Mélia Roger is a sound designer for film and art installations. She has a classical music background and owns a Master Degree in sound engineering (ENS Louis-Lumière, Paris, FR). She develops an artistic approach exploring voice and field recordings, looking for intimacy and closeness through listening. She is now living between Paris and Zurich, focusing on both post-production for films, and her own artistic works.
Her artistic approach during Resilience: Artistic Residency consisted on field recording with different concepts and devices - such as soundscapes and contact microphones - in the quest for intimacy and proximity through listening to birds, wind, leaves and water.
