On Tuesday evening, August 24th The New York Times, was on hand to cover the Audio Engineering Society NY Section's 40th Anniversary Salute to Electric Lady Studios and the Jimi Hendrix legacy. The panel included Jimi's sister, Janie Hendrix, CEO/President, Experience Hendrix; Eddie Kramer, engineer of all the Hendrix recording sessions; studio architect/acoustician John Storyk who began his career by designing Electric Lady: Grammy-winning engineer/producers Tony Platt (AC/DC, Foreigner), Bob Margouleff (Stevie Wonder) and Malcolm Cecil; Electric Lady Recording Studios manager, Lee Foster; and Lenny Kaye, Patti Smith's guitarist and frequent Electric Lady recording artist.
Over eighty music industry pro's were in attendance, and thousands of viewers witnessed the two-hour+ event online via live streaming provided by CBS.
Jimi Hendrix celebrated the opening of his studio in NY's Greenwich Village on August 26, 1970. On Sept. 18th that year the iconic 27-year-old guitarist died. In addition to his lasting musical legacy, Hendrix left a studio which continues to this day to produce hits for artists ranging from Dylan, Bowie, Coldplay, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, U2, Sheryl Crow, The Strokes, Jay-Z, Beyonce and Kanye West.
AES New York Section Committee Member David Bialik reports, "Our goals for this event were to honor one of NYC's longest-lived studios; to pay tribute to the indelible mark its founder left on contemporary music and, to raise awareness of the Audio Engineering Society. Initial feedback from attendees, online viewers and The New York Times indicate our success on all counts."
