The 130th AES Convention in London will be highlighted by a Richard C. Heyser Lecture Series presentation by Karlheinz Brandenburg. A driving force behind such innovative digital audio technology as MP3 and MPEG audio standards, Mr. Brandenburg’s lecture is entitled, “How to Provide High Quality Audio Everywhere: The MP3 Story and More…” The presentation will be held Saturday, May 14, from 6:30 - 8 p.m. local time, at the Novotel London West Convention Center.

Mr. Brandenburg’s talk will introduce current work on MIR (Music Information Retrieval) and audio reproduction, and discuss the psychoacoustic research required to achieve the dream of perfectly reconstructed sound.

Additionally, on Monday, May 16, from 2 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. local time, the AES 130th Convention will present "I Didn't Get Where I Am Today…", a panel moderated by Peter Filleul of the APRS. The seminar will address the roads to success traveled by prominent artist/producer/engineers.

Panelists will describe their career influences, and discuss whether flexibility, a broad outlook and the "maverick" spirit are essential elements to achieving longevity in the audio business. They will muse on the expectations generated by audio education, training, and the tacit suspicion that "mindset" is more important than 'skill set" in most employment areas.

Panelists include post-production audio engineer Dennis Weinreich, Surrey University (UK) professor David Fisher, producer/musician/educator Barry Marshall, and session guitarist/producer/pro audio educator Elliott Randall.

The 130th Audio Engineering Convention is being held at the Novotel London West Convention Center, May 13-16, 2011.
