Neil Luck is a British composer, performer, and director based in London.
He is interested in live performance, fallible bodies, and the esoteric. His work often attempts to frame the act of music making as something curious, or weird, or useful, or spectacular in and of itself.
He is the founder and director of the ensemble ARCO – a group which focuses on experimental approaches to music-theatre, and along with Federico Reuben and Adam de la Cour co-founder of squib-box; a netlabel and cooperative dedicated to the production and dissemination of radical and avant-garde music.
His work has been performed to acclaim by ARCO, himself and many other experimental music and performance groups nationally and internationally, at art spaces, galleries, concerts halls, theatres and in the streets.
This support will enable to me to undertake a residency at EMS in Stockholm, to work for the first time with analogue and modular synthesis in a studio environment.
