New York - Sep 1, 2011 - The on-going AES DVD Oral History Project is dedicated to preserving the genius of iconic audio pioneers in their own words. In conjunction with the upcoming 131st AES Convention set for Oct. 20 - 23 in New York, Committee Chair Jim Anderson developed a series of YouTube clips and promo videos to highlight the series.

Beginning Sept. 4, 2011, one video per day will automatically be delivered to the phones of subscribers. The promos will also be posted on YouTube and Facebook and Twitter. The campaign will wrap on Oct. 23, 2011, the last day of the 131st Convention.

In addition giving Convention attendees and all pro audio enthusiasts a taste of the DVDs, Anderson created 17 1950s-style movie promo videos replete with period graphics. Anderson also edited 50 best of three-minute sample videos. Viewers can subscribe to receive the 3-minute videos by texting AES to 757575 on mobile devices in the United States and Canada.

"The Oral History Project represents a huge commitment to posterity," Jim Anderson adds. "Initiated in 1997 by long-time AES member Irv Joel, guided by Bill Wray and edited by Harry Hirsch it provides an invaluable link to the past as the audio innovators and industry leaders who built the foundation of our industry personally describe their contributions. From Les Paul to Bruce Martin, Frank Abbey, Ioan Allen and John Meyer, this rich legacy should be of huge interest to industry pros and students alike."
