Stephen Webber (pictured)—internationally recognized author, professor of music production and engineering, and hip-hop DJ—will present the Keynote address at the 134th AES Convention. Scheduled for May 4 to May 7 at the Fontana di Trevi Center in Rome, the Convention promises a rich program of educational Workshops and tutorials, research papers, standards and technical committee deliberations, and an incomparable environment for networking with the world’s audio elite.

In making the announcement, AES Executive Director Bob Moses remarked, “Stephen Webber personifies today’s AES membership. He combines a deep commitment to education with a high profile career as a creative DJ. An accomplished author and lecturer, Webber’s Keynote will provide a insightful bridge between the future and our legacy.”

Webber’s AES Keynote is entitled “Inventing the Album of 2025.” It will seek to consider what is technologically, economically and artistically possible to decipher what the record album should look, sound, and feel like in 2025.

Author of such books as Turntable Technique: The Art of the DJ, Webber is an international clinician who presents workshops, master classes and performance seminars on production, mixing techniques, and songwriting. An Emmy Award–winning composer whose works include the Stylus Symphony, Webber was recently appointed Director of Music Technology Innovation at Berklee’s new campus in Valencia, Spain.

Webber addressed Berklee's graduating class of 2012, and has performed and lectured extensively in the U.S., China, Australia, Central America, and Europe. Webber is also an accomplished studio designer whose clients include actors Jack Black and Ben Stiller, and a producer/engineer who has worked with NAS, Mark O’Connor, and DJ Premier.

“We have high expectations for the 134th AES Convention,” Moses concludes. “Attendees will find many opportunities to listen, learn and connect with each other.”
