NEW YORK: Drawing from the NY area’s unparalleled variety of media-rich options, 127th AES Convention Technical Tours Chair Lou Manno has once again developed a stellar series of rare, behind-the-scenes visits. 127th Committee Chair, Agnieszka Roginska reports that this year’s program covers a particularly diverse field. “Lou Manno has a keen eye (and ear) for uncovering unique destinations guaranteed to be of great interest to AES attendees,” Roginska says. “We all benefit from his encyclopedic knowledge of New York’s pro audio community.”

The tour will be guided by John Storyk and David Kotch.

Thomas Edison National Historical Park: For over forty years, Thomas Edison’s laboratory in West Orange, New Jersey produced an ongoing series of revolutionary innovations. In addition to the motion picture camera, silent and sound movies and the nickel-iron alkaline electric storage battery, Edison applied his genius to vastly improving phonographs and sound recordings. His laboratory and Glenmont, his recently renovated residence, will provide an unforgettable perspective on the life and working environment of one of the world’s most influential inventors.
