Paul’s life-long love affair with classical music began in his teenage years and he went on to graduate from the Queensland Conservatorium with the University Medal. As composer, pianist and musical director he has worked in theater (Münchener Kammerspiele, Hebbel Am Ufer, Gessner Allee, Neuköllner Oper, Bar Jeder Vernunft, Pfalz Theater, Brisbane Powerhouse) and film (including live silent film soundtracks for the Australian Cinémathèque) as well as creating music for his own concerts and recordings.  In 2006, he moved to Berlin and his alter-ego (kunstlername) Montmorensy was born. He now has a website and creates pop music with a classical-theatrical flavour, drawing his inspiration from an eternal sense of wonder at the world, the universe and the poetical way of the everyday.
