Telefunken Elektroakustik is introducing a colourful new twist on its M80 dynamic microphone range at the 133rd AES Convention later this month. The new Solid Color finishes were inspired by The Mars Volta, who took it upon themselves to paint their M80 in solid white. Telefunken is now making the M80 available in a variety of solid colors from their custom shop. In addition to the Solid Color M80s, Telefunken’s entire line of microphones will be on display at AES. In related news, the AES has announced yet another performance for this year’s Special Events Track: Poe – A Life And Stories In Sound will offer attendees an opportunity to see legendary three-time Grammy-nominated Firesign Theatre star Phil Proctor, in a live, hour-long dramatic audio performance, as writer Edgar Allen Poe. The production was coordinated by AES Convention broadcast/streaming media chair David Bialik to illustrate the diversity of live audio production. It also serves to kick-off the inaugural “HEAR Now: The Audio Fiction and Arts Festival” happening in Kansas City 20-23 June, 2013.
