Music Technology student Xiaowei Luo has been awarded the Gold award in the 2021 AES Student Recording Competition. The competition is an opportunity for students at AES international conventions to receive feedback and recognition for their audio production work. The first prize Gold award is given to a recording that “is judged to be artistically and technically extraordinary by professional standards and could be award-worthy in the marketplace as a commercial release." In offering his congratulations, Music Tech program director Paul Geluso wrote, “You are the first NYU student to win that award – so thank you for representing us so well!!”
