As in past years, our marketing director, Gary Boss, traveled to Japan in August for Summer Sonic, a music festival held simultaneously in Tokyo and Osaka. In this first part of his recap, Gary introduces us to the scene in Tokyo leading up to the show.
Over the past two years, we’ve had the privilege of hosting some of the most influential and knowledgeable people in the audio industry at our various trade shows and events through our “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) question and answer program.
At AES 2013, in New York City, we introduced our first AMA, where attendees at the event and participants online could ask our guests anything from questions about their favorite mics to how they got started in the business to even where they find the best pizza in NYC.
We’ve had a blast hosting our AMA sessions and wanted to compile a few of our favorite bits of knowledge from some of our most memorable guests.
InfoComm is here!

On day two of our Ask Me Anything Livestream Events at AES 2014 we sat down with GRAMMY Award-winning producer/engineer Joe Chiccarelli.
Joe Chiccarelli started his career as a musician and then, as many in the business do, became an assistant engineer, in Los Angeles. While working in the studio, Chiccarelli was given the chance of a lifetime to act as the lead engineer on Frank Zappa’s “Sheik Yerbouti” album, when Zappa’s regular engineer was unavailable for the recording. Zappa liked what he heard, and asked Chiccarelli to engineer several other albums in the coming years. And the rest is history.
The greatest minds of the country all meet at one mega event: South by Southwest (SXSW). Comprised of music, interactive and film festivals and conferences in the trendy city of Austin, Texas, SXSW is a force to be reckoned with. But how exactly did this convergence of artistry and tech come to fruition?
Since the very beginning in 1987, the South by Southwest Music Conference and Festival (SXSW) has grown into one of the most heavily attended music and tech events in the United States.
The iconic music festival is held every year around mid-March in Austin, Texas. Musicians, music enthusiasts and more recently tech enthusiasts from all over the world come together to celebrate music, film and technology.
SXSW is a whirlwind event, there’s truly nothing else like it and our team is eager to hit the streets of Austin for this year’s show!
While studio drummer Curt Bisquera (affectionately referred to as “Kirkee B.” by those who know him best) has performed with a host of world-famous artists, he is a legend in his own right.
