In order to round out the featured excerpts from The Steampunk Opera, we’re posting a selection from the 2nd Act, mostly featuring Edgar with some Narrator bits in spots. As usual, the vocals are all demo, but since they’re written for a male voice (except for the Narrator, and since i sing both parts, you just have to figure out which is which) and i’m a male, they sound a good bit better than most of the other vocal tracks.
This track is definitely a bit more… theatrical than the other featured pieces. But it does tell a more or less self sufficient story. If you need to know any more: Edgar’s beloved fiancee, Fay, has dumped him. While moping about the house he finds his dead mother’s long discarded notes on raising the dead. There you go.
