RICHARD SKELTON is a musician and an artist from Lancashire, northern England. Over the past decade he has produced a diverse and acclaimed body of work, including films, exhibitions, pamphlets, books, and albums of music that have been compared to both Arvo Pärt and Brian Eno. All his work is informed by landscape, evolving from sustained immersion in specific environments and wide-ranging research incorporating toponymy and language, ecology and geology, folklore and myth. His books include Landings (2009), a personal study of the West Pennine Moors, Moor Glisk (2012), a poetic exploration of the effects of the Industrial Revolution on rural Lancashire, and Limnology (2012), a long typographical essay on the mythology of rivers, including a glossary of over 1,000 ‘water-words’.
