Live Sound: Technologies to Satisfy New Audience Expectations

AES UK Conference, 28-29 April 2003, Church House, Westminster

Is a good night out the same as it used to be?

Competition for audiences has never been fiercer and yet the rewards are great for those who can entertain, amaze and seduce our ears successfully. Audiences whose expectations have been satisfied or exceeded will come back again and again. But audience expectations are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Audio-visual entertainment at home is providing strong competition for the live show experience. Quality, generally, is remarkably improved compared with 20 years ago. Can theatres afford to stand still? Should shows and concerts settle for 'good enough'?

This AES UK Section Conference presents a lively programme of talks from respected engineers, designers and academics, with plenty of opportunity for both formal and informal discussion.

Who should attend?

Theatre and venue technical management, sound designers, front-of-house sound engineers, equipment manufacturers.
