Who is behind SOUNDCHICK SFX ?

Mélanie Gauthier first thought of sharing her sounds while on her first trip to Asia in 1999 where she start to collect amazing ambiences. Since then, Mélanie continued to capture miles of soundscape as a sound field recordist for documentary and personals projects.

Now surrounded with collaborators, her dream of making a Collective of Sounds Lovers is finally coming to fruition. The Collective Project started with her friend, the experienced sound designer Claude Langlois in 2014. Claude listened to all of Mélanie’s sounds and started describing each ambience, spanning from 1999 to today. Then Vital Millette joined the team and provided us with invaluable advice… and lyricism. Cyril Bourseaux, Jocelyn Lauzon (L’Oiseau son), David Elias, Simon Goulet, Philippe Scultety, Sylvain L’Espérance, Marie-Claude Gagné, Serge Beauchemin … joined SOUNDCHICK LIBRARY as sound field recordists, sound designers and foley artists and shared their sounds.

The audio voice watermark is created by the artist Brigitte Saint Aubin.

A special thanks goes to our ambassador Hugo Chevrette (CEV). And to François Vincelette to follow the adventure with his faithful love.

An audio watermark is a unique electronic identifier embedded in an audio signal, typically used to identify ownership of copyright. It is similar to a watermark on a photograph.
