The next meeting of the Chicago Section of the Audio Engineering Society will be held at 7:30pm on Wednesday, June 8th, 2011, at Shure Incorporated in Niles. Members and non-members are welcome. The HTML version will be available soon at our Chicago Section website.

TOPIC: Larry Crane: A Life of Recording Gear Mistrust (and Lust)...

PRESENTER: Larry Crane

DATE: Wednesday, June 8, 2011 TIME: 7:30pm; dinner (optional) at 6:30pm


LOCATION: Shure Incorporated, 5800 W. Touhy Ave, Niles, IL 60714


DIRECTIONS: When arriving by car, approach from the east by heading west on Touhy, then turn right into the parking lot just east of the Shure building, which is on the corner of Touhy and Lehigh. DO NOT turn left into parking lot from Touhy heading east, as this is illegal and you may get a traffic ticket. Enter at the employee entrance on the east side of the building and register at the guard desk. A valid driver's license must be presented at the guard desk when registering.

DINNER: Dinner (optional but please RSVP) will begin at 6:30pm. Reservation required, contact Treasurer Teri Grossheim at tgrosshe@depaul.edu by Tuesday, June 7th. Jimmy John's sandwiches will be provided. Let Teri know if you have a preference for no-cheese and/or vegetarian. Price is $10 for non-members and $8 for members and students.

ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: Larry Crane will discuss his relationship to recording equipment through the years. Many times he has perceived this gear as a necessary evil, a burden, a coveted desire, and at points something that bores him to tears to talk about. Equipment has let him down and also performed miracles. Thoughts about how different recording setups enhanced or detracted from the recording experience will be presented. Various pieces of recording equipment will be considered with the songs recorded on them heard. It's all about his journey capturing music with the gear at hand, slowly finding out what gear sounds better and learning what really matters when setting out to make quality recordings.

ABOUT THIS MONTH'S SPEAKER: Larry Crane is the editor and founder of Tape Op Magazine (founded 1996), owner of Jackpot! Recording Studio (started in 1997), a freelance engineer who has worked across the US and internationally, and an archivist for the Estate of Elliott Smith. Tape Op Magazine is currently the largest circulation recording magazine in the world and is published in the US and UK. Jackpot!

Is there a cost for this? Currently laid off so my funds are pretty non-existent..
I am the terrible byproduct of the erosion of Jeff's 'society'.

I'm totally interested in Larry's address. I should be doing something less fun and more related to my current lack of job, but damn, even my wife sent the email about this.
