This video captures a life-changing event in my hi-fi and music industry career. There he was, Harry Pearson, my first mentor, my dear friend - giving the keynote speech at RMAF (Rocky Mountain Audio Fest) back in 2009. His topic? The past, present, and future of the high-end. There's a whole story behind that, believe it or not: That's for a Mercer Memo . So there was Hp, and he'd asked me earlier in the week if he could read from my first What is the Future of the High End essay for Positive-Feedback! That woulda' been an honor itself - but he decided he'd ask me to get-up, introduce myself and address the crowd on-the-spot. FUCKER...
But he said I did very well - and this is part of the origin of OccupyHifi.org.
I'm giving a speech honoring Harry at The Show Newport - I believe it's Thursday night - but I hope to have as many positive people there as possible!!
