Shanghai Twang is a boutique recording studio and mastering facility owned by record producer, musician, audio recordist, and mastering / mix engineer Pete Grandison.
Shanghai Twang is located in the inner Southern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, just minutes from the port suburb of Fremantle. The studios were designed by internationally-renowned designer John Sayers.
The complex is built on two levels, with a number of interconnected, multi-function acoustic spaces.
The layout caters for a broad range of recording: from solo acoustic singers to classical ensembles, choirs, rock bands and voice-over work for film or advertising.
Pete has recorded for musicians such as Eric Bibb, Bluegrass Parkway, Mike Compton, Slim Dusty, Devils on Horseback, Jim Fisher, Narasirato, Shane Nicholson, Lucky Oceans, The Blue Celts, Natalie Gillespie, Dave Johnson, Simon Marks, David Mercy, Jonathon Cope, The Galloping Foxleys, Ian Simpson, and the Velvet Playboys.
Pete has also worked with producers such as Dave Brewer (Dynamic Hepnotics, Natalie Gillespie), Ben Franz (steel player and bassist for the Waifs), James Gillard (bassist for Kasey Chambers, Mental As Anything)
Studio rates are generally hourly, daily, or by negotiation depending on the project.
