A highlight of the AES, especially for young, up-and-coming engineers is the Student Recording Competition, where audio engineering students from around the country submit an example of their work in hopes of being recognized by the AES judging committee. There are a number of different audio categories in the competition, but API sponsored the Surround Non-Classical category and provided an A2D for the winner. Middle Tennessee State University student Jeremy Dudman entered his recording "Visceral Vernacular" by Tim Lake — one of eight songs he recorded for his Master of Fine Arts final project — and won! Jeremy told us that his goal for his overall project was to arrange, record and produce every track while consciously envisioning the outcome in surround sound. It's just a coincidence, but Jeremy's project was mixed on the 48-channel API Vision in Studio A at MTSU. We're glad to see that he got the recognition his hard work deserved. Congrats, Jeremy!
