“Live Sound Event Co-chairs John Kilgore and Henry Cohen have prepared an outstanding program for the 123rd AES Convention,” says Convention Chair Jim Anderson. “Beginning at 9AM on Friday, Oct. 5 with a three-hour House of Worship panel, the Live Sound schedule offers not-to-be-missed presentations covering many critical issues facing the industry today.
Scheduled for Oct. 5-8 at New York’s Javits Center, the show will attract more than 20,000 attendees and more than 400 exhibitors from around the world, according to Anderson.
Church & House of Worship Audio and Acoustics: Tom Young of Electroacoustic Design Services will moderate a three-hour panel entitled “The Many Obstacles In HOW, and What We Can (and Cannot) Do About Them.”
One of the industry’s largest and most rapidly expanding markets, the House of Worship sector has been a boon to professional audio services and has dramatically enhanced the HOW ability to spread their message. Issues ranging from budget to design and install, service to training and operation will be examined from the perspectives of the client, consultant, contractor, and operator. (Friday, Oct. 5, 9AM to noon).
AES Live Sound Committee Co-chair Henry Cohen is president of New York-based Production Radio Rentals. Cohen has nearly 30 years of experience in concert sound, corporate theatrical, and special event audio production, radio frequency system design, consulting, and deployment.
Co-chair John Kilgore is a recording engineer/sound designer and owner of Manhattan, N.Y.-based John Kilgore Sound & Recording. His studio credits include recording work for such hit Broadway shows as Spamalot and Wicked, projects for Penelope Cruz, Martin Short, and Disneyland Tokyo, the upcoming film versions of Nine and Hairspray and the triple Grammy-winning On The Transmigration of Souls (John Adams/Nonesuch Records).
“Live Sound is an integral component of the AES Convention, and one of the most colorful as well,” says Executive Director Roger Furness. “We are fortunate to have such dedicated and highly qualified co-chairs on this year’s committee. There is an old adage that says ‘if you want something done right go to a busy man.’ John Kilgore and Henry Cohen lend real-world authority to that axiom.”
