AES 125th Committee co-chair Valerie Tyler commented: "Audio history has always been an intrinsic element of AES Convention programmes, but as we celebrate our 60th anniversary this year [_] it seems even more relevant. Historical Events chair Tamara Horacek collaborated with AES members Marina Bosi, Gene Radzik and Steve Fields to develop an absorbing programme which lends a timely perspective to three of the most significant sectors in today's professional audio industry."

The 125th AES Convention will be held at San Francisco's Moscone Center from October 2nd to 5th.
