Students and faculty from the Music Production & Recording Technology (MPRT) and Collaborative Audio Arts (CAA) programs traveled to New York City to attend the Audio Engineering Society (AES) Convention during fall break. They had the opportunity to participate in workshops and presentations with the latest wares in audio production.
“I really enjoyed my time at the AES convention! It was my first one, but I got to meet and learn from many great people, such as the founder of Austrian Audio, Martin Seidel, and mixing engineer Michael Brauer, and so many more individuals. Can’t wait for the next one!”
– Adaugo Ejekwu ’23 (Bachelor of Music in Music Production & Recording Technology)
“It was encouraging to realize that after 3 1/2 years here at SU, I was able to explore, listen and have discussions at AES and comprehend everything that was said to me. My education up until now served me in making friends and connections, and allowed me to play with some cutting-edge gear!”
– Logan Huber ’23 (Bachelor of Music in Music Production & Recording Technology)
“It was amazing to meet people in the industry! I got a lot of good insight on where the audio production industry is going, and went to some cool talks with professionals to sharpen my skills. It was also nice to see all the gear on the showroom floor and be able to ask people questions and see the gear in person. I can’t wait to go again next year!”
– Wayne Romero ’24 (Bachelor of Music in Music Production & Recording Technology)
“It was great to be back at the convention after three years. The most featured advance in audio was immersive audio, especially Dolby Atmos. A lot of speaker companies showcased their multi speaker setups also. The AES convention is a great event for students to see and learn about new audio technology, network with professionals, and enjoy seeing NYC.”
– Director and Associate Professor of Music Production & Recording Technology Golder O’Neill ’92, M.M.E.
The convention was not held in person for the past two years because of the COVID-19 pandemic. SU students participated in AES’s educational fair and were grateful for being able to attend the convention this year.
