October 7,2002 18th Annual TEC Awards at AES Wilshire Grand Hotel Los Angeles, California

Hillel Resner President, Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio and Executive Producer of the TEC Awards

Noise-induced hearing loss from amplified music is a serious and growing problem. Everyone involved in entertainment technology has a personal stake in the battle for hearing safety, whether it's your own, that of your employees, or the audiences we all ultimately serve. With assistance from Mix magazine and other industry supporters, the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio (MFEA) raises thousands of dollars annually for Sound Partners, a hearing conservation program of the House Ear Institute (a world-renowned leader in otologic research and education), as well as H.E.A.R. (Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers).

Sound Partners and H.E.A.R. present educational seminars, conduct free hearing screenings and distribute free earplugs at concerts and other events. But even with the sponsorship monies raised by producing such renowned annual industry events as the TEC Awards and the Mix L.A. Open golf tournament, the MFEA contributions still fall short of the total necessary to fully fund educational efforts about this vital issue. The Mix Foundation is asking for your help in assisting it to continue to increase its commitment to funding outreach programs for hearing loss prevention. Individual gifts can make a difference, whether it's $10, 25, $50 or more. Your tax-deductible donation can be made online. Every donation - large or small - moves us closer to the goal of a better hearing future for everyone.

18th Annual TEC Awards, held in Los Angeles Monday, October 7 during the AES Convention. Hosted by actor/comedian Harry Shearer, this year's event honors creative and technical Achievements in recording and sound production, as well as presentation of the Les Paul Award to Robbie Robertson and the induction of Beatles engineer Geoff Emerick into the TEC Hall of Fame. Ticket proceeds from the awards benefit awareness of noise-induced hearing problems and support the education of future audio professionals.
