A virtual press conference from Sound & Video Contractor

AES/APRS Event-I Didn’t Get Where I am Today . . .

LONDON: Careers are magically unpredictable. Many successful audio world icons, count a chance meeting, or the whims of fortune for their success. Others had a clear direction, some swear by training and hard earned skills. On Monday, May 16, 14:00 – 15:45 the AES 130th Convention will present I Didn’t Get Where I am Today . . . a panel moderated by Peter Filleul of the APRS. The 90-minute seminar will address the roads to success traveled by prominent artist/producer/engineers.

Panelists will describe their career influences, and discuss whether flexibility, a broad outlook and the “maverick” spirit are essential elements to achieving longevity in the audio business. They will muse on the expectations generated by audio education, training and, the tacit suspicion that “Mindset” is more important than ‘Skillset” in most employment areas.

Panelists include:

Dennis Weinreich: Bass player turned consummate audio engineer, built a career via music and audio production for film and TV to studio ownership and went on to direct the post-production department at Pinewood Film Studios.

Professor David Fisher: Responsible for the establishment of the only ‘Tonmeister’ course available in the UK. The development of the audio course at Surrey University is consider to be one of the pinnacles of academic and practical training in audio skills.

Barry Marshall: Successful producer/musician and educator

Elliott Randall: Top session guitar player originally based in California during the era of The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan for whom he provided legendary recorded performances. Now a true Brit, he is a, composer, producer and pro audio educator.

Panel Moderator, Peter Filleul: Composer/musician, turned industry administrator and representative in the area of producers’ rights and audio recording.
