From the Library: Steampunk Exploration

What exact­ly is Steam­punk music? What a good ques­tion!

Per­former self-iden­ti­fi­ca­tion? Minor key and moody vocals? Retro-futur­ism? Appro­pri­a­tion of his­toric styles? Sub­ject mat­ter? Fan appre­ci­a­tion? DJ whim? Unusu­al instru­men­ta­tion? Eccen­tric­i­ty? All of the above? Oth­er?

Yes? No? Have a lis­ten today and cre­ate your own def­i­n­i­tion.

Oh! And we’ll have a bit of sea­son­al music thrown in for good mea­sure.

From the Library is pro­duced by Radio Riel in con­junc­tion with the Cale­don Library in Sec­ond Life. Today’s pro­gram was pro­duced by Otenth Pader­born.

For more infor­ma­tion on the Cale­don Library, cur­rent exhibits and the work of Sec­ond Life ref­er­ence libraries in gen­er­al, please vis­it the Cale­don Library Web site, or one of their loca­tions in-world.

    And I should have added: Goth musi­cians look­ing for a niche?
