Thursday, April 19, 2018, 6:30 – 8:30pm
Andy Hildebrand is the mastermind behind Auto-Tune, a controversial yet globally adopted digital technology that corrects a singer’s pitch to make it in tune, in real time—revolutionizing vocal recording and performance. With a PhD in electrical engineering, Dr. Andy’s prolific career ranged from working as a geophysicist at Exxon to co-founding Landmark Graphics to starting Antares Audio Technologies where he developed Auto-Tune. Dr. Andy will be interviewed by sound studies historian Trevor Pinch of Cornell University about his inventive life, followed by questions from the audience.
