New York City, New York (PRWEB) April 09, 2013
After months of anticipation the New York Audio Show is finally here. Starting this Friday on April 12th and running through the weekend, the New York Palace Hotel will be packed with audiophiles, sound engineers, producers and more for an event that can only be described as a music-lovers dream
One facet of the New York Audio Show will be “From Studio to You” presented by The Sound Organisation, a U.S distributor of PMC Speakers, along with retail partner SoundStageDirect. Throughout the weekend, special guests will present their music using PMC twenty series loudspeakers in stereo and fact.3 speakers in a conﬁguration. Presenters include Grammy-Award-winning recording experts and industry icons surround that will give music fans a glimpse into the tools and techniques used to make music sound so polished and pure. “From Studio to You” will truly give music fans a rare opportunity to hear music at the closest point to which the recording was created.
Taking place in the Spellman Room on the fifth floor of the Palace Hotel, The Sound Organisation and SoundStageDirect will present PMC Loudspeakers and host recording-industry professionals all weekend long. “From Stereo to You” kicks off Friday 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 is known for working with artists like REM, The Eagles and Marcus Miller. Also speaking on Friday is 11-time Grammy Winner Jim Anderson, known for his skills as an engineer and producer of acoustic music. Anderson will be presenting a selection of classical and jazz recordings mastered using PMC loudspeakers.
On Saturday Darcy Proper will come back to talk about the mastering process and demonstrate how mastering can blur lines between the professional and casual music worlds. Anderson will also return to discuss his most recent work with singer/songwriter Patricia Barber, a recipient of the Guggenheim Fellowship. With over 20 years’ experience working together Anderson has recorded every one of her albums, including her newest work “Smash.” Anderson also recently earned Stereophile Magazine’s “Recording of the Month” in October 2012 for his work on Modern Cool in 5.1 surround on Blu-ray, which also won a Grammy. His presentation features both of these works in stereo, surround and high-resolution.
The day will end on a high note as Los Angeles-based recording engineer Joseph Cali presents on the recording and mixing process that went into the production of Lori Lieberman’s most recent album “Bricks Against The Glass.” Lieberman will be treating the audience to a free live session on Saturday evening, playing some songs from the new album which was mixed on PMC Speakers.
“From Studio to You” concludes on Sunday with a special panel discussion entitled “The Art of Making an Album” featuring Proper, Cali, Lieberman and mastering engineer Ruairi O’Flaherty. Visitors fortunate enough to hear the panel will get a sense of what music sounds like in the studio as its being made.
