Dublin in Automata

Hey folks,

One of my piano pieces, The Laughing Master has been used in collaboration with a rather extraordinary and unusual piece of artwork by Irish automata maker John Dunn. The piece is a mechanical automated sculpture of Dublin City full of castles, buskers, seagulls, vikings and all things Dublin. It’s currently on display in the Little Museum of Dublin and incorporates a live recording from one of my outdoor performances on Grafton Street (complete with seagulls!) Have a look at the video below for a very special view of Dublin City.

The piece has been entered in the ‘Uniquely DublinCompetition but we need your votes!

If you have a moment, John and I would be so grateful if you could visit uniquelydublin.ie and give us a vote by selecting: “Visual Art – Uniquely Dublin – John Dunn” on the list at the bottom of the page.

My heart goes out to all in Boston today, a city that has always welcomed me so lovingly.

    Dear Luke, thanks for the sentiment re. Boston. When the blasts occurred all I could think about were the troubles in Northern Ireland. Such insanity.

    Good luck with the voting. I’ll register my vote now.
