• The James Plays: Evening Standard


    The James Plays won Best Play at the Evening Standard Awards on Sunday evening.  

    Writer Rona Munro's plays depict three generations of Stewart Kings who ruled Scotland.  Paul scored James I and co-composed James II with Scottish electro duo Boards of Canada.  Receiving the award, Munro joked "Who knew 15th Century Scottish history could be so interesting?"

    The plays were directed by Laurie Sansom, at The National Theatre Scotland.

  • Errol Morris Films


    Oscar-winning director Errol Morris (The Fog of War, The Thin Blue Line) has made three new films about previous Noble Prize winners.  Paul's music was used on "The Dream", which focuses on Leymah Gbowee.  

    In the early 2000s, she led a women's peace movement, one which ended dictator Charles G. Taylor's power and sent him to the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Her efforts helped bring an end to the Second Liberian Civil War.

    Currently, he tours with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band.


  • James I and James II


    As the James plays edge nearer, Paul has been recording a variety of soloists to bring out the themes of his score, including violin, bagpipes and voices from the cast itself.

    The bagpipes, which were recorded in London, are from cast member Cameron Barnes who also plays in the Red Hot Chilli Pipers.  

    Both plays premiere at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, before taking residence at the Olivier in London.
