The AUDIO ENGINEERING SOCIETY celebrated its Diamond Anniversary on MARCH 11th, 60 years to the day of its formation. The AES NEW YORK Section hosted a SRO party at NYC’s NEW SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL RESEARCH.
The event was highlighted by a screening of excerpts from the forthcoming AES Oral History Project, featuring anecdotes by legendary COLUMBIA RECORDS engineer FRANK LIACO and legendary guitarist/multi-track pioneer LES PAUL, among others. The AES will begin making interviews from the Oral History Project available on DVD, later this year.
The AES has grown to over 14,000 members and 169 sections in 48 countries worldwide.
