Neil Luck

United Kingdom/Composer, Artist
Neil Luck is a composer and artist based in the UK. His work often explores the pathos and interaction between live human performance and multimedia, and attempts to frame the act of music making as something curious, or weird, or useful, or spectacular in and of itself. Neil’s work takes a range of forms from music-theater, to concert works, radio, public projects and recordings. Neil is the founder and director of the music-theater ensemble ARCO: an experimental music-theater company, based in London, making new work for diverse contexts and audiences.
Neil performs with artist Jennifer Walshe in the duo WACK. Independently, he has also worked with and written for people and ensembles in the UK and abroad, and presented work at music venues, festivals, and galleries internationally, including BBC Proms (London), Tate Modern (London), Venice Biennale, Tokyo Experimental Music Festival, Aarhus European Capital of Culture, MATA (New York), and the Palais de Tokyo (Paris).

An experimental project on human "senses" by London-based composer and artist Neil Luck. Activities developed as approaches such as fieldwork, group listening, and walking in nature away from urban areas, will be recorded in the form of sound, photographs, text, and illustrations, and will culminate in a participatory performance walk.
