Paul Hembree's work as composer and computer musician explores the perceptual categories of sonic materials and the processes that guide them, navigating the space between organic and synthetic sounds in a search for uncanny or sublime hybrids.

Recent projects include his dissertation, Ouroboros (2014-15), for ensemble and audio-visual media, a La Jolla Symphony and Chorus commission, Ikarus-Azur (2013), and Light: Frozen and Refracted (2012), premiered by Ensemble Intercontemporain.

His computer music projects include numerous collaborations with Roger Reynolds, involving work alongside prominent new music performers, including Irvine Arditti, the JACK Quartet, the Callithumpian Consort, Ensemble Signal, and Mark Dresser.
