Leslie Gaston-Bird- Sound Engineer and Re-recording mixer & Associate Producer

Leslie was born in Dayton, Ohio. In 1987 Leslie enrolled in Indiana University to pursue an A.S. degree in Audio Technology and a B.A degree in Telecommunications. Shortly after graduating in 1991, Leslie was hired at National Public Radio (NPR) as a Broadcast / Recording Technician. She worked on many shows, such as “Morning Edition”, “All Things Considered”, “Talk of the Nation” and “Performance Today”.

In 1995 Leslie moved to Denver to work for Colorado Public Radio, putting together hundreds of weekly features during her 7-year career there. In 2002, along with Kelley Griffin and Dan Drayer, she earned the 2002 Radio and Television Digital News Association’s Edward R. Murrow Award for Large Market Documentary.

In 2002, Leslie began working at Post Modern Company in Denver, Colorado, restoring soundtracks for classic Sony / Columbia films dating as early as the 1930’s. At the same time, she began work on her Master of Science in Recording Arts (MSRA) degree at the University of Colorado Denver.

She earned her MSRA degree in 2003 with a thesis titled, “Music Video Verite” which is a pioneering work in editing music with video and cutting them together for a seamless performance (a music video with no lip syncing but with cuts between locations). Shortly afterward, she accepted a tenure-track position at CU Denver and is now Associate Professor of Recording Arts and the Chair of the Music and Entertainment Industry Studies program.

Leslie has been involved in research with Dolby Laboratories in San Francisco and Gates Planetarium in Denver. She continues to do freelance work and is currently exploring ways to improve the audio experience as a whole. In 2011 she was granted a Fulbright award to research Blu-Ray audio at the University of York in York, England.
