My improvising plays with the timbral range of the oboe and cor anglais.

Collaborative improvisation sits at the heart of my music, which is political in the humanist sense of the word.

I perform with the Free Range Orchestra in Canterbury, with Trio CZW, and with  cellist Khabat Abas.

Trio CZW  and percussionist Ansuman Biswas recorded and released 'Whereness,' conceived and curated by Paul, in October 2020.  Artist Annie Catford created videos to accompany tracks from these albums. You can watch and listen to two of these further down this page.

In 2021 I asked Henry Dagg the create a new instrument for me which expands the tactile and interactive range of the cor anglais. The result is the gliss anglais.
