Come help us birth into the world our painstakingly created new art-documentary film about the postwar British origins of the psychedelic liquid light show.

Set as early as 1963, not only does the film elaborate the surprisingly domestic origins of the immersive multimedia environments and concert light shows we know of today but it glimpses the early days of a group of remarkable artists, the Boyle Family. By choosing an open, shared practice, rejecting existing hierarchical structures of the art world and finding the others in the burgeoning underground scene they became arguably the first live-work and DIY multidisciplinary artists in the UK. They continue to exhibit globally, being widely considered the living embodiment of the iconoclastic postwar British art scene.

Composer Jim Edgar Morgan will perform a live expanded and improvisatory iteration of music from the film using tape delay and analogue synthesis.
Adopting methods pioneered by Joan Hills and Mark Boyle, Bardo Light Show will collaborate with friends. Audiovisual artist Stuart Heaney joins them on microscope, revealing in the liquid miasma, some hitherto invisible beings, magnified large and emerging from out of the void…

Avlsluta (Sonic Garden, Immersive Electronics) – presents a specially created and curated performative DJ set exploring the key sounds and ideas that influenced the film’s soundtrack, adopting the late Gustav Metzger’s concept of auto-destructive art (Gustav was interviewed in the film), transforming source material into disrupted forms, building into a rhythmic and ecstatic conclusion to the proceedings.

Boyle Family

Boyle Family is a group of London-based collaborative artists, founded by Joan Hills and Mark Boyle. Embracing a multidisciplinary approach to artmaking before the term was coined, Mark and Joan’s experiments with assemblages and fascination with material processes led them to the chance innovation of the liquid lightshow, an aspect of their multifarious practice that also includes casts of landscape. Although deeply involved since childhood, participating in home studio experiments and more, Sebastian (b.1962) and Georgia Boyle (b.1963) officially adopted the Boyle Family moniker with their parents in 1985. Although Mark passed away in 2005, they continue to exhibit globally.

Bardo Light Show

Inspired by the light show projections of the 1960s, liquids and chemicals are at the heart of the Bardo Light Show… mixed, boiled and literally obliterated on the screen and in the minds of the viewers. The process is “hands on” and driven by a healthy trust in chaos. The output has organic and primordial aesthetics, which integrate with, enhance and reference the psychedelic experience. Having worked with artists as diverse as Bishi, Amorphous Androgynous, July and DJ Food, BLS most recently contributed visual effects to the film At Home with the Boyle Family.

Jim Edgar Morgan

Jim Edgar Morgan is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. He composed the music for At Home with the Boyle Family, taking as inspiration Soft Machine’s experimental minimalist score for the Boyle Family’s 1969 film Beyond Image. Utilising vintage synths & electric pianos, and a Terry Riley/Pauline Oliveros-inspired tape delay system built from multiple reel-to-reel tape recorders, Jim explores the possibilities of improvisation using this set-up.

Avsluta (AKA artist Lucie Štěpánková) dedicates her creative practice to object-oriented improvisation, live performance, curation and DJing. Inquiry about our being in, experiencing and interacting with the world through the lens of deep ecology and new materialism are at the core of her performative works. She co-creates with objects and natural materials, field recordings, electronics and digital processing to embody speculative narratives via sound-making. The general aim is to encourage audiences to engage in listening as an active-creative practice, reconnect with and manifest emotions, and forge a sense of interspecies solidarity and environmental responsibility.
