IDG World Expo and the Berklee College of Music today announced the Dream Studios, an interactive exhibit at Macworld Conference & Expo in Boston that will simulate state-of-the-art music studios based on the Mac. Designed and developed by Berklee faculty and students, the Dream Studios will provide attendees with an opportunity to experience the most sophisticated and innovative tools for audio production. Macworld Conference & Expo will take place July 12-14, 2004 at the new Boston Convention & Exhibition Center (BCEC); the exhibit floor will open on Tuesday, July 13.
The Dream Studios will showcase the latest hardware and software available to build cutting-edge music production setups. Music students, hobbyists, songwriters, cover bands and professionals will be able to take self-guided tours of the Dream Studios, participate in demonstrations and listen to presentations by Berklee faculty.
The exhibit will feature three separate studio configurations: the Dream Mobile Studio for use on the road, the Dream Entry Level Studio for use at home, and the Dream Project Studio for professional users. The Dream Studios will be held on the exhibit floor and are open to all attendees at Macworld Boston.
"The Dream Studios exhibit will give attendees a closeup look at the hardware and software used to build a Mac music-making studio," said David Mash, vice president for information technology at Berklee College of Music. "This will be a great chance to check out the gear in actual real-world use, and hear Berklee faculty and students discuss the equipment and demonstrate music projects created on these types of systems."
