Research into steampunk music resulted in use of musical material from two artists:
Snippets of material were often edited and often looped as underscoring.

These were all edited from Paul Shapera's Dolls of New Albion Instrumentals for underscoring some of the darker sections and moments of the show.

Whenever possible we liked to have an actor create the foley sound live onstage (see video #2 above)
Sounds created with live foley included:
