The Audio Engineering Society’s Fellowship Award is given to ‘a member who had rendered conspicuous service or is recognized to have made a valuable contribution to the advancement in or dissemination of knowledge of audio engineering or in the promotion of its application in practice’.
Today at the 147th AES Convention, I was given the Fellowship Award for valuable contributions to, and for encouraging and guiding the next generation of researchers in, the development of audio and musical signal processing.
This is quite an honour, of which I’m very proud. And it puts me in some excellent company. A lot of greats have become Fellows of the AES (Manfred Schroeder, Vesa Valimaki, Poppy Crum, Bob Moog, Richard Heyser, Leslie Ann Jones, Gunther Thiele and Richard Small…) which also means I have a lot to live up to.
And thanks to the AES,
