NEW YORK—Since opening its doors in 1981, the Blue Note in New York City has become one of the premier jazz clubs in the world and a cultural institution in Greenwich Village playing host to some of the greatest musicians of all time such as Ray Charles, Sarah Vaughan, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Nina Simone, BB King, Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Tony Bennett, Chris Botti, to name a few as well as modern hip-hop and R&B stars, including Lauryn Hill, Mos Def, Common and Lupe Fiasco. Recently the club received an upgraded sound system installed by Petrix.

“The Blue Note installation was a challenge,? states Amit Peleg, owner of Peltrix. “While the acoustical characteristics of the room are good, the audience sits around the stage which is positioned in the center of the room. There is only 15.5 feet from the front of the stage to the more

LONDON, ENGLAND: Gareth Jones is well known for producing ground-breaking albums with ground-breaking artists, such as Depeche Mode, Wire, and Erasure, and he continues to work with their next generation heirs, such as Interpol, Grizzly Bear, and Mogwai. From the start, Jones has been a technological pioneer, blazing trails down which the masses later followed. Jones was an early adopter of digital recording technologies and is today considered one of the world’s foremost experts on the Logic Audio recording, mixing, and editing platform. Relatively recently in the context of his long career, Jones outfitted his studio – which is by necessity mobile – with a pair of Metric Halo FireWire interfaces, that provide him with sixteen studio-grade mic preamps, sixteen channels of AD and DA, powerful DSP processing, 80-bit master summing, and – taken together – the flexibility to do what needs to be done, whatever the circumstance.

SOUTHEAST ASIA: John Latartara received his doctoral degree in Theoretical Studies from the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, Massachusetts and is currently an associate professor of music at the University of Mississippi. With interests and aptitudes neatly divided among the three complementary activities of composition, research, and teaching, Latartara makes extensive personal and professional use of his Metric Halo ULN-2 FireWire interface. The ULN-2, which combines peerless mic preamps, converters, and recording software integration, forms the heart of his home studio, where he creates electronic and experimental music (releases on Sachimay, Centaur, and Visceralmedia Records). But the ULN-2 also travels with Latartara to points far and remote in support of his research. Most recently, Latartara has been traveling throughout Southeast Asia to document the rare, and slowly vanishing, music of the Tai Dam people.

Physician/Musician Charles Limb For 131ST AES Keynote

Jazz, Hip Hop, Creativity & The Brain… An Inquiry Into Relationships
