I am a composer, musician, and record producer with many releases on the Rising High, Rotation, Inspiral, Instinct, 2Kool, and Masters At Work labels. I composed and produced the music for the short films Shore Leave and The Dirt Inside, the Canal+ documentary La Ñ En La Araña, and a theme for Channel 5 TV. I am currently a member of the Swansea Laptop Orchestra.

Whilst living in London I had a parallel career as a music technology and web design lecturer, working extensively at Community Music, Musicworks, and Hurricane. I finally became Education & Training Manager at Gateway before moving to Wales in 2003.

I am Head of the School of Film and Digital Media at Swansea College of Art, University of Wales Trinity Saint David. My main academic interests are Communication Studies (narrative, medium theory, semiotics) and Music Technology.

  • Hello Paul, congratulations on everything you’ve done so far, Trinity sounds a good fit for you. Finally 2017 is here and the imaginary Jobs we gave ourselves back that decade ago is now;here a Reality. I don’t dream of electric sheep; my Unicorn Princess is the Real deal. Reebooting the 13BC archetype of The Doctor in Ridley Road – The Time Travellers Guild on Facebook. By day I am a gardener, out in the fields of theydon bois, weeeding. by night I hack the memetic infrastructure of hackney to allow for improbable things to happen… I built a synchronicity engine, wrote a fairytale and fell down the axis of the fourth wall right back to the Ontological Why of Deep Mind’s big hoooom.
    don’t be too hasty, the hazels whispered, a handpuppet jigsawed digits, buried on a well-line. the puzzle didn’t end there, that ceremoney of care. i have tracked the stream of conciousness way back, to the norman gate ; here, Shacklewell, the Unicorn – chained to our courts, invisibly emblazoned on police caps, the big secret antimagic glitch .; I found her, “Anardderchog”. All of our base is Beellong two We.
    I would dearly love to chat. Tonight I am awake draining the last of my neural batteries into this ear keyboard, a lucid hypretangential traceroot./.mind lode after 55± hours awake. Reunited with the love of my life after 7 years only moments apart. Things are solid, when they need to be; change is the universal constant, emergy is the qualitative experient, m over M is Mind over matter. The Human is a FiveD Organism. Our navigation screen cracked. Time Travel Happens.
    thanks for your tutorship, long may you continue. If I am ever up that way I’ll come by fourtea.
    SinceReal Regards,
