Paul was born in Windsor in the U.K. and now lives in Brasilia Brazil where he composes, plays and records a variety of musical genres. Paul's musical background is mainly Classical and Jazz. He started playing Recorder when he was about five and soon after he took up Flute and commenced classical studies. When he was in his teens he bought his first Sax, a Selmer MK6 Soprano, Paul recalls "Not the best Soprano in the world but incentive enough to get me interested in Jazz and the great musicians of the time, many of whom are still as creative today as when I started to discover them all those years ago." Paul experimented with a variety of instruments including Violin, Clarinet and Accordion, later on he learnt Piano which was an instrument which he had always wanted to learn. Paul says "These days a knowledge of Keyboards or other MIDI Controllers is essential to exploit the amazing world of Virtual Instrument Technologies".

Paul principally play Woodwinds Saxes and Flutes, Wind Synthesizers, MIDI Controllers and also Piano and Keyboards. "Jazz is without a doubt the music which I enjoy playin the most, however I consider it a challenge to be able to play any style of music.

Audio Sculpturing. This is the terminology Paul uses for composing and creating music using Virtual Instrument Technology, Paul says "The advances in Sampling and Virtual Instruments allow the modern musician to compose, arrange and play music that was previously inconceivable."

Sycondrian Re-entry

This is the opening track of my Sycondrian Worlds project. After countless light years of interstellar travel the on-board systems disconnect the granular fusion from hyper speed and prepare the ship for the dangerous re-entry sequence to the Anda-Sycondrian atmosphere. The track is meant to represent three stages of the journey back to Sycondria. Deep space, approach and re-entry and finally touch down.


This track was recorded by the Sycondrian Tribesmen who live high up in the cool mountainous regions of Sycondria. The lead instrument is not dissimilar to the Flauta de Pan or Panpipes that can be found in South America. No loops were employed in recording this track and everything was recorded directly into Audacity using only repetition of playing. All of the synths in this piece are purely analogue.

The Stranger by Billy Joel

This is a variation on the introduction of a wonderful song by Billy Joel from the 70`s called The Stranger. The melodic part of the original song which Billy whistles I replaced with a sampled instrument called a cuatro which is a small South American guitar similar to the Brazilian cavaquinho. Lastly I arranged and played an orchestral accompaniment to conclude the music.
