is it steampunk?

late last night Kevin MacLeod, a composer who i really really dig, said an outrageous thing: “I’m doing a pile of compositions for free this week!”

I asked for a steampunk anthem, as did someone else. Here’s what he came up with.

I have no idea how he does this (having no musical inclinations of my own), but it’s always amazing.

    ((I really like it. And yes, it fits the town epically. ^^ I was a music major for a year. And I’ve been a flautist since I was in the 5th grade. XD))

    I love it!  It fits so well, and it is inspirational.  Not “Standing under the flag looking heroic” but “I must go to the workshop and create something new to unleash on the populace” inspirational.


    (( I want to see that HBO series! ))

    Listening to the music box theme gets me all sparky inside!!  *Grabs a quill and a sheet of rice paper, brings the sake bottle closer and starts designing like crazy*
