Jazz bassist Ron Carter will discuss his distinguished career on Saturday, October 22.

The 131st AES Convention will be held in New York City's Javits Center from Thursday, October 20, through Sunday, October 23, 2011. Lunchtime Keynotes are set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 1:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m.

“This year’s Lunchtime Keynote events will offer attendees options designed to appeal to a wide range of interests,” states Convention Chair Jim Anderson. “Our guest speakers run the gamut from MP3 innovator Karlheinz Brandenburg to celebrated jazz bassist Ron Carter (pictured) and noted broadcast journalist/engineer and futurist Skip Pizzi. Each is guaranteed to provide an information-packed respite from the busy Exhibition Hall and crowded Event Presentations. Attendees are reminded to bring their own lunches.”

On Friday, October 21, Karlheinz Brandenburg will offer "The MP3 Story." One of the original developers of MP3, Brandenburg has been researching digital audio compression since 1977. The Internet’s evolution from a text-based medium to major carrier for sound heralded dramatic payload changes as well as new dangers for audio quality. It also rocked business models for music sales and the foundations of the music industry.

On Saturday, October 22, music journalist and author Ashley Kahn will interview celebrated bassist and cellist Ron Carter, whose smart, elegant, and funky bass lines helped anchor the worlds of jazz, R&B, and rock. This keynote will include musical and video selections as Carter discusses a long and versatile career, which includes performing with Miles Davis, Carter's triumphs as a bandleader, and his most recent recording project, The Great Big Band.

Finally, on Sunday, October 23, Skip Pizzi will offer "The Future Of Broadcasting In A Connected World." An insightful technologist, Pizzi brings a fresh perspective to industry predictions of the impending death of broadcast, and the Internet’s rise as the preferred distribution method for audio and video.
