The presentation will be titled “Understanding Audition via Sound Synthesis.”

Josh McDermott is a perceptual scientist studying sound, hearing and music. His research addresses human and machine audition using tools from experimental psychology, engineering, and neuroscience. He is particularly interested in using the gap between human and machine competence to both better understand biological hearing and design better algorithms for analyzing sound. McDermott obtained a BA in Brain and Cognitive Science from Harvard, an MPhil in Computational Neuroscience from University College London, a PhD in Brain and Cognitive Science from MIT, and postdoctoral training in psychoacoustics at the University of Minnesota and in Computational Neuroscience at NYU. He is the recipient of a Marshall Scholarship, a National Defense Science and Engineering fellowship, and a James S. McDonnell Foundation Scholar Award. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT.

The opening ceremonies will also feature the presentation of awards and remarks from Bob Moses, AES Executive Director, Frank Wells, AES President, and Jim Anderson, Chair of the 135th AES Convention.

“We are very much looking forward to this year’s convention, and the opening ceremonies will be a fitting kickoff to the biggest audio event of the year,” stated Anderson. “Josh McDermott is an expert on the science of human hearing; his research has far-reaching implications for other researchers, manufacturers and technological innovators, and it will serve the convention well to place the weekend’s proceedings in this context.”

— Professor Alex U. Case will lead a tutorial explaining technical foundations and demonstrating creative strategies for an effect family (compression, equalization, distortion and reverb), followed by a workshop panel offering added insight from the designers of some of the most important hardware and software available for the effect. Downbeat is 9:00 a.m., each morning —

New York, NY, October 10, 2013 — At the 135th Audio Engineering Society Convention (Thursday, October 17, through Sunday, October 20, 2013, at the Javits Center in New York City), Alex U. Case, the well-known Associate Professor of Sound Recording Technology at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, will kick off four straight days of tutorials demonstrating audio processing technologies and techniques. Each day’s sessions will then continue with other presenters’ seminars.

Prof. Case, an active member of the Audio Engineering Society and a Fellow of the Acoustical Society of America with degrees in Mechanical Engineering, Music, and Acoustics, is an engineer, educator and author who speaks frequently on audio and acoustics across the United States and worldwide. At this year’s AES Show, he’s overseeing a jam-packed series of seminars that cover key issues in audio, starting at 9 a.m. each morning with tutorials on specific subjects – Compression, Equalization, Distortion and Reverb – followed by intensive workshops on the same topics, intended to reinforce that new knowledge in a highly practical manner.

Case, who has been a major draw in other types of presentations at previous AES Shows, is packaging his vast knowledge and educational skill in an immersive presentation format that will let attendees leave with a new sense of understanding and confidence in their abilities. “I chose topics that I thought I would have been most interested in early in my career,” explains Case, who says the content of the tutorials are based largely on chapters of his book Sound FX. “But we wanted to take it a step further, so I added the workshops to the tutorials to create a more complete experience.”

Alex U. Case-led Tutorial sessions include:
