Houghton Alumnus Presented Thesis at 150th AES Spring Convention

August 11, 2021

Michael Earle, a 2021 Master of Arts in Music graduate, submitted his thesis abstract that accompanied his lecture recital, “Do You See What I Hear”, as a contribution to the Audio Engineering Society (AES) for their 150th Spring Convention. The AES is a professional body for engineers, scientists, and other individuals with an interest or involvement in the professional audio industry. This membership largely comprises of educators, engineers, and corporations who are developing devices, products, and research for audio, alongside those working in content production.

After having his thesis abstract peer-reviewed by the AES,  Michael was accepted as a Presenting Author for the 150th Convention last May.

“The School of Music is incredibly proud of the work Michael did on this project and this honor is significant, especially for a masters student, ” noted Timothy McGarvey, Professor of Conducting, Director of Instrumental Music Activities, and Wind Ensemble Conductor. “His research and subsequent lecture recital are to be highly commended and the recognition he is receiving in the field shows the importance and quality of his scholarly work.”

Michael’s paper is soon to be published through the AES with a copy available to read within their E-Library.
