Neil is a writer, DJ and audio-visual artist. He studied a BA in English Lit. and Creative Writing at UEA, Norwich, and a MA in Sound Art at UAL: LCC, London. [He also has a PGCE in post compulsory education from UEL.] He has published a YA novella, two pamphlets of poetry, two collections of short stories, and written a mem-r. He has been known to write lyrics, film and music journalism, and film scripts.
Developing on his fine art and design practice, he now explores audio-visual mediums. Still preoccupied with language in all forms, he explores the relationship between words and their sonification, and text as semantic signifier and aesthetic image. Inspired by collage, experimental film, expanded cinema and VJing, his work is a dialogue between the elements of sound, [moving] image and textual language.
Previously immersed in club culture, thematically he is engaged by issues of substance, the psychoogy of perception, altered states, spiritual transcendence, meditative bodily expression, and furthering communication. He is also interested in the therapeutic aspects of audio-visual art and its use as medium for exploring neurodiversity.
A DJ, he has produced a dance music album and sonisfied a collection of poetry. He has also presented radio, modelled and acted. He is increasingly concerned with environmental and human rights issues.
