Composition & Songwriting
Paul has written for full orchestras, solo instruments, and everything in between—he’s spliced together found sounds from his weekly life, composed a piece for an ensemble of Stylophones, and performed a wall at the Getty Museum.
Paul’s music for the screen covers a broad spectrum of musical genres, but generally speaking, he is drawn to all-things absurd and/or sincere. He’s known for his knack for writing catchy song melodies and incorporating inventive timbres into his music.
Compositional obsessions include: anything lo-fi, vaporwave, quiet storm, traditional Ghanan drum rhythms, hardcore feminist punk for 6-12 year olds, “genre-surfing,” aleatoric composition techniques, and Spaghetti Western cues for mundane contexts.

Paul’s sound design is dense with detail, and at times blurs the line between music and sound.
