Sir George Martin & Masataka Goto to attend AES convention
Japanese music technology research scientist and gifted public speaker Masataka Goto has now been confirmed as the Keynote Speaker at the Convention's opening ceremony on 22 May, and the Convention's final day will be graced by an appearance from Sir George Martin CBE, who will be accepting an Honorary Membership from the AES before introducing one of the afternoon seminars on the final day of the Convention.
"The AES is delighted to present George Martin with this award," comments AES executive director Roger Furness. "The ranks of those who have previously received an AES Honorary Membership include Leonard Bernstein, Pierre Boulez, Walt Disney, and Herbert von Karajan, and I can think of no finer addition to their number than Sir George Martin. We're also excited to welcome Masataka Goto to London to deliver the Keynote Address at the opening ceremony - we expect a good time will be had by all who can attend."
