Leading RF expert Henry Cohen and top front-of-house engineer Mac Kerr have returned as Live Sound Co-Chairs for the 131st AES Convention, which will be held in New York City’s Jacob Javits Convention Center from Thursday, October 20, through Sunday, October 23, 2011.

“Henry and Mac’s depth of hands-on experience and technical know-how have been invaluable assets in their ability to build worthwhile events and panels,” says Convention Chair Jim Anderson. “As touring continues to play a pivotal role in the pro audio world’s economic story, the program they have developed is certain to provide a wealth of real-world advice and irreplaceable networking opportunities.”

“Live sound courses through our blood,” says Kerr. “Henry Cohen and I build our panels based on issues we know will make a difference in the way our peers function in this rapidly shifting environment.”

“We maintain a longstanding wish list of people we’d like to make presentations at the Convention,” Cohen adds. “The problem with nailing these folks down months in advance is that they’re always one phone call away from a gig they just can’t walk away from. We’ve been extremely fortunate this year to get people like Robert Scovill, Dave Natale, Sam Berkow, and James Stoffo to commit at this stage in the game. I guess that also speaks to their abiding affection for the AES. This promises to be a terrific year.”

AES Live Sound Events include Robert Scovill's interview with FOH engineer Dave Natale; DSP Alogrithms, a panel moderated by Rich Frembes of Fulcrum Acoustics; Data Networks As A Digital Audio Transport Mechanism, presented by Josh Evans of Lab.gruppen; Subwoofer Arrays and Beam Steering, presented by Jim Risgin of On Stage Audio (OSA); 10 Things To Get Right, in which leading independent audio engineer/systems integrator Tom Young will discuss the differences and similarities between houses of worship and lay facilities; and Installed Systems In Auditoriums and Houses of Worship, also presented by Young.

Live Sound Events also include Multitrack Recording for the Live Sound Engineer, a panel moderated by Sam Berkow of SIA Acoustics; AC Power and Grounding for the Live Performance, moderated by Bruce Olson of Olson Sound Design; Production Wireless Systems: Practical Applications and Practices, moderated by leading RF coordinator James Stoffo; Theatrical Microphone Dressing, presented by Mary McGregor of IATSE Local 1; TVBDs and Geo-Location Databases: An In-Depth Perspective On Their Impact On Wireless Microphone Usage, a panel moderated by Henry Cohen; and finally, Things I Learned On The Broadway Ladder: Lessons For Every Audio Career, presented by independent sound designer/mixer Jim Van Bergen.
