Dave Rat On Touring; Adam Levinson on â€œHollywood & Games;â€? Ian Moore on dBs vs Blue LEDs
SAN FRANCISCO: In a continuation of a popular program inaugurated in 2007, The 129th AES Convention will offer attendees a series of three informative, timely and entertaining Lunchtime Keynote Presentations. Convention Co-Chair Valerie Tyler reports that, â€œLunchtime Keynotes provide an opportunity for attendees to take a break from the hectic Exhibition Hall and concentration-intensive Workshops, Master Classes, Platinum and Educational programs and relax as acknowledged industry leaders provide the benefit of their years of experience in a quiet and informal environment. Last yearâ€™s Lunchtime Keynoteâ€™s benefited from extremely positive word of mouth, and weâ€™re confident that this yearâ€™s program will draw appreciative audiences.â€?
129th AES Convention Lunchtime Keynote Program Presenters Are:
Friday, November 5, 1:15 pm â€” 2:15 pm: Dave Rat, Founder and President of Rat Sound, will share his insights on frequently overlooked needs and challenges facing the live sound touring industry. While his style is light-hearted and humorous the issues he raises are always thought provoking.
Saturday, November 6, 1:15 pm â€” 2:15 pm: Adam Levenson, Sr, Director, Central Audio and Talent, Activision/Blizzard will discuss â€œThe Trappings of Hollywood.â€? Videogame publishers have been striving to emulate and outshine blockbuster Hollywood films and primetime TV for decades. Do celebrity performers, screenwriters or composers drive sales and enhance game play? These and other issues will be addressed.
Sunday, November 7, 1:15 pm â€” 2:15 pm: Ian Moore, guitarist, singer, songwriter â€œIâ€™d Rather Have more dBs Than Blue LEDsâ€? Audio product designers generally focus on making new equipment with better specifications, lower price tags, and with the latest trendy bells and whistles. But artists depend on this gear for their livelihoods. What makes sense in R&D doesnâ€™t always benefit the performer. Moore has a few things to say to the product developers.
