Paul Frick was born in Berlin. He took composition classes since the age of twelve with Il-Ryun Chung. From 2000 to 2008 he studied composition with Friedrich Goldmann at Universität der Künste Berlin. Since 2008 the group Brandt Brauer Frick with Daniel Brandt and Jan Brauer became the center of Fricks work, leading to the 10-piece Brandt Brauer Frick Ensemble as from 2010, in which he plays the piano and notates the scores. Both formations performed in over fifty countries since then, including stages as Lincoln Center New York, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Glastonbury Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival and Centre Pompidou Paris.
