Graham Blyth, founder of Soundcraft in 1973, Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Fellow of the Audio Engineering Society, will perform his 32nd concert recital for the AES on Saturday 22nd May at 8 PM at Temple Church, (http://www.templechurch.com) built by the Knights Templar, located near Fleet Street / Embankment in London.
Today, Graham is Technical Director at Soundcraft Studer's headquarters in Potters Bar and remains one of the world's most respected audio designers, with a string of leading products to his name. These include the first flight cased touring console--the Soundcraft Series 1--in 1975, the Series 5, MH and GB ranges, through to today's leading tour and installation range of Vi Series digital consoles. Graham is widely recognised for the easy-to-use, intuitive user-interface of his consoles as well as the audio quality driven through his many innovations including a range of superb GB mic pre-amplifiers and the â€˜British sound' of the GB30 EQ.
What many people don't realise is that Graham is a world-renowned organist and has played this complex instrument in famous churches all over the world as part of the AES's programme of annual events since 1993.
