He is a composer, sonologist, researcher and occasional performer who works largely with algorithmic composition systems for traditional instruments and electronics.

Paul’s work has been presented internationally in concerts throughout Europe, the US, Canada, and Australasia, and ranges from compositions involving instruments and electronics to media works. Paul successfully completed a major research project – to reconstruct and document the music played by Australia’s first computer (CSIRAC) – while he was a composer-in-residence at the Computer Science department of the University of Melbourne.
