Daylight music is a dazzling idea presented by the Union Chapel to open up their amazing gothic venue to a shiny new daytime crowd and provide a rather exciting platform for artists. Produced by Arctic Circle and supported by The 405.
Playing with songs Geographically complicated. A full 11-a-side team in a quartet. Hugh Nankivell (midfield) mantels all keys. Rahsaan Chris Dowding (striker) on mutually inclusive trumpet and flugel horn. Pat Allison (left back) on borrowed guitar, bass, clarinet and occasional glockenspiel. Ben McCabe (central defence) on drums with french horn finish.
They play live with film, work with poets (Jackie Kay, Ian McMillan, Peter Oswald), write and arrange songs by email, improvise and collaborate internationally. "Where there is no light"
Laura J Martin
Laura J Martin hails from the suburbs of Liverpool with influences that ricochet between Serge Gainsbourg, Wu Tang Clan, David Bowie and Herbie Mann. Armed with a flute ready for wrangling, mandolin and a loop station, she sings over her loops and beats, songs inspired by subject matter as disparate as Japanese folklore to real life sentiments and characters.
Lux Harmonium is the musical moniker of Devon's Luke Jones. Initially a self-taught musician, he spent his formative years engrossed in antiquated records. Here he learnt the basis of his fingerpicking techniques, the more traditional side of his work. However the involvement of some unusual ideas about songwriting, creates a curious and timeless quality that is difficult to define.
An enduring insomniac, Luke's lyrics mainly take inspiration from the ethereal moments between this world and the other where he tends to spend most of his time.
