The Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio (Emeryville, Calif.) has announced the nominees for the 18th Annual Technical Excellence & Creativity Awards, which honor outstanding technical and creative achievement in professional audio recording and sound production. The awards ceremony will be presented Monday evening, October 7, 2002, at the Wilshire Grand Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Nominations in 24 categories comprising 17 areas of technical achievement in product design and seven categories of creative achievement in audio production were made by a select panel of 112 audio industry professionals. Winners will be chosen by the 42,000 BPA-qualified Mix subscribers who cast the ballots that will be included in the August issue of the magazine.

The nominated products and projects represent the greatest advances in production/performance tools and the achievements of engineers, producers, designers and technicians who define the highest standard of excellence in professional audio. Notable among this year's nominees are the top five choices for Outstanding Record Production/Album, which offers a widely varied sampling of musical genres and illustrate the nominating panel's collective ear for superior production quality over popular preferences of style.

This year, recognition for production facility design has been brought back to the TEC Awards in the category of Outstanding Studio Design Project. Honoring studio architects, acousticians and studio owners, the award recognizes those whose outstanding work is evidenced in exceptionally designed facilities completed in the nomination eligibility period of March 2001 to February 2002.

Lifetime achievement awards will go to legendary recording engineer/producer Geoff Emerick and musician/composer Robbie Robertson. Emerick, best known for the sonic artistry he gave to the production of many of The Beatles' greatest recordings, will be inducted into the TEC Awards Hall of Fame. Robertson, renowned as a driving force behind seminal rock group The Band, will receive the prestigious Les Paul Award, presented each year for the creative application of music and audio technology.
