Hello! I’m James Trevascus, an engineer based in Bristol, UK.
I first started out working at The Panda Studios, California in 2014, where I took an assistant position under engineers Sam Pura and Ryan Ellery. Here, I got to work with bands such as The Story So Far, Hundredth, Landscapes and loads more. This is where I developed an interest in mastering, getting to work on a few of the projects that came through the studios.
After my visa was up, I came back to Bristol and started working at Invada Studios where I’m now one of the staff engineers. At Invada, we do a huge variety of different projects. There’s lots of film music recording here, which involves large string sessions and orchestral instruments, as well as synths, drums, guitars and everything in between. As well as that, we do loads of work with all types of bands, composers and more, meaning we’re lucky enough to constantly be working on a variety of different genres and projects, including recently recording The Goon Sax's latest record "Mirror II", with John Parish as producer.
Alongside this I have been working as a freelance mix and mastering engineer both between Invada and my personal studio. Two different approaches and workflows, but something I really enjoy balancing. I’ve recently been lucky enough to master some great releases, including "La Panthère Des Neiges" by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, and "In The Earth" by Clint Mansell. As well as this I recently mastered the soundtracks to "Devs" and Blanck Mass' "Calm With Horses", which both won Ivor Novello Awards for Best TV Soundtrack and Best Original Film Score respectively. I've also been lucky enough to master music for PJ Harvey, Warren Ellis, Beak>, Dama Scout, The KVB, Mom Jeans, Just Friends, Billy Nomates and loads more.
Some recent production and mixing projects include work with Foreign Affairs, Black Flies, Pet Shimmers, Agata, The Pleasure Dome and more. I have also recently mixed the full score for Amazon's Hanna Season 3 by Ben Salisbury, Geoff Barrow and The Insects, which is coming soon. Other credits include orchestral and soundtrack mixing for "Rocher Mistral" by Jake Bright, and mixing the score by Noe Gonzalez for an upcoming Korean feature film.
As well as being staff engineer at Invada, I’m also available as a freelance engineer and have worked at many different studios in the UK including Real World, Rockfield, The Pool, Snap Studios and more. I’m always happy to work anywhere, so feel free to get in touch if you need an engineer!
