Music I made for a game in development. The title basically says what it's supposed to be -- background music for a steampunk Irish pub.

I'm also working on a Steampunk-ish game. Thanks for this inspiration. Sounds amazing. :)

fantastic work i love the percussion with the celtic music! great work

F*&K YES! My name happens to be Celtic, ((It bein Kailen, meaning "Warrior")), and I do like Steampunk related things. This, I like. Make a longer version, maybe?

fucking mind blowing dude! i love this song

As a Celtic music afficionado, I quite like this little piece of music, and would like to hear an extended version, complete with a counter-melody.... Standard Irish pub fare would involve 1) tuneset - bodhran solo - tuneset, or 2) a simple Irish jig. I don't doubt you've got the instrumentation for those, so whichever way you make the extended version, I will be looking forward to that. As you can tell, my only pickle is that it is short. I do understand that it's meant as ambience, but it ultimately does depend on how big the game is etc.

I can forgive the percussions (there not being a bodhran would otherwise be a travesty!), because it is meant to be steampunk after all.

Length aside, I truly enjoyed this. One, this is something for me to beat the bodhran to, and two, I love the melody and the chords. Sounds contemporary Irish, and I wouldn't have it any other way. <3

4.5/5, favourited.

Thank you for taking the time to listen to the piece!

I'm not very familiar with traditional Celtic forms. Do you think you could possibly shoot me a short PM with the characteristics of a jig vs. a ternary tunset/solo/tuneset? I couldn't really find much info on them just searching around. Also, countermelody-wise, what would you suggest for the instrumentation? Right now I have a bagpipe drone for the accompanying harmonies, and acoustic guitar/violin for primarily melodic sections.

It's great to hear positive feedback from someone who is an expert in the field!
