AES to host first international event in Cuba next month

The 2017 Audio Engineering Society Latin American Conference – the “Conferencia Latinoamericana” – is due to take place at the Fabrica de Arte Cubano in Havana, Cuba on 17 and 18 June.

“This is the first-ever international event that the Audio Engineering Society has held in Cuba,” said Conference co-chair Andrés Mayo. “The rich musical pulse of the island will provide an excellent sonic backdrop for this milestone event.”

The presenter list for the Conference includes the likes of Oscar Barrientos, Hugo Caviedes, Ian Corbett, Ricardo Escallón, Tweety González, Javier Longhi, Juan “Cana” San Martín and Marcela Zorro, in addition to co-chairs Mayo and Valeria Palomino.

Sessions will cover the tools and techniques employed in modern music production, from recording and mastering to live events. Attendees will also gain insights into developing and future audio technologies.

“The AES Latin American conference series – begun in 2007 – is an important event on each year’s calendar,” commented Palomino. “It’s the gathering point for the leading audio researchers, practitioners and students to meet, share and learn.”

The 2017 AES Latin America Conference registration is under the umbrella of the multifaceted host event, AM-PM “América por su Música”. For more details and registration, visit the website below.
