Ed Saperia & Patrick Gleeson of Clockwork Quartet

Dirty secrets of The Magician and The Conductor

While exploring one of London's less reputable neighborhoods, I bumped into a Magician and a Conductor who wished to tell me their story.


The Clockwork Quartet (in character) are a band of traveling musicians who entertain the passengers aboard a train that travels back and forth between London and Dover. It is the individual stories of passengers they meet that the Quartet brings to life in song form.


The band features an unusual selection of instruments: Violin & Stroh Violin, Cello, 6 String Banjo & Guitar, Bass Banjo, 5 String Banjo & Piccolo Banjo, Accordion, Oboe & Musical Saw, and two percussionists who use a double kit composed of scrap metal, metronomes, clocks and other found objects. In addition, almost everyone in the band sings at one point or another.


I walked away 50 quid light and I think my pocket watch is missing, but it was worth it to hear what they had to say.
