Paul's first orchestral score for dance "Ocean's Kingdom", is out now!
7th October 2011
Marking his first foray into the word of dance, Paul has announced the general release of "Ocean's Kingdom", commissioned by the New York City Ballet.
"Ocean's Kingdom" is the first time Paul has written an original orchestral score or any kind of music for dance and is the result of a collaboration between Paul and New York City Ballet's Master in Chief Peter Martins, who have worked together to present the world premiere of a new ballet for the company's 2011/2012 season this September.

An hour long score featuring four stunning movements - Ocean's Kingdom, Hall of Dance, Imprisonment and Moonrise - the ballet tells of a love story within the story of an underwater world whose people are threatened by the humans of Earth.
A potently expressive and richly varied work, the score is Paul's most challenging and emotionally complex yet. As he explains: "What was interesting was writing music that meant something expressively rather than just writing a song. Trying to write something that expressed an emotion - so you have fear, love, anger, sadness to play with and I found that exciting and challenging."
