Paul Wirkus, born 1967 in Poland and resident of Cologne, is a producer of improvised and electronic music.

His works have been reviewed and lauded by magazines such as The Wire, De:Bug, Spex, etc. The Mimikry album is distributed in Western Europe by a-musik of Cologne.

His album "Inteletto d`Amore" (Quecksilber / Staubgold) was month`s selected CD in The Wire in march 2004. Staubgold also released his last album "Déformation Professionnelle" in autumn 2006. The current solo program of Paul Wirkus is an electronic live set. The set-up consists of tremolo effects, mini disc recorders, small analog synth, laptop and a mixing desk. The sound material is based on samples of string quartets and solo piano, oscillators, mixed with hissing and feedbacking noises of mic amplifiers in overdrive. These elements converge to a contemplative area of sound, charged up by polyrhythmic figures, syncopations of asynchronous rhythmic patterns and sparse melodic tracks.

Pulsating loops and tremolos merge to a whirring experimental lo fi aesthetic. Apart from his solo program, Wirkus is also collaborating with other musicians, e.g. Barbara Morgenstern, Stefan Schneider (To Rococo Rot) , Johannes Frisch (Kammerflimmer Kollektief), Mikolaj Trzaska, Marcin Dymiter (aka Emiter). Live on festivals: SONAR, Barcelona; Musique Volantes, Paris; c/o pop, Cologne. Read more on Last.fm.
