Currently scheduled to conduct the Dolby Atmos mix for Gravity is multiple Academy Award-nominated re-recording mixer Skip Lievsay, in collaboration with re-recording mixer Niv Adiri. Academy Award-nominated Glenn Freemantle will be the supervising sound editor and sound designer on the Dolby Atmos mix.
