The 2013 Central Region Audio Engineering Society Student Summit took place on Webster University’s campus March 22-24, attracting roughly 200 attendees from 22 different schools and 16 different states.

The annual event is organized by Webster School of Communications student members of the Audio Engineering Society.

Dennis Leonard from Skywalker Sound delivered the keynote speech, which focused on audio post-production for films and also live sound reinforcement. Leonard has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Sound for Polar Express and Castaway and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Sound Editing for Polar Express.

Matthew Creek, chair of the Webster University Audio Engineering Society was one of the event organizers.

“I was pleased with this year’s summit,” said Creek. “Planning the event took a large amount of effort from Webster’s student chapter of AES. It was great to see all of the smiling faces from people who really have a passion for audio.”

Ironman Sound Industries helped support the event with audio gear throughout the weekend, and James Dunn from Global Marketing & Communications helped by designing the event program.
