Scot Charles

Scot Charles is an award-winning sound designer and engineer. He’s worked as a location sound mixer on feature films, documentaries and commercials, as well as an audio post-studio mixer. Over his career, he’s done live concert mixing for such notables as Sarah Vaughan, Tower of Power, Bobby McFerrin, Blood Sweat & Tears, Diane Schuur, Bud Shank and Kevin Eubanks. He also co-produced and mixed several albums for UW professor of jazz studies and noted pianist Marc Seales.

Charles has been nominated for an Emmy four times, winning twice — in 2000 for his work on the National Geographic special Avalanche: The White Death and in 2016 for sound design on the PBS special The Last Orangutan Eden. In 2004, he was honored with a Teaching Excellence Award for his work with the Certificate in Audio Production. His teaching philosophy is: All equipment and software evolve and become outdated. Learning how to listen and trust your own ears are the true lasting values of audio education.
