Paul Johnson

Paul Johnson (b. 1997) studied composition with David Vayo and Kyle Shaw, and has composed chamber pieces based on large-scale processes structured improvisation, and game rules. He holds a degree in mathematics and physics from Illinois Wesleyan University, and is interested in Erv Wilson's combinatorial and graph theoretic approaches toward tuning spaces. He is currently pursuing instrument building, and wants to use Harry Partch's "Corporiality" as a unifying concept for both popular and spectral composition.
