Paul Wilkinson started working on video game music in the early 90's at Radical Entertainment. Most of the games he wrote music for were poor quality, mainly because they were movie licenses. Paul currently works at PlayFirst as a Senior Software Engineer and is an accomplished C++ programmer. Wilkinson is also fluent in Swedish.

Music Composition

NES

Paul started off writing music for The Terminator in assembly. Later, he created a MIDI conversion tool which would convert his MIDI files to the NES. He used Cakewalk to create his MIDI files. Ever since Rocky & Bullwinkle, he used this method.

GB

Like his NES music, Paul wrote MIDI files on Cakewalk and converted them to the Game Boy using his own conversion tool called readmidi.
