Paul is from Merseyside in the UK and is a self taught independent musician who has been playing music since the late 1980's. Its only in the last 6 years or so however that Paul has taken a professional approach to his music releasing some instrumental albums on cd and iTunes etc. Although initially Paul played acoustic and electric guitars he was always fascinated by the range of colour and atmosphere synthesizers and keyboards bring to musical composition and has now incorporated them into his music along with the use of a Roland guitar synthesizer and software synths.
In the 90's Paul studied philosophy and psychology at college before completing an honours degree in religion from Kings College London, with an emphasis on oriental religious philosophy and new religious movements. Since then Paul has travelled very extensively around Europe by train from the Arctic to as far as Athens. The anonymity and romance of sleeper train travel and long distance journeys across the continent have been a big inspiration to Paul's music. Indeed his most recent album, Train to Scandinavia, was recorded on hotels and night trains on an 18 day train trip to the Arctic and back!
Paul's interest in oriental philosophy, nature and travelling have shaped his music, evocative soundscapes both mysterious and enchanting that invite you to delve deep into the musical landscapes being painted. Paul's music is mostly improvised and recorded on the fly which adds to the flow, spontaneity and genuinely being in the moment of the music avoiding rigidity and constraint. Occasionally however, some of the compositions are more structured and developed...but not many!
Musically, Paul has been influenced by a wide variety of bands and musicians over the years, from harmony based vocal bands like Crosby Stills and Nash to progressive rock bands from the UK such as Pink Floyd, Yes and Camel. It is the latter's use and introduction of synthesizers and the use of early samplers like the famous 'mellotron' plus the musical possibilities they offer, that have shaped and inspired Paul's approach to music. In particular, it is the pioneering work of the synthesists from the progressive rock bands and the works of ambient artists such as Brian Eno that helped to shape what became known as the 'new age music' genre, a diverse and popular musical style covering areas from world music to ambient music. It is the ambient and new age styles where most of Paul's music is orientated
Paul has recently created music for a variety of collaborators creating guided meditations as well as working on repackaging and releasing old material digitally along with new albums ready to roll out.
Today, Paul's music has been heard by over 18 million people on various Youtube channels over the last few years and now with paulssounds.com, he has decided to take a more personal approach to his music and hopes to connect with new listeners via his website , iTunes etc and the new official YouTube Channel containing many videos of Paul's instrumental music.
Having been a huge admirer of electronic music from the likes of Jean-Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman amongst many others, I decided two years ago to learn as much as I could about sound design and Analogue Synths and try to compose some of my own works. Starting with my first project called Threading Shells, which is a collection of ambient pieces I put together whilst finding my way round Logic 9.
My second project called Astral Voyager is a bit more adventurous and inspired a lot by Tangerine Dream and Jean-Michel Jarre.
My current project is called New Age Voyager in which I have used a lot of Asian, African, Indian and Celtic instruments and influences to create more of a World/New Age feel yet maintaining a relaxing ambience.
There are 8 tracks in total with a running time of 40 minutes. There is also a 3 track Dance EP called Sparkle which along with New Age Voyager is now available to download from Amazon.com

My name is Tamás Töreki, I come from Hungary and I am an creative musician.
Because of my childhood experiences, I have learned to express my feelings, through music. It is the only thing in my life, that helps sharing feelings with other people.
The piano sound is indescribable. I just sit down and create.
My work of classical music and the modern sounds are created from the union. If it finds a sound to make up an image, the song is born.
I prepare my music in my own house. I create as an amateur.
Experience the miracle of me and my music. Listen to my music and see peace establishment in your thoughts.
I wish you find the beauty inside yourself.

Alexandra Gabriel blends her stunning vocal range, cello and piano into unique compositions creating a sound that may be classified as New Age but when experienced can only be described as other worldly.
Her voice naturally sits at the 432 Hz frequency and as a result the music she creates is deeply moving. This frequency is said to be mathematically consistent with the patterns of the universe and when we resonate in harmony with the spiralling pattern of nature, our sense of connection to nature is magnified...
