steampunk music

Thomas Truax is touring and I am hoping to catch him and his bizarre instruments when they are in Scotland. Hornicator seen here. I am ambivalent about the cannibalising of a horn from a windup as I really think all the bits should remain as a windup, but this is still a lovely electrosteam mashup. Looking forward to seeing it live.

I couldnt get down to London for the White Night Halloween party but hear it was great. Having to make do with pix at flickr etc.
We are working on a small zeppelin made from dead umbrellas. Having done the sums we reckon it is big enough to carry its own weight and a small electric motor plus batteries, but we havent figured out how to keep the helium in it or indeed how to even get helium without buying a hideous kiddy balloon.
