About

Paul headshot by Aleks Karjaka Paul Pinto is glad to be making sounds and imagery for people. He's a composer, writer and multi-disciplinary performer who founded the music collectives thingNY, Varispeed and LoveLoveLove, with whom he creates immersive, durational and dramatic chamber and electronic music. His last few releases include Just Love, Patriots with Jeffrey Young, Empty Words with Varispeed, and Robert Ashley's Improvement. As a vocalist, Paul works on a diverse array of new projects, including performing Peter Maxwell Davies' Eight Songs for a Mad King, originating the role of Balaga in Dave Malloy's Broadway musical Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, and in his own work, including the opera Thomas Paine in Violence with Joan La Barbara, and the Resonant Bodies Festival commission of 15 Photos. During COVID times, Paul has written music for Antigone (Colgate University), Mad Forest (Fisher Center at Bard), and Tartuffe (Moliere in the Park), and co-created the online shows SubtracTTTTTTTTT, A Series of Landscapes, and Motivators with thingNY. Now he's creating a multimedia installation about Whiteness with Kameron Neal, a string quartet for the Rhythm Method, a song cycle for Quince Ensemble, and a multitude of other gifts for a multitude of performers at a multitude of distances.
