Clash in the Clouds DLC Voxophones– “The Constrancy of Music.”

When I finally brought my brother through, he seemed to lack the capacity to square his own reality with this one. I suspected such a thing would happen, yet had no means to accommodate his distress. His behavior was that of the feebleminded. He hemorrhaged nearly continuously from his nose. Naturally, I was able to transfuse him from my own veins and thus avoid catastrophe. In the end, it was music that proved therapeutic and grounded his thoughts. A middle C vibrates at 262 Hz, no matter what the universe. - October 10th, 1893, Clash in the Clouds DLC.

And that’s all the DLC’s voxophones! All others, and a few from the main game, can be listened to here.

“My brother has presented me with an ultimatum: if we do not send the girl back from where we brought her, he and I must part. Where he sees an empty page, I see King Lear. But he is my brother, so I shall play my part, knowing it shall all end in tears." - Comstock House Rooftop

(Apparently I do have audio diaries saved to this computer, so have another and my apologies once more!)

“A City, Suspended”

Ihad trapped the atom in the mid-air. Colleagues called my Lutece Field quantum levitation, but in fact, it was nothing of the sort. Magicians levitate– my atom simply failed to fall. If an atom could be suspended indefinitely, well– why not an apple? If an apple, why not a city?” - August 10th, 1890 Downtown Emporia

[I realized I used to have this on here and deleted it when I revamped my account. So here it is again. The idea was to take the song and have it sound as though it were being played off a record player in Rapture. Hopefully I succeeded. If you want the song, send an ask.]

When I was a girl, I dreamt of standing in a room looking at a girl who was and was not myself, who stood looking at another girl, who also was and was not myself. My mother took this for a nightmare. I saw it as the beginning of a career in physics. - Soldier’s Field (Founder’s Bookstore).

In lieu/apology for posts being interrupted by uncooperative computers and technicalities, here’s a one of my favorite audio diaries from the game. (It was really hard to pick one, might upload another, maybe~)

“I could have been the toast of Broadway, the talk of Hollywood. But, instead, I followed you to this soggy bucket. When you needed my star light, I illuminated you. But now I rot, waiting for an audience that doesn’t… ever… come…

I’m writing something for you, Andrew Ryan… it’s a requiem.”

My husband is such a perfect idiot. Throws away all his spending money on Gene Tonics to affect a look of physical fitness… so he’ll have an excuse to sit on his rear all day listening to radio serials! “Steven,” I tell him, “if you want to be fit, come swim laps with me, the old-fashioned way. It’s your mind that’s atrophying.” Maybe I’ll start sneaking some Brain Boost into his daily regimen…
