Nashville, TN (March 14, 2013)—The Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo has been rescheduled for May 14th and 15th at the Rocketown Event Center.
Presented by the AES Nashville Section in conjunction with the AES and designed to share the expertise of audio pros with home studio owners, musicians, songwriters, producers and engineers, NRW+E 2013 will feature presentations by industry pros, exhibits by audio gear manufacturers and an opening night reception.
“Attendees and exhibitors have been enthusiastic about the new timing for NRW+E 2013,” said event chair Jim Kaiser, now to immediately precede the AudioMasters Benefit Golf Tournament. “Many already participate in the AudioMasters, and had participated in Mix Nashville, which previously occupied the time slot. Tying AES Nashville’s events together in the same week will maximize these visitors’ time in town. We look forward to working with all of our presenters, exhibitors and sponsors, to make this the best-ever event in the Nashville Recording Workshop series.”
The AudioMasters (www.theaudiomasters.org), now in its 16th year, is also hosted by AES Nashville, bringing audio engineers and manufacturers to Music City for a good time on the golf course, and more importantly, to raise funds for the Nashville Engineer Relief Fund—a non-profit corporation begun by AES Nashville to lend assistance to area audio pros in times of crisis and need.
“We started Mix Nashville five years ago to bring a professional audio event to a town that eats, sleeps and breathes music,” said Tom Kenny, editor of Mix magazine. “We had a good run, and we were proud to partner with the AES Nashville Engineer Relief Fund golf tournament in what became a true Audio Week in Nashville. Now, we are equally proud to lend support to the AES Nashville Section’s Nashville Recording Workshop + Expo, as it continues to grow as a one-of-a-kind audio event.”
“Last year’s NRW+E truly jelled,” Kaiser added. “The insights detailed in the Production, Engineering and Songwriting/Publishing tracks provided ample learning opportunities for every attendee, whatever their primary interests. Our special focus on live presentations, including in-depth, project profiles by Keb Mo and Beth Neilsen Chapman, was particularly well received. Rocketown proved itself an outstanding venue, and our attendees were informed, entertained and inspired.”
Kristian Bush, one-half of the award-winning super-duo, Sugarland, will present the keynote address to launch NRW + E 2013 on May 14th. The full program schedule for NRW+E 2013 is available online.
“Music is always in the air in Nashville,” Kaiser concludes, “but the town is particularly beautiful in May, and spring will be in the air as well. We have discounts and early-bird rates for students and members of many professional organizations, so adjust your calendars accordingly.”
