TMO & Recording Academy Honor Rupert Neve On His 91st Birthday
On Monday, July 31, Texas Music Office Director Brendon Anthony joined the Texas Chapter of the Recording Academy to honor audio engineering pioneer (and Wimberley resident) Rupert Neve, celebrating his 91st birthday, and his incredibly influential career.
Anthony presented Neve with a proclamation signed by Governor Greg Abbott, honoring Neve's incomparable contributions to the audio engineering industry.
The Texas Chapter of the Recording Academy - along with Yamaha - gathered its members, some from traveling from around the world, to honor the career of Technical GRAMMY® winner Neve for his legendary contributions to the recording industry. Although Neve began his career in his native home of England, he and his family have spent the last few decades as Texans living in Wimberley, TX, where he continues to head-up his world renown audio equipment manufacturing plant, Rupert Neve Designs.
Taking place on his 91st birthday, the Recording Academy celebrated Neve's innovations in a career that has spanned more than half of a century. Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick flew in for the salute to Neve, delighting the music business professionals in attendance with tales of how cruicial Neve's recording consoles were in his work recording the Beatles.
