Ramsay has been interested in music and especially
the album as a cultural unit, from a very early age. After
writing and recording music in his teens he went on to
train as a recording engineer but feeling that he was the wrong side of the mixing
desk, became a member of various bands including
'PGRS' (1 album: 'Photographs of Sound' 1979), the
Southampton-based improvising music quintet 'The Omega
Ensemble', The Poor Batchelors, and the guitar duo 'Four Point Paint' with Robin Watts.
was initially conceived purely as an outlet for computer-based, indeterminate PMusic pieces created by Paul but has evolved into something broader, including RMusic releases. PR currently
lectures in Fine Art at Plymouth University and is a member of the Field Study mail art group.
works include: 'Frictional Account' exhibited in 'Works
Of Friction' (2007) (with artist Steve Thorpe); 'etude 23' premiered
at the Sound
and Film (Voices Festival) (2008); Consemble (2007-12); 'Mobile
Dawn In An Old World Garden' (2007) and "An Embroidery of British Birdsong' (2012) both for EGENIS, University of Exeter. Ongoing projects are: 'Songs of Garden Guitars' and 'MAAKOF' (2014 and ongoing).
