Steampunk
David Anderson's Quintet uses the same instruments as Prokofiev's Oboe Quintet while combining elements of funk, jazz, and a little Shostakovich. Carl Nielsen's short Serenata in Vano (1914) takes a charming and humorous look at unrequited chivalry. David Bruce completed Steampunk 2010 after a friend showed him several handmade instruments inspired by the Steampunk movement. An octet of winds, brass, and strings takes listeners through an alternate history of sound, color, rhythm, and melody.
