More than 30 attend first AES Scotland meeting
An excellent turnout of more than 30 people attended the inaugural meeting of AES Scotland, held on 15th September at Glasgow Caledonian University. 15 of those were AES members – an impressive percentage of the 100 or so members with Scottish postcodes on our database.
After a welcome from AES Scotland chair Elena Prokofieva and AES UK Section chair
Bill Foster, the audience was treated to two lectures, the first on the design and equipping of Glasgow’s new state-of-the art recording studio, Gorbals Sound, by Cameron Malcolm (Gorbals Sound) and Paul Ferguson (Edinburgh Napier University), followed by an comprehensive overview of audio education in Scotland by Patrick Quinn (Glasgow Caledonian University).
During the meeting delegates were asked to put forward suggestions for future lectures and technical visits. The resulting list had more than 20 proposals! A local committee has been formed and it’s hoped to begin a regular programme of events within the next few months. Initially, these are likely to be held in the Edinburgh/Glasgow area.
