An abandoned title for this album — Under Eye Finger Pressure — could be 

a tentative instruction to the listener. Closing your eyes, then gently pressing the base of your eye-balls through your eyelids is a good, slightly painful way 

of generating accompanying visual phenomena. Direct from the lobes, un-mediated colours and shapes that ease passage into a less concrete way of meeting the world.


Neil Luck is a composer, performer and director based in London. He is interested in the pathos and interaction between 

live human performance and multimedia. His work takes a range of forms from music-theatre, to concert works, works for radio, installations, public projects 

and recordings, and often attempt to frame the act of music making as something curious, or weird, or useful, 

or spectacular in and of itself. Neil is the founder and director of the music-theatre ensemble ARCO, and a co-founder of artist cooperative squib-box.


Independently, he has also written for 

a range of soloists and ensembles in 

the UK and abroad, and presented 

work at music venues, festivals, and galleries internationally including the 

ICA, Whitechapel Gallery, MATA Festival (NYC), Tate Britain, Tate Modern, BBC Proms, Palais de Tokyo (Paris), in Vilnius and Aarhus Capital of Culture festivals,
and the Tokyo Experimental Festival.
