Paul Vnuk Jr is a musician working in the Tribal Ambient, Space Music and Ambient Jazz realms. This musical journey started 20 years ago with the formation of his group Ma Ja Le with ambient guitarist Christopher Short and has continued through his solo work and collaborations with artists such as Tony Gerber, Oophoi, Vir Unis, MindSpiral and more. His discography includes over a dozen critically acclaimed albums including 1998’s number 2 NAV charting album “Imaginarium”, the Hypnos fan favorite “Silence Speaks In Shadow” to his most recent ambient-jazz album, “The Moss Garden Sessions” with Greg Hurley and Brian Good. Additionally Paul has had a 12+ year career as a sound designer for Sony Creative Software, is also a noted recording engineer, producer and session percussionist and also serves as the Technical Consultant and a principal reviewer for Recording Magazine.
As of late Paul’s solo performances have been a return to vintage tribal space music. His rig typically includes analog synths, Korg Wavedrums old and new and an 8 channel live looping device. When a computer is employed it is used mainly as a mixer and a reverb machine. Half prepared motifs and half improvisation Paul spins sounds into live looped sound paintings of the moment.
