On Monday 13th November, the Melbourne Section of the AES held our (slightly delayed) bi-monthly meeting.
Game Sound Designer/Educator/Musician David Lauritsen presented on the topic of:
Video Game Sound Design and Curriculum Development:
Developing the Skills for a Growing Field
After a brief introduction from Section Chairman Graeme Huon, David started his presentation by outlining his history as a musician and developing an interest in audio engineering, leading to his study for a Bachelor of Audio Engineering and a Masters of Creative Industries. He briefly covered his audio recording work at Coloursound and Black Pearl Studios, and film sound work, moving on to audio education at JMC Academy and ultimately into game sound design at Big Ant Studios (AFL23 and Cricket24)
The next online meeting of the AES Melbourne Section will be held on Monday 14th August 2023 at 7:30pm – via Zoom.
It will start with a brief Section Annual General Meeting – non-members and other visitors are welcome to sit in on this part of the meeting.
Then Academy Award winner Ben Osmo (Best Achievement in Sound Mixing 2015 – Mad Max: Fury Road) will present on the topic of:
Film Production Sound Through the Years
changes and added responsibilities.
When Ben started his long and illustrious career in film location sound in the 1970s, capturing location dialogue and effects required little more than a Nagra tape recorder and a shotgun mic on a boom-pole. With advances in technology, the kit a location sound mixer now has to deploy on set can fill a medium-sized van and cover not only multi-channel wireless dialogue/fx capture and recording, but also communications, playback, and monitoring for the entire crew.
The next meeting of the AES Melbourne Section will be an in-person event to be held on Monday 19th June 2023 at 7:30pm at the ABC Southbank radio studios.
Alex Stinson, ABC Classical Music Producer, Recording Engineer, and Editor will present on the topic of:
Modern Classical Music Production
Techniques, challenges & workflow
After a brief tour of the ABC Radio studios, Alex will give us a presentation covering his work and career. Topics covered will include
Recording acoustic music from solo instruments to large orchestras Microphone & mixing techniques Logistics of running orchestral sessions & recording on location Post-production techniques Recording for immersive formats
