From the Library: Steampunk “Classical”

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.
