John Meyer: Influencing the way audiences hear sound since the late '60s, Meyer began creating loudspeakers using integral control processors at SF-based McCune Sound Service. Since founding Meyer Sound Laboratories in 1979, his innovations such as advanced self-powered loudspeaker systems have changed the face of live sound. Meyer Sound has garnered 37 U.S. and international patents and numerous industry awards. He was made an AES Fellow in 1985, and he received the Silver Medal in 2007.

Other industry leaders featured in the second AES Oral History Series are Frank Abbey, James E. Webb, Manfred Schroeder, Hamilton Brosious, David Blackner, Neil Muncy, Kunimaro Tanaka, D.B. Keele Jr, Gualtiero Berlinghini, Jerry B. Minter, Dan Dugan and Walter Selsted.

“Irv Joel, Harry Hirsch and John Chester are making an invaluable contribution to the appreciation and understanding of our industry’s early prime-movers,” comments AES Historical Committee co-chair Bill Wray. “We are fortunate to have a library of over 60 additional videotaped interviews, all of which are planned for DVD release. And we plan to continue producing an ongoing series of interviews with current and future visionaries.”

“This AES Oral History Project was initiated as an inspiration to new generations of audio industry professionals,” Roger Furness concludes. “Education remains an AES priority, and these unique DVD personal histories represent a priceless link between our past and our rapidly evolving future. Many of the leading pro audio schools both in the United States and abroad have already added our initial twenty productions to their libraries. We look forward to a steadily growing subscription list as meaningful new titles are added to this collection.”

The entire (current) series of 40 AES Oral History Project DVDs is available now from at $15 each for AES members, $20 for non-members.
