Meet the Panelists: Igor Maxymenko | AES Convention 2022 | Is Remote Collaboration The Future of Music Production?

Next month we’re heading to New York for the Audio Engineering Society (AES) Convention, the only professional society devoted exclusively to audio technology, bringing together audio engineers, creative artists, scientists and students from around the world. We’ll be hosting our very first live panel discussion, Is Remote Collaboration the Future of Music Production?

The panel will take place at Jacob Javits Center on Wednesday 19 October and will be moderated by Abbey Road Studios’ head of audio products, Mirek Stiles. We’re introducing you to each of our panelists in the lead up to the event and we kick things off with an introduction to our very own co-founder, Igor Maxymenko.

About Igor

Raised in Ukraine, and later moving to Israel, Maxymenko started his audio journey by learning Electronics in Community College, building an audio amplifier as his final project.  After graduating from his degree in Sound Engineering and Music Production, he spent almost 10 years at Waves Audio in various roles, from QA to Product Manager, where he met his Audiomovers counterpart, Yuriy Shevyrov.

Igor will also be joined by Berklee Professor and Prince’s sound engineer Susan Rogers, emerging solo artist and ½ of songwriting duo LYREMUSIC, Elli Moore, Grammy-winning/multi-platinum engineer Ariel Borujow.

What will we be discussing?

As part of the panel, we’ll be exploring the long-lasting effects that remote collaboration will have on our creative habits and working style, our panel will discuss topics such as:

  • What does this new remote way of working mean for our human relationships?
  • How can you create a ‘vibe in a room’ if the participants are never in the same physical space?
  • Can you build an intimate connection between an artist and a songwriter if they never meet?
  • Is creativity affected or enabled through remote technology?
