Members of the Central Indiana Section of the Audio Engineering Society-
After some delay due to the present health crisis, we are once again preparing to hold our biennial section election! This election will include the positions of section chair, vice-chair, secretary, and treasurer, as well as committee members. Candidates for these positions must be AES member in good standing who list Central Indiana as their primary section. To nominate yourself or another member of the Central Indiana Section, please email the name, member number, email address, and short bio & headshot (if available) to the current section secretary, Brett Leonard (email@example.com) by Thursday, January 20th, 2022. In addition to section officer elections, the upcoming ballot will also include a proposed change of the Central Indiana Section’s name to the Indiana Section, intended to reflect that our Section activities are open to all throughout the state by removing the reference to the central Indiana geographic area, which often has been misinterpreted as being restrictive. The full text of the relevant changes to the bylaws will be included in the ballot.
Voting will open on Monday, January 24th, 2022 via a secure, anonymous online ballot using your AES member number, and voting will remain open for two weeks. Following voting, election results will be announced at the next section meeting, held virtually on Tuesday, February 8th, 2022 at 7 PM.
We are looking forward to a great year, a variety of new events/meetings, and a happy New Year!

To help get the year 2021 started in a positive way, we have opted for a virtual “Social Hour.” This will be an opportunity to re-connect with your professional friends in the audio and related fields…
– catch up on what you’ve been doing
– chat about what’s ahead
– share any concerns or positive events during the pandemic
– chat about industry happenings, changes, trends
– find out which company bought out the other
We hope this will be a way to help engage members and professionals in looking forward to a solid recovery in the New Year. If there are enough participants, we will set up breakout rooms to provide a better opportunity to share among a smaller group.
Looking forward to seeing and hearing from you on January 5th! Don’t forget to bring your favorite drink so we can to toast to everyone’s health and well-being in the New Year.

How does the modern engineer deal differently with reinforcement of this demanding musical genre? Dr. Ian Corbett, renowned live sound and location recording engineer, and author of Mic It!, presents his approach to operating in the world of acoustic jazz to create the ideal experience for both the audience and musicians on stage. Join us for discussion, live demonstrations, and Q&A!

Join us for a hands-on talk with Alan Alford, audio engineer for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, as he explains the details and challenges for the ISO’s 34 st annual IPL Yuletide Celebration musical production.

There are two Yuletide productions that day, one at 2:00 PM and the other at 8:00 PM. Frankie Moreno is this year’s host. You may wish to attend one of these (your option) in order to have a greater appreciation for the magnitude and complexity of the task of handling live sound for this major production. (We are not able to hold a block of tickets; that is, you must purchase your own ticket(s), available online at www.indianapolissymphony.org.) HCT is located at 45 Monument Circle, Indianapolis. Parking is available in several nearby garages and at Circle Center (underground).
