New York, NY, October 8, 2014 — The upcoming 137th Audio Engineering Society Convention, taking place October 9-12, 2014, at the Los Angeles Convention Center, will feature a panel moderated by multi-GRAMMY® winning producer/engineer Jack Joseph Puig (Florence + the Machine, Lady Gaga, U2, others). Titled “Sound Is the Conduit to the Artist Heart,” the panel will take place on Sunday, October 12, from 1:30-3:00 p.m. in Room 404 AB.
Ever since the consumer-branded Yamaha NS-10 speaker became ubiquitous in almost every professional recording studio, the music industry has seen the worlds of professional and consumer audio collide with the goal of creating an ecosystem that allows the professional to make the right creative choices, in order for the translation of the artists’ intent to be fully realized and understood by the consumer. Now that “mobile” is how most consumers are listening to music, what is the future, and how do manufacturers in the consumer space view the future of mobile audio and pro audio intersecting? This provocative panel will address and discuss this paradigm shift while exploring the ramifications that will affect everyone in the industry, from audio manufacturer to end user.
The session will feature the following panelists:
- Dean Bolte, Managing Director, Americas at Omnifone
- Matt White, Director User Experience, Omnifone
- Joel Clarke, Motorola Mobile Devices
- Jerry Hanley, Business Personal Systems Product Marketing Director at Hewlett-Packard
- Devon Worrell, Mobile Audio Architect, Intel
The discussion is the brainchild of moderator Puig. As an inventor and technologist, Puig relies on vintage hardware and cutting edge software to create complex aural tapestries that capture the essence of the recording artists’ vision. His extensive relationships with top artists and industry figures, as well as his role with Waves and his history as a record company executive and developer of talent/A&R, give him a unique perspective on the nexus between the entertainment world, technology and the consumer electronics market sector.
“The way people are listening to and getting their music is one of the biggest paradigm shifts we have seen since the beginning of the industrial revolution,” stated Jack Joseph Puig. “The participants on this panel are the true movers and shakers of the industry who are helping to course the future of the consumer electronics industry as it pertains to music delivery and end-user experience, and that’s what this session explores. I believe it will be one of the most compelling panels at AES this year.”
