Graham Blyth To Present AES 132nd Convention Heyser Lecture

In Pursuit of Elegant Simplicity: Life, Luck, and Learning in Music and Audio

BUDAPEST: Graham Blyth, internationally recognized Organist and accomplished professional audio equipment designer, will present the Audio Engineering Society’s Richard C. Heyser Lecture on Friday, April 27, 7:00PM – 9:PM at the Budapest Congress & World Trade Center. After successful conventions in London, Paris, Munich, Amsterdam and other major cities throughout Europe, the 132nd marks the first AES Convention to be held in Budapest.

A prime example of the AES ‘Listen, Learn, Connect’ initiative, Blyth’s Heyser lecture will describe his journey from audio design engineer to developer of Soundcraft Mixing consoles, with a special focus on his approach to mic preamp design. Blyth will also address the importance of the analog engineer in a mostly digital world and, the technical and musical challenges associated with designing high-quality digital classical organs.

As co-founder with Phil Dudderidge of UK-based Soundcraft, designers and manufacturers of highly regarded audio mixing consoles, Mr. Blyth has served as Technical Director of the firm since its inception in 1973. Harman bought the company in 1988, and it continues to maintain an outstanding position in a corporate family that includes JBL, DBX, Lexicon, AKG and Studer.

In addition to his technical virtuosity, Mr. Blyth is an esteemed concert artist who has performed in such celebrated venues as NYC’s St. Thomas Church; the Cathedral of Our Lady of Los Angeles; Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, and many of Europe’s most renowned cathedrals. In 1995 he built the Challow Park Recital Hall, a unique 80-seat auditorium with completely variable acoustics. In 2003 he founded the Veritas Organ Company to address the new generation of digital classical organs. Mr. Blyth is a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and of the Audio Engineering Society.
