TYLER & MC TIGUE – 133rd AES CONVENTION CO-CHAIRS ON TRACK FOR A BLOCKBUSTER EVENT


SAN FRANCISCO: Co-Chairing an AES Convention takes technical and interpersonal skills, an ability to juggle an infinite stream of details, an aptitude for delegating AND, the capacity for keeping a close eye on your day job. Clearly gifted with these indispensable talents, AES 133rd Convention Co-Chairs Valerie Tyler and Jim McTigue have returned to the scene of their 2010 success. Plans are well underway for the Convention set for October 26-29 at SF’s Moscone Center.

Both Tyler and McTigue take great pride in their contributions to this gargantuan undertaking. Like all the volunteer Chairs, they share a deep sense of accomplishment in producing what appears to attendees and exhibitors to be an effortless, efficient and smoothly running ‘clockwork’ event. Their goal is to perpetuate that ‘never let ‘em see you sweat’ cliché.

Since joining the AES in 1993,Valerie Tyler has served in a variety of Convention committee positions including Workshops, Special Events, Tutorials & Master Classes. Her extensive academic career includes music studies at UC Santa Cruz, music/recording industry studies at San Francisco State University, and electronic music, digital audio, digital video, web design, and graphic design studies at College of San Mateo where she currently holds the position of Webmaster. Tyler has also served as an audio editor and as a freelance live sound engineer.

A 35-year+ veteran of the acoustics, broadcast, and professional audio industry, Jim McTigue began his career at NY’s legendary A&R Recording Studios. He has served in technology and management roles for such leading firms as Altec Lansing, API, Broadcast Technology, Euphonix, Radix Systems and Chief Engineer at NY’s famed Sigma Sound Studios. McTigue is currently director, Audio Hardware Development for Avid Technology. His broad education includes engineering degrees from the Polytechnic Institute of NYU and the University of Oklahoma. In addition to Co-Chairing his 2nd consecutive AES SF Convention, he is currently serving on the AES SF Section Committee.

“Our Committee Chairs devote a vast amount of time and energy to AES Conventions,” says Executive Director, Bob Moses. ” In doing so they earn the respect and appreciation of their peers and the knowledge that they are performing an invaluable service for the industry. We are all indebted to Jim McTigue and Valerie Tyler for their extraordinary contribution to this massive venture. We are confident that they and their Co-Chairs are creating an unforgettable Convention experience.”
