From the Library: Steampunk "Classical"

in Daily Programme

Posing the question: “what is Steampunk music?” is something one should never, never do within earshot of a bunch of self-proclaimed Steampunks.  The debate, dissent and downright silliness that ensues is positively mind numbing.  I leap into the potential fray of controversy by not only calling today’s program “Steampunk”….but “Steampunk Classical”.

The music that you will hear today, is a mix of traditional Classic pieces performed by well known Steampunk artists, music from movie soundtracks have that connections via theme or era to Steampunk, Classical Music Electronica and pieces played on some form of mechanical device. This is how I, Gabrielle Riel, define “Steampunk Classical”, and I hope that you enjoy it.

Radio Riel produces this program in conjunction with the Alexandrian Free Library Consortium of Second Life. You can listen to the program now at http://main.radioriel.org . Today’s music originates from the music library of Gabrielle Riel.

For more information on the Alexandrian Free Library, current exhibits and the work of Consortium members in general, please visit the Alexandrian Free Library website, or one of their branches in-world.
