Luke Daniels: Revolve & Rotate
Described by Songlines as “a future classic” and by Acoustic Magazine as “an enchanting delight”, award-winning singer and composer Luke Daniels brings his solo show to the stage.

The show uses an original 19th-century Polyphon machine as part of the performance: live, clockwork and sampled sound beautifully crafted into modern morality tales and intriguing instrumental music. Luke’s work as a member of the Cara Dillon Band and Riverdance Orchestra sets his pedigree at the very highest level and promises a night of outstanding acoustic songs and music.

The Polyphon is a disc-playing music box manufactured in Leipzig, Germany in 1880. Disc projections, called plectra, engage with a series of ratchet-like star wheels, that, when moved through 40 degrees on their axis, pluck 120 teeth on the instruments bed plate and comb. These teeth then resonate, sounding pre-determined notes. Newly manufactured 19inch diameter steel discs rotate at 1.4 rpm and perform the first new music written for Polyphon in over a century.
