New Deriva_K [Non] Release!
Audiologist K over at the Deriva_K Laboratory sent me a box of 3.5 inch floppy disks in the mail today. On each disk was one section of the new Deriva_K remix 'What's It Like...[Chopped & Screwed]' that needed painstaking assembly*. When I was finally finished and was actually able to hear the song I was blown away.
I have always loved the original version of the Barnes & Barnes classic, but somehow the Chopped & Screwed treatment somehow releases the menace that has always been just below the surface.
Unfortunately I cannot offer this latest song for your listening pleasure [hence the [Non] in front of 'release' above] if I want to continue my arrangement with Audiologist K.
Audiologist K has stated that the need to actually hear the song is unnecessary as long as my reader's know that the piece exists.
I hope he/she is correct.
*I won't bore you with the details but suffice it to say that Audiologist_K doesn't use any software written after 1998 so I had to use a plethora of old programs that I had saved just in case of such emergency.

What People Are Saying About the Plaza of the Mind
...[Plaza of the Mind] impressed me in its magnificent weirdness...this sorta je ne sais quoi that you find in interesting art... ...I mean that purely as a compliment!
Plaza of the Mind is a clinamen away from the holeopathic replay by the Android Meme of the old perceptual agon of electrically-programmed youth confronting the Gutenbergian Establishment. Irresistible Force meets Immovable Object.
