On Saturday, September 7, the San Francisco Chapter of the Recording Academy presented a Producers & Engineers Wing Professional Education Event entitled "5.1/The Future is Now," at Ex'pression Center for New Media (Emeryville, Calif.). Designed to provide the San Francisco Bay Area music community with an in-depth look at the technology behind 5.1 surround sound format, Al Schmitt, James Guthrie and Joel Jaffe came together to discuss and present some of their various 5.1 projects.

Featured clips included works by Diana Krall, Ringo Starr, David Gray, DJ QBert and Roger Waters. The audience also experienced a first taste of unreleased work by Natalie Cole, and James Guthrie gave a sneak preview of his latest project, a live performance DVD for Pink Floyd's Pulse, currently a work in progress.
