New York, NY (September 30, 2019)—Women’s Audio Mission announced it has sold out its upcoming WAMCon New York conference, set to take place at New York University Steinhardt and The Cutting Room Studios on October 18-20, 2019. The event will provide hands-on audio and recording arts training and networking for more than 100 women and gender non-conforming individuals in sound.
WAMCon New York will include workshops with producers and engineers including four-time Grammy-winning engineer Leslie Ann Jones, Sylvia Massy (Tool, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Simone Torres (Sia, Cardi B), Gloria Kaba (Beyoncé, Kanye West), Jennifer DeCilveo (Andra Day, Beth Ditto), mastering engineers Kim Rosen (Aimee Mann, Bonnie Raitt) and Emily Lazar (Dolly Parton, David Bowie) and podcast producers/engineers Chiquita Paschal (Uncivil, Another Round) and Haley Shaw (Gimlet).
WAMCon kicks off on Friday evening (10/18) with a discussion with Leslie Ann Jones and an “Engineering Prince” panel with four of Prince’s engineers who happen to be female—Sylvia Massy, Susan Rogers, Lisa Chamblee, and Peggy McCreary.
“We launched WAMCon in 2017 to bring our award-winning training across the country, connect women and gender non-conforming people to the top pros in the industry, and give them unique access to some of the most iconic audio production spaces in the world,” said WAM executive director Terri Winston. “We are beyond thrilled to bring WAMCon to NYU and The Cutting Room Studios and we have some super exciting surprise venues that will be announced soon.”
The event is sponsored by Dolby Laboratories, Spotify, The Recording Academy, Shure, Eventide, Universal Audio, Epidemic Sound and others.
