, March 10–11, and the AES Vienna 148th International AES Convention, May 25–28.
For the AES Worship Sound Academy, taking place March 10–11, 2020, at the Johnson Center on the campus of Belmont University in Nashville, TN., the event will examine specific elements of audio for houses of worship and related productions, covering everything from fundamentals of sound, to mixing for services and events, outreach through streaming media, and present featured gear exhibits showcasing the latest technologies. Both days will also feature dedicated times for onsite lunch (included with registration) and to browse and network in the exhibition area.
