Pimmon is the alias for electronic composer Paul Gough. In the last decade, Pimmon has forged an international reputation for creating dense, challenging and engaging electronic music. His most recent release, Smudge Another Yesterday (2009) was Pimmon’s first full length release in five years and was mastered by renown Italian composer Giuseppe Ielasi. Pimmon has collaborated with other celebrated artists of his field – including Fennesz, Oren Ambarchi and Keith Rowe – and has recorded for various labels around the world including Tigerbeat6 and Fat Cat.
Music has taken Pimmon around the world: in 2002 he travelled to the US to play as part of a showcase of new Australian music at the San Francisco Museum of Contemporary Art. This was followed by a European tour, where he played concerts in the Netherlands, Brussels, Paris, Cologne, Bremen, Berlin, Vienna and a session for Dutch national broadcaster, VPRO, who released the recording later that year.
Paul currently presents ‘The Quiet Space‘ on ABC Radio National, a programme incorporating 20th century composition, blissful pop and ethereal drones.
Pimmon is featured on ‘New Weird Australia Volume One‘.
