about

Classic pop songs reframed in an inventive, ethereal choral setting.

The album is a culmination of years of choral arrangements by Doust as commissioned by multiple choirs, including Khorikos, The Young New Yorkers’ Chorus, Choral Chameleon, Illumen and the Inversion Ensemble, among others.

“I wanted to produce this album to get definitive recordings of many of the songs I’ve written over the last 5 years,” says Doust. “Part of the goal behind these arrangements was to show that any genre - from country to grunge to dance to rock - could all be translated in a cohesive choral setting.”

Doust sees the album as a way for choirs across the world to embrace a new relationship with the pop and classical music worlds.

“This just left me in a puddle - Paul Doust does choral witchcraft on some popular tunes. Stunning. This is going to be on repeat for a while now.” - Adam Brett, Chanticleer

“I was taken aback. There’s a certain brilliance to Paul Doust.” - Vince Peterson, Director of Choral Chameleon

“Doust’s Reinventions are a unique and dazzling achievement. His thoughtful counterpoint and towering, aching chords honor the soul of these songs in an entirely new way.” - Alec Galambos, Director of Khorikos

“In his Reinventions Doust has achieved something truly special - a true marriage of pop and choral music in a way that is both familiar and fresh.” - Alex Canovas, Director of the Young New Yorkers’ Chorus

Doust trained as a composer at the University of Sydney and a film composer at the Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS) in Sydney, Australia before moving to New York where he began writing choral arrangements in 2011.
