What about that Kurzweil guy?
Everybody asks eventually: "Are you THE Kurzweil, from the people who make those synthesizers and stuff?"
In a word, no! Paul is, however, related to Ray Kurzweil, the brilliant inventor of countless computer technologies like those used in Kurzweil synthesizers.
Paul is always amused at the novelty his last name produces, but that's as far as it goes. Ray and Paul have only met each other once, at a Kurzweil family reunion which took place in New York City in 1975 when Paul was only 10 years old.
Paul is a guitarist and guitar synthesist and has used Kurzweil gear for over 25 years, but he is not affiliated in any way with Kurzweil Music Systems or the company that bought it years ago from Ray, Young Chang Akki, Ltd., which was originally a Korean piano manufacturer.
A graduate of Berklee College Of Music in Boston, Paul is currently based near Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Spending years as a professional recording engineer naturally led to the creation of his home recording studio which he calls "The Anteroom."
Starting with a modest 1/2" 8-track recorder, Paul jumped onto the Digidesign® Pro Tools® bandwagon many years before most artists, producers and engineers, having used their systems since around 1991. Ever since, he has left recording to tape behind him, and has never looked back. The Anteroom currently utilizes a 48-track Pro Tools® system.
