New Single: Attic Ladder

“Connecticut emerging artist and producer Paul Michael is back with a killer instrumental called Attic Ladder. If you are into electronic music with a hypnotic vibe then you are in for a treat. Paul showcases here his producing skills and they are awesome. There's a groovy futuristic house vibe to the song that got me instantly hooked to it, giving me vibes of movies like Tron or Blade Runner.”

Interview with Voyage houston

Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
"I grew up in the small town of Brenham Texas and have painted for as long as I can remember. I loved the art community of Houston and was involved with a few of the art programs. In 2013 I was invited to attend the Western Art Academy and a year later at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo one of my paintings, The Procession, was sold at the live auction.

I then had an opportunity to attend art school in Connecticut at Lyme Academy College of Fine Art and have been studying there for the past four years (I am now in my final semester of senior year). I now work for a painting conservator helping in painting and frame restoration.

I’m looking to continue my studies at the graduate level and hope to continue to make work that blurs the line between the real and virtual world."

"Learn how virtual reality (VR) and a combination of real and virtual worlds (augmented reality AR) can support engaged learning from STEM to the humanities. What was initially a tool for gaming and entertainment has rapidly evolved into immersive learning experiences that can transport."

a community exhibition exploring the intersection of the body and technology

Circuits Exhibition, 2017

"The Circuits: A Community Exhibition Exploring the Intersection of the Body and Technology exhibition, of which I conceived and curated, took place from April 14th to April 22nd, 2017. The exhibition, under the theme of the body and technology, included works by artists from Connecticut College, Lyme Art Academy, The Williams School, and the broader New London Community. The intent of the exhibition was to bring these diverse communities together through the thematic concepts. These sub-themes explored technology as a tool in which images of the body can be altered, the hybridization of machine and human form, and the post-digital disenchantment with “new” media."
