CHRIS STONE, Co-Founder of the legendary recording studio, THE RECORD PLANT in NEW YORK, will be the keynote speaker for the AES' 125th Convention. Entitled "The Artist Owns The Industry," STONES’ keynote address will be held on THURSDAY, OCT. 2nd in the MOSCONE CENTER SPECIAL EVENTS HALL.
STONE will explore what it takes to succeed in today’s environment in which artists with limited capital create their music in home (sometimes bedroom) studios, far removed from million-dollar showplace facilities and the guidance of veteran producer/engineers.
"As co-founder, past Pres./Chair. of the SOCIETY OF PROFESSIONAL AUDIO RECORDING STUDIOS (SPARS) and co-founder of the MUSIC PRODUCERS GUILD OF THE AMERICAS (now The Producers and Engineers Wing of NARAS). STONE has maintained a high profile as a recording industry ombudsman throughout his colorful career," Convention Co-Chair JOHN STRAWN said.
