Yverdon-les-Bains, 13th October 2022 – 45 years ago, Alain Roux founded what would become PSI Audio – the studio monitor speaker brand revered across the globe for its impeccably accurate, transparent and natural sound reproduction. The anniversary celebration from 27 th to 29 th October 2022 will feature two illustrious speakers: Boris Blank and Philippe Weiss.

ZHdK: up-to-date education

Being the largest art academy in Switzerland, the Zurich University of the Arts has always built bridges between disciplines. Apart from traditional arts such as dance, theatre, and film, ZHdK also focusses on digital art forms and media production. The university has its own conservatory with a record label, offering courses for sound engineers. With the introduction of a new master’s degree course on sound design, ZHdK decided to put particular emphasis on three-dimensional audio format Dolby Atmos. The obligatory big mixing stage is enhanced by a smaller mixing room with a 7.1.4 speaker setup that reveals every minute detail of an immersive mix – with reliable PSI Audio monitors.

Boris Blank and Philippe Weiss speak at anniversary event

To appropriately celebrate 45 years of PSI Audio, the Swiss manufacturer has announced two prominent speakers. The first is Boris Blank of Yello, who will speak about his inspirations, his way of working through changing technology and the future of his music. The pioneer of electronic music is always on the lookout for the special sounds for his characteristic style of creating music – a style recently awarded with the Grand Prix Suisse de Musique 2022. Philippe Weiss may be less well-known to the general public, his work is hugely popular, however. The Swiss-born sound engineer has worked with artists such as Madonna, Drake, Charles Aznavour, Bastian Baker, Alicia Keys, Erik Truffaz and David Guetta and recently won a Grammy award for mixing the album “Subconsciously” by Black Coffee. Philippe Weiss will speak about his career path, the pitfalls to avoid when working as a sound engineer, how to work with big names like Madonna and how to successfully conduct business among artists.

45 years of Swiss precision speakers

Boris Blank and Philippe Weiss are but two examples of audio professionals who cherish sound and are cherished by audiophiles around the world – which is why they are the perfect speakers for a PSI Audio event. Like Blank and Weiss, PSI Audio aims for sonic perfection, for the unblemished reproduction of sound not marred by compromise. The all-analogue designs are minutely designed and built in the company’s own workshop, and every single product is painstakingly calibrated in the anechoic chamber before it leaves the house. The amount of care and work invested in PSI Audio speakers is breathtaking – as is the experience of listening to music through the Swiss precision speakers.
