Ayumi Paul is a Berlin based violinist and composer.
Her work combines site specific concert, composition, improvisation, performance, and installation.
The intrinsic sound of body, material, and the surroundings is essential to her conceptual approach to creating highly sensitive and often durational performances.
She trained as a classical violinist at Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin and Indiana University and gave her solo debut at the Berlin Philharmonic Hall in 2003. She continued to perform at internationally prominent concert halls while at the same time developing her own distinct approach to music.
She is today more widely known in the performative art context and has collaborated with musicians such as Audrey Chen, Ig Henneman, Aki Takase, Elliott Sharp.
