The Sound Organisation, U.S. distributor of PMC loudspeakers, along with retail partner SoundStageDirect, are proud to introduce PMC’s “From Studio to You” concept at the New York Audio Show on April 12 through 14. Leading industry icons and Grammy-Award-winning experts from the world of professional recording will help both audiophiles and music lovers alike grasp the tools and techniques employed to capture the essence of music in its purest form. For many, this will afford a rare, unique and likely first time opportunity to experience sound at the closest point to which the recording was made.
The Sound Organisation and SoundStageDirect will present PMC loudspeakers and host recording-industry professionals in the Spellman Room on the ﬁfth ﬂoor of the New York Palace Hotel. A packed schedule throughout the weekend commences at noon on April 12 with a VIP/press presentation from Darcy Proper, a three-time Grammy-Award- winning mastering engineer and current director of mastering at one the world’s most technically advanced studios, PMC-equipped Wisseloord Studios in Holland. Proper, who began her career in the classical department of Sony Music Studios, is in high demand for her work mastering historical reissue projects and stereo/5.1 releases for major artists such as REM, Marcus Miller and the Eagles. Her presentation will focus on the rarely intersecting worlds of professional recording and high-end audio.
Friday afternoon will also host Jim Anderson, internationally recognized engineer and producer of acoustic music. The 11-time Grammy winner will be presenting a selection of classical and jazz recordings mastered using PMC loudspeakers.
Proper returns on Saturday to lecture on the mastering process and demonstrate how mastering can bridge the gap between the pro and audiophile worlds. Anderson will again be on hand to discuss his latest work with Chicago-based singer/songwriter/pianist Patricia Barber. Teamed together for over 20 years, Anderson has recorded all 10 of her albums, including the newly released Smash. His recent work on Modern Cool in 5.1 surround on Blu-ray was awarded the Stereophile Magazine’s “Recording of the Month” in October 2012 in addition to its Grammy win in the “Best Surround Album” category. Anderson’s presentation will feature these two works in stereo, surround and high-resolution.
The day will conclude with a presentation from Los Angeles-based recording engineer Joseph Cali, who will unveil the recording and mixing process that went into the production of acclaimed singer/songwriter Lori Lieberman’s latest album, Bricks Against The Glass. Lieberman will be on hand to perform a free-ticketed live session on Saturday evening, playing music from the new album, which was mixed on PMC speakers.
Throughout the weekend, special guests will present their music using PMC twenty series loudspeakers in stereo and fact.3 speakers in a surround conﬁguration. With a strong professional recording studio pedigree, the speakers will enable show visitors to hear music exactly like it did in the studio. The show concludes with Proper, Cali, Lieberman and mastering engineer Ruairi O’Flaherty hosting a panel discussion entitled “The Art of Making an Album.”
