About Neil Boynton

BiographyNeil Boynton is an artist and academic researcher in the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Lancaster University. His research is focused on video and music composition, with particular emphases on landscape, environment and self-identity, and the relation between sound and images. He writes both about his own practice and the works and teachings of the Austrian composer Anton Webern. He has exhibited with galleries and museums both overseas and in the UK; the theatre works with his soundtracks have toured extensively in the UK and Europe—Kellerman was described by The Observer’s critic as ‘near as dammit a total work of art’.

The Sonification of Morecambe Bay is a video about observation; about how, using time-lapse photography, durational events in the environment can be brought within the limits of our perception. Weather data captured concurrently with the images control elements of the soundtrack. An altered and heightened engagement with time and landscape.
