Resonance Music Studio
My name is Paul Edwards and I am the owner of Resonance Music Studio. The Studio opened in February 2016 and since then I have worked with local artists and various companies in Bridgend and South Wales. The business continues to grow making professional links across the UK.
A Little Bit About Me…
I started playing the guitar and keyboard aged 11 and, when attending comprehensive school, joined the orchestra and choir achieving grade 8 on the French Horn. During this time I had a fantastic foundation and experience being part of the Glamorgan Four Counties Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra and Wind Band. I’ve performed a vast range of repertoire with challenging works including the Theme from West Side Story to the Planets Suite to The New World Symphony. This orchestral experience has been extremely advantageous for my composition and song writing skills, meaning that I am adaptable to many music styles.
Over the years these classical music skills have honed my knowledge and use of music theory and in 2006 I increased my ability further when I trained at UWIC, completing a BA Hons in Secondary Music Education, to teach music at secondary school.
I’ve always been a singer songwriter and have written songs in the variety of bands that I’ve been a part of. As a guitarist, I have played in many styles ranging from acoustic, brit pop, indie, rock, and heavy metal. I have many guitar idols including Paul Gilbert, Eddie Van Halen, and Chet Atkins.
As I have developed my guitar and writing skills I’ve also honed my recording and production skills over the years. Starting with a 4 track cassette recorder and writing midi files on a Comodore Amiga. I’ve since progressed to using more sophisticated industry standard equipment and I am currently using a variety of brands including Presonus, Art, Peavey, Waves, and Izotope to name a few. I’ve been privileged to record with different bands in various studios across south wales and to gain work experience in respected and established companies.
The highlight of my career so far was to work alongside top ranking chart producers Ian Wallman (Beyonce, Shakira), and John Fortis ( Ellie Goulding, Raozrlight) in writing sessions.
I have a degree in Computer Animation (2004) from GCADT which includes skills in film studies, film editing and use of programs including flash, adobe photoshop, adobe premiere and 3D studio max.
Graphic Design, Flash Animation – Prior to my teaching degree I worked as a flash animator for a website and as a graphic designer for a printing company.
The film and art skills above give me the advantage of an understanding of the film making process for ease in collaboration when working as part of a film team.
