NEW ALBUM VINTAGE TOMORROWS AVAILABLE 2017 MARCH 17
Vintage Tomorrows is Matthew Mercer’s first feature-length scoring project. While its sounds were crafted and created to complement the subject matter of the documentary film — the steampunk movement, its origins, its makers, and its enthusiasts and critics alike — this is music that also stands on its own as a lush, thematic, focused body of work.
Much like the often maligned gears and goggles of steampunk’s community, this is music that’s been created, taken apart, reconstructed, and tinkered with again. And, like the wares of its makers, these are living and breathing pieces that exist here as a document of process, iterations of sketching, honing, and refinement that exist within the creative continuum rather than merely a means to an end.
