- About Us
Fred began his career in France, where he worked for Sonofrance, a well-established sound company in Paris. His background in electronics and passion for music led him naturally into the field of audio consulting and studio design. After several years, Fred decided to specialize in engineering. He became a freelance broadcast engineer working for major television networks as well as a staff engineer at Parisign Records.
In 1989, Fred came to New York where he spent a total of nine years at Sear Sound. He was the chief recording engineer there, and also collaborated with Walter Sear in building and customizing unique pieces of vintage gear during the first four years. He then turned his focus to mastering, which really suited his talent and interests. Walter Sears decided to build Studio B where Fred spent the remaining five years there, mastering albums for independent and major label artists.
In 1999, Fred joined Absolute Audio where he was on staff for five years before founding Kevorkian Mastering, Inc. in 2004. At Absolute, Fred sharpened his mastering skills and built up quite an impressive list of clients. In April of 2005, Fred moved to a new mastering facility designed and built by Avatar Studios where he continues providing excellent mastering services. His mastering room is located on the 3rd floor.
Fred’s album credits include The White Stripes, Maroon 5, Dave Matthews Band, Sonny Rollins, Iggy Pop, The National, Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams, Phish, Billy Cobham and many others.
