134th AES Convention Rome – Sound for Pictures Track

Skyfall Music Production – Moscow’s 1st Atmos Theater – Critical Standards

ROME: “The early filmmakers classic term ‘MOS’ is virtually obsolete,” states 134th AES Convention Chairman, Umberto Zanghieri. “Most audio produced today is directly associated with cinema, TV, Internet, streaming broadcasts, video games, and mobile. It is almost inconceivable to imagine pictures ‘Mit Out Sound.’ This Convention’s Sound For Pictures Track Chair, Brian McCarty, has developed a particularly compelling program of Papers, Tutorials and Workshops,” Zanghieri adds.

Scheduled for May 4-7, 2013 at Rome’s Fontana di Trevi Conference Centre, the Convention will explore emerging trends in 3-D Sound, Large Room Reproduction Systems and Acoustics. Leading international and Hollywood-based sound mixers and designers will discuss techniques and critical standards issues facing today’s sound for picture professionals.

Sound For Picture Track Presentations Include:

Music Production For Film: Presenter, Simon Franglen – Co-producer of the main theme song from Titanic with Celine Dion, Franglen has been an integral collaborator on the music production of such blockbuster hits as: Avatar, Spiderman, and Skyfall. Utilizing clips from all three films, Franglen’s Tutorial will illustrate the construction of a film soundtrack from inception, temp track and recording through final mix.

Design and Construction of The First Atmos-Equipped Dubbing Theater: Presenter, Philip Newell – Prolific author, and 35-year veteran designer of such celebrated studios as The Manor and Townhouse, Newell’s book “Recording Studio Design” (2003) is considered the definitive guide to a successful project. A Fellow with the Institute of Acoustics – Newell’s Workshop will document his latest cinema sound project, construction of the first new, Dolby Atmos Theatre in Moscow, finished just weeks ago.

Multichannel Immersive Audio Formats for 3-D Cinema and Home Theater: One of the most well attended workshops of 133rd AES Convention in San Francisco was a presentation by the four leading proponents of Immersive 3-D sound systems. Iosono, Auro3D, Dolby, and NHK. Representatives from all four of these pioneering companies will return to the Workshop stage in Rome to continue their discussion on the relative merits in each of their proposals.

Additional Sound For Picture Presentations will be posted on the preliminary program will be posted at www.aes.org soon.

In a related announcement, Sound For Pictures Track Chair, Brian McCarty, reports that two newly initiated AES Standards Committee projects are in development. AES-X218: Measurement and Calibration of Sound Systems in Rooms, is scoped to identify tools and procedures for measuring the performance of a loudspeaker system in a room, and support accurate, reliable calibration of this system to a specified performance. AES-X219: Method of Measurement for Frequency and Impulse Response of Sound Systems in Auditoria, is scoped to specify a method of measurement for frequency and impulse response of sound systems in auditoria. It is intended to produce a Standard, and the development discussions are expected to draw on modern measurement techniques.
