Episode notes

Leslie Gaston-Bird is a re-recording mixer and sound editor with over 30 years of audio engineering experience.

Currently specialising in mixing feature-length films, she is also a voting member of The Recording Academy (Grammys), was previously Governor-at-Large for the Audio Engineering Society, and is a member of the Association of Motion Picture Sound and Motion Picture Sound Editors. Her book, Women in Audio, features almost 100 profiles and stories of female audio engineers throughout history.

In this episode of Create the Future, we speak with Leslie about her audio engineering journey through to her recent PhD, entitled Immersive & Inclusive, which seeks to understand and address the lack of representation in immersive audio. Leslie shares tales from her Women In Audio book, and we hear how—as a classically trained pianist and electric bassist herself—creativity is at the heart of everything she does.

New episodes of ‘Create the Future: An Engineering Podcast’ every other Tuesday.
