From the Library: Steampunk Exploration

in Daily Programme

by Otenth Paderborn on Wednesday, 29 October, 2008

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.

You can listen now at — the ideal URL for you to use in your home parcel media address in-world — or simply visit any Caledon Library branch in-world and press Play on your embedded music player.

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