Eric Smith, Founder and President of Auralex® Acoustics, Continues to Share His Knowledge Through Lectures and Speaking Engagements Nationwide

— Ongoing series of events sees Smith traveling to schools and conferences to educate students, faculty and industry veterans alike —

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, November 7, 2013 – Eric Smith, Founder and President of Auralex® Acoustics, Inc., the world’s leading brand of acoustical treatments, is continuing to share his knowledge far and wide, as he has been a featured guest lecturer at a number of colleges and universities across the country. A highly-sought-after speaker, Smith has recently had the opportunity to speak to faculty and students at Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles and the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in Gilbert, AZ with more such engagements planned indefinitely.

Smith, throughout his career, has been a strong advocate of education, and he has guest-lectured at high schools and colleges throughout the country on the subjects of acoustics, broadcasting and entrepreneurship. Smith brings a wealth of personal experience, technical knowledge and a sense of humor to all of his presentations, which focus on basic acoustic theories, sound control issues and solutions, product design strategies, the challenges of a start-up company and what it takes to be successful in business.

Barry Rudolph, Instructor at Musician’s Institute, recalled the response to Smith’s presentation there: “What a fantastic and generous lecture Auralex President Eric Smith recently gave to the audio engineering students here at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Our new Studio F was filled to capacity throughout the afternoon with a continuous stream of students enjoying his insightful and practical suggestions for improving the sound of their own project/home studios using various Auralex acoustic treatment products. Eric’s anecdotal yet analytical tutorial style explains with clarity, precision and humor. The students loved it!”

Smith was also a featured panelist at the recent PotLuckCon 2013 Audio Conference. Eric participated in a panel discussion along with studio designers/acousticians Mark Genfan and Carl Tatz and noted journalist/music technology specialist Mitch Gallagher. The topic of the well-attended panel discussion was “Practical Acoustics Workshop,” and the panel was moderated by Alex Maiolo.

“This series of events has been very fruitful,” stated Eric Smith. “I love getting the opportunity to promote good sound and good listening environments to current and future engineers and members of the audio community. When I see tomorrow’s audio professionals asking great questions and paying close attention, I know that the industry is in great hands. I am lucky that I can make an impact on these minds in the process, and I look forward to participating at more of these events in the near future.”

Audio Engineering Society Welcomes New President Dr. Sean Olive

— Noted audio researcher, educator and recording engineer/producer assumes role of President,
taking over from Frank Wells —

— Olive’s expertise and experience will help frame and strengthen the direction of AES leading into the 137th Convention in Los Angeles and beyond —

New York, NY, November 6, 2013 — Following closely on the heels of the 135th Audio Engineering Society (AES) Convention, held Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City, which was hailed as one of the AES’s biggest successes in recent memory, the AES welcomes Dr. Sean Olive as its new President, taking over from outgoing President Frank Wells. Currently serving as Director, Acoustic Research, HARMAN International, Olive is based in Northridge, California, placing him in an ideal location to guide the AES into the 137th Convention, which will take place in Los Angeles in the fall of 2014.

Olive’s experience is wide-ranging; his education includes a B. Mus. from University of Toronto, a M. Mus. in sound recording from McGill University and a PhD in sound reproduction from McGill. He served as an audio research scientist for the National Research Council of Canada for several years, before joining the HARMAN team in 1993. He has stayed active in academia, teaching classes at UCLA on occasion, and has been involved in various aspects of the AES’s technical committees and research initiatives. He displays an unwavering passion for audio and the AES organization, and his unique perspective as a musician, educator, recording engineer/producer, audio researcher and consumer places him in an ideal position to guide the course of the society through the next year and help plot that course for coming years.

One set of goals embraced by Olive is to continue diversifying the scope of the AES and its membership. As he points out, “The recording industry has been at times resistant to change, and we are still feeling the effects of the failure to fully embrace digital technology. The ways that consumers are experiencing music are evolving at a rapid rate, with audio as a mobile experience now being much more common than a living room with a hi-fi system. Headphone sales are through the roof, and the AES has a chance to help improve the consistency and quality of the mobile experience. As our membership continues to move toward this world, along with the worlds of film, sound contracting, live sound, automotive audio and gaming, we need to further explore these avenues in order to better serve our members. There is also huge room for AES member expansion into the so-called ‘BRIC’ countries – Brazil, Russia, India and China – and we plan to increase our outreach in those regions. The AES has a tremendous leadership role and a strong membership base, and I look forward to leveraging these assets to assist in the ongoing transition to the AES of the 21st century.”
