Polygraph Lounge is an underground music/comedy duo from New York City, founded by multi-instrumentalists Rob Schwimmer (piano, theramin stylophone, claviola) and Mark Stewart (daxophone, trombadoo, chaladoo), a gifted guitarist who plays with the great Paul Simon.
Hans Reichel's daxophone is a block of wood that changes the vibration frequency of a wooden blade inside another block with contact microphones.
In his own work (as a soloist and in improvisation ensembles), he plays prepared/modified percussion, analog synthesizer, ebow and prepared piano, theremin, and bowed objects (polystyrene, customized/broken cymbals, faux daxophone, metal).
I have one of his daxophone albums from the early 90s.
