Expanding into more popular genres, Avgerinos toured as a bassist with Charles Aznavour, Liza Minelli, and the jazz legend Buddy Rich. Seeking to further his original composition and develop his childhood passion for electronic music, Paul built Studio Unicorn, a comprehensive digital/analog recording studio, in 1984. Twenty One solo CDs in the New Age genre followed, including Muse of the Round Sky on the Hearts of Space label. Muse was nominated for a Grammy and is played on more than 2,000 radio stations around the world. Paul’s music is currently being played on Sirius & XM Satellite radio as well as Music Choice SoundScapes . Avgerinos always makes time for scoring and has worked on over One Hundred film, TV, and cable projects for HBO, PBS, and Lifetime, among others. Paul’s work on Peter Kater’s Red Moon earned A 2004 Grammy Nomination. Currently, he lives and works in Redding, Connecticut, where the deer pass by his studio windows and the hawks and eagles give inspiration from above.
