Victor Borge, but the mix is clearly his own."

KPBS interviews Scott about the silent films of the La Jolla Cinema League
When cinema was theatre and radio was young...
Scott Paulson is an award-winning soundscape artist who has been heard on radio, television, and film. His performance ensemble, the Teeny-Tiny Pit Orchestra, provides live music and sounds for silent film screenings, ballet productions, radio dramas, operas, and theatrical productions. At many of his live shows, Paulson asks the audience to assist: Strike a thundersheet! Use exotic wooden birdcalls! Roll out an elegant harp glissando! Play a Theremin, if you dare! In addition to his slapstick and experimental music activities, Paulson is an orchestral oboist, and also is the University Carillonneur at UC San Diego, performing live on Geisel Library's rooftop chimes. (Yes, he takes song requests!) Scott is the Exhibits & Events Coordinator at the UC San Diego Library, for which he founded and directs various festivals: The Short Attention Span Chamber Music Series, the annual Toy Piano Festival, The Not-So-Silent Film Festival, and a Paper Theatre Festival.
