Paul Copeland is an award-winning multi-genre composer. His compositional styles range from neo-classical, jazz, ragtime, and musical theatre to electronic, avant-garde, post-avant-garde, and experimental music.

He studied composition with Felix Werder, his only composition teacher.

Paul is a recipient of a composition grant from the Australia Council of the Arts Music Board. Some of his most notable compositions include his String Quartet 1, a graphics-based aleatoric score premiered by members of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and Subterranean Rivers (for horn, oboe, trumpet, percussion and two synthesisers). Both have been broadcast over National Radio by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

The Australian Percussion Ensemble, (led by John Seal) premiered Paul’s Continuum for Six at the National Gallery of Victoria. The internationally recognised contemporary music ensemble Australia Felix, once led by Paul’s teacher, Felix Werder, has taken Paul’s music overseas to Germany and Italy. Paul’s musical theatre credits include a performance of Multitududinalpolychromatic Transformations by members of the Australian Ballet School, which included a montage of his electronic music and instrumental music.
