On August 24, the Audio Engineering Society's New York Section will host a 40th anniversary salute to Electric Lady Studios and the legacy of Jimi Hendrix. The guitarist celebrated the opening of his Electric Lady Recording Studios at 52 West 8th Street in New York City's Greenwich Village on August 26, 1970 and passed away on September 18, 1970 at the age of 27. In addition to his lasting musical legacy, Hendrix left a studio that continues to this day to produce hits for artists including Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Coldplay, the Rolling Stones, Patti Smith, U2, Sheryl Crow, The Strokes, Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

The 40th anniversary salute to Electric Lady will feature a panel that includes Jimi’s sister, Janie Hendrix, CEO/president of Experience Hendrix, LLC; Eddie Kramer, who engineered Hendrix’s recording sessions; studio architect/acoustician John Storyk, who began his career with Electric Lady, and whose international Walters-Storyk Design Group has created more than 3,000 studios around the globe; longtime Electric Lady engineer Tony Platt (AC/DC, Foreigner); and Grammy Award-winning engineer Bob Margouleff (Stevie Wonder). The AES states that other guests will include artists who have recorded at Electric Lady throughout its 40-year history.

AES New York Section Committee Member David Bialik states, “Our goal for this dual event is to honor one of the longest-lived studios in NYC’s history, and to pay tribute to the indelible mark its founder has left on contemporary music. While admission is limited to 60 attendees, CBS will provide streaming of the event via the AES Website, as artists, engineers, producers and studio designers reminisce about Hendrix and his studios’ amazing history.”

Registration for this event, which limited to 60 attendees, begins on Thursday, August 5, at 10 a.m. (Eastern) and concludes on Thursday, August 12 at 10 a.m. (Eastern). The AES requests that each attendee provide his or her full name and affiliation for its security list.
