Panelists will offer an in-depth analysis of key songs and recordings that have made a transformative impact on the way that they approach their own projects and careers.
Session Description: “Some songs are hits, some we just love, and some have changed our lives. Our panelists break down the DNA of their favorite tracks and explain what moved them, what grabbed them, and why these songs left a life-long impression. Back by popular demand, this presentation is guaranteed to make you feel good about being in the recording business.”
Droney adds, “We are excited to bring back this popular event to the AES Convention with a new lineup of producers and engineers to share their own unique stories. With so many innovative sounds and styles marking our evolution as industry creatives, we find it important to share these origin stories and moments of influence that impact what we hear to this day.”
