A composer, writer, performer and producer, Paul Pinto makes weird noises sometimes. Sometimes with his experimental music groups thingNY and Varispeed. Other times just in his living room. Sometimes he writes them on paper and makes other people make the weird noises for him. He's got a real bio somewhere around here.
[AH YES. HERE IT IS.]
