25-Seven Systems VP publishes aural architecture book

25-Seven Systems has announced the release of a book by its VP and director of engineering, Dr. Barry Blesser. A former MIT professor widely considered one of the fathers of the digital audio revolution, Blesser’s “Spaces Speak, Are You Listening?” has just been published by MIT Press.

Blesser, an AES Fellow and former AES president, co-authored the book with his wife of 35 years, Dr. Linda-Ruth Salter, an independent scholar specializing in interdisciplinary studies. The book examines the broad question of how listeners experience space in a wide variety of applications across a diverse range of cultures.

Blesser is perhaps best known in the audio field for his invention of the first commercial digital audio reverberation system, the EMT-250. He also helped start Lexicon in the 1970s, the first digital audio product company, and holds many audio and DSP-related patents. He was an associate professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT from 1969 to 1978, and remains active as a consultant, working in product development, engineering management and risk engineering for more than 50 companies. As the director of engineering for 25-Seven Systems, Blesser’s time compression algorithms are the core of the company’s award-winning product, the Audio Time Manager.
