EVC in major music exam
Paul Birchall joined EVC in 2014 with the release of two volumes of Dally Expressions, modern piano works in minimalist style for the late intermediate-level pianists. Paul says:
'I set myself the task of composing a new piece every day for 28 days. The pieces are mostly improvised with some editing taking place afterward, allowing for a more considered final result. It is up to the pianist to interpret the mood of each piece and to decide on the tempo as the editorial tempo markings for each piece are merely a suggestion.'
Paul has written music for TV, film, theatre, and his own record label S.A.M. Records. In 2013, as part of their Future Music Festival, he premiered a short version of his first opera at The University Of Central Lancashire.
Paul's credits as a keyboard player and musical director include world tours with M People, Heather Small, Wang Chung, and Cutting Crew. Recording/producing and writing credits include M People, Heather Small, Jim Diamond, Snake Davis, The Corrs, Bewitched, and his own band Combination Head.
