Ms. Meka Nism's
Mystical Steam Time Machine
*A time-traveling group of adventurers
who collect stories and songs
to bring to an oppressive, silent future.*
The concept unfolds with a Victorian-era mystic—Ms. Meka Nism—who inadvertently travels through time during one of her spiritual trances. As she further develops this ability, she visits DaVinci and other important historic figures, marveling at the wonders of the years … until she gets a look at what lies ahead. Centuries in the future, she finds a sad world, void of any music or storytelling, and kept in silence by an oppressive authority known as The Absolute. Ms. Meka Nism enlists the aid of a cyborg girl from that far-flung era, and together they travel through the the ages, seeking out others—explorers and pirates, scientists and magicians—who join their quest to find the greatest music and stories that can heal the future!
Mystical Steam Time Machine is set up as a Baroque Rock band that is part orchestra and part rock band, with instruments that include accordion, violin, cello, bass, guitar, theremin, percussion, and vocal harmonies. It is a show that will engage audiences of all ages, immersing them in the journey, and connecting them to their own adventurous spirit. Comprised predominately of original creations—songs and tales inspired by history—it also contains some familiar classics that range from sea shanties to new wave hits to fandom-favorites which have been reimagined with a Neo-Victorian perspective.
