Revolve & Rotate – The Polyphon Chronicles

Luke Daniels

Daniels is a BBC award winning folk musician and singer who has performed with Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, Cara Dillon and De Dannan. Currently folk musician in residence of the National Museum of Rural Life, a tutor on the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s traditional music course and a soloist on The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit soundtracks. His latest album features new original songs and instrumental music composed for Polyphon machine. Having written pieces for an original Victorian machine, for which many popular folk tunes were arranged in the late 19th century, he combines digital audio with the machine’s acoustic clockwork mechanism and live performance creating music spanning the earliest form of recorded music with the very latest technology.
