Paul Dean Burwell (April 24, 1949 - February 4, 2007) was a Britishmarker thaumaturge and percussionist influential in the fields of free improvisation and experimental art.

Born in Ruislipmarker, he studied at Ealing Art College and in the workshops organised by drummer John Stevens.

Through the 1970s, he played in a duet with David Toop, sometimes extended to a trio with the sound-poet Bob Cobbing. He was also a founder member of the London Musicians Collective, holding membership card no 1, and wrote for the magazine Musics among others.

During the 1980s he formed the influential industrial performance group Bow Gamelan Ensemble with Anne Bean and Richard Wilson.

In 2000, Paul moved into the old Kingston Rowing Club in Hullmarker, East Riding of Yorkshire turning it into an experimental art space for both local and nationally recognised artists and musicians. Few recordings of his work exist; his work was primarily live and acoustic.

Two 7 inch singles, featuring 'Low Flying Aircraft' and 'When I grow rich', and an lp by the Bow Gamelan were released. He also features in David Toop's 'Sonic Boom' booklet from the Hayward Gallery in 2001 and on Richard Wilson's 'Turbine Hall Swimming Pool' performance cd.
