125th AES Convention Workshops Co-Chair David Harris

“Our mandate for the 125th AES convention workshops program was to identify the most compelling issues facing the pro audio industry, and to select panels capable of clarifying them,” reports Workshops co-chair Dave Harris (pictured). “In addition to a number of strong individual presentations, we have also grouped a pair of presentation tracks to address archiving and game audio as comprehensively as possible.”

Co-chair Joe Carter mentions three workshops that focus on videogame audio. “Games are now a dominant audio sector of production/post-production growth, and clearly warrant in-depth study,” Carter says. “We have also coordinated a trio of workshops on developments in archiving, a critical issue with far-ranging implications.”

“We are extremely pleased with this year’s workshops program,” says 125th AES Convention committee co-chair John Strawn. “Our co-chairs are immensely qualified for this assignment. Dave Harris is a former VP of engineering for NPR in Washington, D.C., and senior systems designer for Lucasfilm THX. Joe Carter served as senior software engineer at Walt Disney Imagineering and was a member of the Motion Pictures Experts Group (MPEG). They have done a yeoman’s job on this year’s program. The 125th AES convention will be held in San Francisco’s Moscone Center, October 2-5, 2008,” Strawn says. “We believe it’s one for the record books.”
