Paul Pinto

BIOGRAPHY

New York native, Paul Pinto is quickly making himself known in the avant-garde music circles of the metro area as a “cutting-edge” composer, an exciting performer and founding director of the city’s freshest classical ensemble, thingNY. Paul has collaborated with a diverse group of artists including Pauline Oliveros, the Berkshire Choral Festival, Andrew Livingston, Elizabeth Rogers, Thomas Piercy, animal nudity and Pinky Weitzman, and his music has been performed by the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, the Cuarteto Latinoamericano, the Royal Scottish Academy Chamber Chorus ensemble loadbang, the Carnegie Mellon Concert Chorus and of course, thingNY. As a multi-instrumental and vocal improviser, Paul has lent his talents to collaborative projects in theatre and film. His own improvised compositions and performances were employed in Glasgow’s 2005 Shakespeare in the City Festival, and more recently, in the charming animated short by his brother Daniel, Hedgehug, which has been cited by the Nicktoons Animation Festival and the Animation Block Party. His ongoing work with music improvisers, painters, directors and dancers continues to be the foundation of his own artistic creations.
