About Pauline Morgan

Pauline started her musical life as a cellist, studying performance, harmony and theory at Napier University in Edinburgh (1991-1993). Later – via an undergraduate degree in English Literature from Stirling University and then a PhD in English Literature and Psychoanalysis from Sussex University (2000-2004) – she made her way back to the world of sound and gained a Diploma in Sound Engineering and Music Production from Alchemea College in London (now absorbed into the Manchester School of Sound Recording) in 2010. 

In the context of audio engineering Pauline gained considerable insight through her work with such esteemed engineers as Hayden Bendall and Marcel van Limbeek before taking on the role of sound engineer and music producer for singer-songwriter David Ogilvy at his studio in Maida Vale. She also worked with various classical musicians, recording and producing CDs under the label Garat Records.  

More recently Pauline has had the pleasure of working closely with directors and actors in the embryonic stages of new writing for theatre. She has produced both sound design and original composition for shows at Oran Mor, the Tron and the Citizens’ Theatre in Glasgow, the Lemon Tree in Aberdeen, the Traverse in Edinburgh and The King’s Head Theatre and The Vaults in London.
