The most recent collection of steampunk macabre music from Valentine Wolfe is nearing completion!
The time draws near when we at Valentine Wolfe will unveil our latest
steampunk macabre audio creations…and we humbly ask your assistance!
As the days of writing, recording, and other sonic necromancy draw to

Packaging and artwork, in which we’ll pair our music with the visual

And what of the music? Musick Most Dark contains our favorite macabre
delights that you’ve no doubt heard in performance: "You’re Not An
Angel," "A Reliquary of Thorns," and of course, "The Ladies Guide to
Graverobbing for Fun and Profit, or Disarticulation."
And if that's not enough for you, we've become quite fond of writing scores and soundtracks. If you want more than Musick Most Dark, we'll be making our current scoring project, Twelfth Night, available as part of the reward packages.
If you’re dying to hear some other work from the collection, the above video is for our brooding and ominous paean to the fires of passion:
"A Thousand Little Deaths!"
