As part of the 125th Audio Engineering Society convention, the organization will be providing attendees with the opportunity for “behind the scenes” visits to several Bay Area centers of significant audio development and innovation.
These include Dolby Laboratories, George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic and the Sony Computer Entertainment America operation.
These were arranged by AES Technical Tours committee, chaired by David Bowles.
“As a producer, engineer and principal of Swineshead Productions, a classical recording company, David Bowles is keenly aware of the varied interests of AES members,” said committee co-chair John Strawn, who added that attendees interested in tours should line up early. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
The convention takes place 2–5 October at San Francisco’s Moscone Center. Tour events, dates and locations are at the AES site.
Other venues on the tour itinerary include recording studios and technical and music schools. The tours will take place during the first three days of the convention.
