Pawel Filip Osmolski (born May 12, 1983) is an English composer and child prodigy. He started composing on the piano at the age of 7, and was also writing music on the Commodore Amiga computer using MOD Tracker software. During his teens, he became fascinated with learning the Acoustic/Electric guitar, Bass guitar and Drums, which led him to progress from old school Trackers onto MIDI and Audio workstations such as Avid Pro Tools and Steinberg Cubase.
His musical family meant that he grew up listening to, and playing, all kinds of music, developing strong song-writing individualism and instrumental flexibility. He is an improviser at heart, being able to create melodies and sounds without the need of any significant influence or stimulus.
Pawel was taught privately by a professor of music whilst he attended secondary school, but eventually took his skills further by studying for an Advanced Diploma at The Power House Guitar Institute & Basstech, then for a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Technology and a Master's degree in Audio Technology. He’s the kind of guy that will say "Bass-boost is only for parties" and "Can I get that in 24-bit please?"
He gained recognition in the media from his well-received remixes of Radiohead’s unreleased material, and was listed in the Q Magazine, MTV News, and had an exclusive article printed in the NME. Pawel is also known for his contributions to the Remix64 community and Chiptune scene, which were done out of his love for 8-bit music and the Commodore 64.
Currently, he is the lead singer-songwriter and producer for the London based unsigned indie band CrunchAlias, whilst at the same time recording solo material, collaborating online with other musicians, and actively working on film and video game projects through his audio agency Crown & Craft. Pawel goes by the names deVilhoOD and Captain Star Paw, as pseudonyms for releasing his own solo material.
Pawel has always had an avid enthusiasm to explore all approaches to sound and music. He expresses a wide sonic palette, hoping that it will influence and bring inspiration to others.
