about

This song is a soundtrack piece to my novella of the same title, published in Steampunk Tales #2 and #3. I've read quite a bit about the struggle of the Native American people and wanted to create something that combined my interest in the subject as well as my fondness for steampunk.

Several handmade Native American instruments are featured on the track, all of which were purchased during a visit to Oklahoma. The lead melody is played with a pentatonic flute, and percussion consists of a buckskin drum and boneshaker, along with a storebought frame drum. The industrial percussion consists of samples I created using various metal objects.

lyrics

Instrumental | Tradition will never bow to technology...
