Conservatory staff, grads and students recently enjoyed the gear, parties, panels, studio tours and buzz surrounding the 2008 AES Convention at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. “It was impossible to walk the floor for 5 minutes without seeing a CRAS student or grad,” said Director of Education Mike Jones. DPA microphones, Blue microphones, Presonus, Antelope Audio, Blackbird Studio and TC Electronic were just a few examples of companies exhibiting at the show who were employing CRAS grads.
On Friday and Saturday nights, Hyde Street Studios hosted one of the many parties around town which offered a combination of networking opportunities and technology demos. Pictured above is CRAS grad Eddie Mapp recording Evanescence bassist Tim McCord for a group of onlookers enjoying the evening at the studio. Visit our photo gallery for more shots from the show.
