John Leonard


Country: UK

John Leonard is a theatre and exhibition sound designer and effects recordist from London. With a history of 30 years in the sound business, John brings us some dynamic and rare sound effects. His Hong Kong Terminal Ferry chimes the full Westminster clock then strikes 12, plus a Spitfire Mk IX takes a pass so fast and low you'll duck for cover! He now records in B-Format Surround at high sample rates and bit-depth, so his SFX are of the highest quality. John's theatre work has been heard all over the world and his effects are used in many other theatre, film and TV productions.
