Silent Conversations
Paul Ellis (with Steve Roach)
2005 Groove Unlimited (CD) – import

Electronic artist Paul Ellis reaches deeper into his talent for rich, melodic based electronic music for the mind and comes up with a fully matured release of striking pieces. Elegant and sophisticated throughout, the CD covers a wider range of terrain than his previous release. He brings in a few acoustic elements as well, and knows how to blend these with the right touch. Add to this some fine guest performances, including Steve Roach on four tracks. Foundations for two of these tracks were created from live Timeroom improvs with Paul, Steve, Will Merkel and Jeffrey Koepper.

Echo System
Paul Ellis, Craig Padilla
2004 Groove Unlimited GR-099 (CD) – Netherlands import

This collaboration is rooted in the love of classic Euro-German 70's synth music and the desire to keep the fire burning today. Like Paul Ellis's inspired solo work, this doesn't stand in the imitative shadow of great works of the past, but draws inspiration from them. The pieces have a nice live feel and playful quality, with resonate sequences and pulsing melodic forms throughout. It feels good in the ears, and like the best electronic music it lights up the imagination and stimulates the brain in interesting ways.

The Sacred Ordinary

The Sacred Ordinary
Paul Ellis
2004 Groove Unlimited GR-098 (CD) – Netherlands import
Produced by Steve Roach

On THE SACRED ORDINARY, Paul's artistry in creating a palette of rich emotional sounds sets a foundation from which he weaves a series of electronic web-like pieces with a keen sense of melodic invention and dimensional symmetry. There is a hint of nostalgia in these tracks as well, if one has been privy to the classic melodic sequencer-style electronic music periods over the past few decades. This brings another kind of depth to the experience, while at the same time this music is really about the here and now as it unfolds with a kind a graceful patience and awareness to detail that keeps pulling you in deeper with each play.

Paul Ellis

Paul Ellis is a talented electronic artist who displays a fine sense of sound design, melodic invention, composition and improvisation. He draws from the minimal-sequencer style school while merging with space and classic electronic soundscapes shaped into a space all his own.
