Dr Paul Rhys's research activity

Paul Rhys joined Anglia Ruskin in 2007 after working at The City Lit, at Reading University and at Clare College Cambridge. Funded by the British Academy he gained a PhD in Composition in 1996 supervised by George Nicholson and spent a year at Northwestern University in the USA supported by a Wingate Foundation Scholarship. He has recently returned from a Visiting Fellowship at the University of Western Australia in Perth.

His music, which involves computers and traditional instruments, has been performed throughout Europe and in the USA, broadcast on Australian national radio and recorded on the Lorelt CD label. Recent works include Three Songs for soprano and orchestra setting poems by Primo Levi and Sri Aurobindo, a Dialogue for alto recorder and birdsong, and the Variations for Violin and Piano premiered by Paul Jackson and Mifune Tsuji. A Piano Concerto commissioned by the City Philharmonic Orchestra will be completed in 2012, and a body of theoretical work is underway in preparation for composing in 19-note equal temperament.

Paul conducts the Anglia Chamber Choir and Anglia Symphony Orchestra and was formerly conductor of the Hanover Choir in London.

He is keen to supervise research in the following areas:
  • Composition
  • Microtonality
  • Nineteen-note equal temperament
  • Live performance with computers
