In this episode of the Immersive Audio Podcast, Oliver Kadel and Monica Bolles are joined by the field recordists Mélia Roger and Grégoire Chauvot, from Paris, France.

Mélia Roger is a sound designer for film and art installations. She has a classical music background and has a Master’s Degree in sound engineering (ENS Louis-Lumière, Paris). She spent the last year of her Master’s in the Transdisciplinary Studies Program at the Zurich University of the Arts, Switzerland, where she developed an artistic approach to sound, working with voice and field recordings. She is now living between Paris and Zurich, working in post-production for film and her personal art projects.

Grégoire Chauvot is a sound designer who graduated from the prestigious La Femis in Paris. Working mainly with cinema, he uses field recording to the foreground in his approach to film sound and never hesitates to leave the studio in search of new material. His interest in collecting unique and immersive sounds led him to develop in collaboration with  Mélia Roger and HAL a recording rig designed specifically for Dolby Atmos capture.

Mélia and Grégoire talk about their collaboration with HAL Audio resulting in the development of a 7.0.2 audio recording rig designed to capture Dolby Atmos natively and the recent launch of the Urban Atmos SFX library for the multichannel postproduction workflow.
