These features as a way for the Ministry to highlight artists, musicians, writers, and makers of all variety. With so many talented individuals to choose from, we know it is a challenge to feature every clever creative worthy of note, but perhaps we might endeavour to introduce to you a new name in our community of steam and cog, or perhaps remind you of one artisan’s successful efforts to bring the past that never was to the here and now.
In this week’s Æther Feature brought to you by Jeff Mach.
Jeff Mach runs the world’s largest Steampunk event, The Steampunk World’s Fair, which has about 8,000 attendees annually, but the event for which he is most known was something called the Wicked Winter Renaissance Faire, a genre-bending Faire which changed some of how fandom felt about what a festival, or a Renfaire, could do.
Jeff has been on the cutting edge of what steampunk events can do, and this Kickstarter is no different. No there are many Steampunk Kickstarters out there, but we thought this one might be of interest; it’s one of very few Steampunk rock operas, and it’s by Jeff, one of the creators of the Steampunk rock opera genre.
