Mel is an award-winning composer and has worked on numerous short & feature films, dance/ choreographed films, trailers and commercials spanning a wide range of genres, including work for Lionsgate, Oscilloscope, A24, Nike, ON Running, The Speed Projectindependent directors and more. She has also done custom & library work for agencies like The Crystal Creative (PDX), SixtyFour Music (NYC, UK), Maps (PDX), Barking Owl Sound (LA, NYC) and Supervision Agency (London, NYC, Paris, LA). 

Guérison grew up playing classical violin, piano, guitar & singing and was invited on her first international tour with an orchestra when she was fourteen. She has since gone on to tour globally, arrange parts for and record with bands like Other Lives, Sleater-Kinney, Alexandra Savior, Whitney, Joseph & others.

Over the years, Mel has made it her goal to never stop learning and experimenting, whether it be learning new instruments, pushing the boundaries of recording and scoring, or different ways of emotionally interacting with the art and artists' lives that she gets to be a part of. 

Please contact Mel directly if you’re interested in collaborating, or if you’d like to hear clips from any of the films listed below that aren’t yet publicly released. She is available to work both remotely and on-site.  See CV for further elaboration on each project.
