Cyberia 15


The Story

"By the year 2000, the inner city kid will slip on the EyePhone, don a form-fitting computer suit, and start inhabiting electronic environments either self-designed or pulled up from menus. At 9:00 a.m. she and her friend in Tokyo will meet in an electronic simulation of Malibu Beach for a flirtatious moment. At 9:30 a.m. she will meet her biology teacher in an electronic simulation of the heart for a hands-on 'you are there' tutorial trip down the circulatory system. At 10:00 a.m. she'll be walking around medieval Verona with members of her English literature seminar to act out a scene from Romeo and Juliet. At 11:00 A.M. she'll walk onto an electronic tennis court for a couple of sets with her pal in Managua. At noon, she'll take off her cyberwear and enjoy a sensual, tasty lunch with her family in their nonelectronic kitchen."

Life exists online. Between the conceptualisation and the final product that is "Cyberia 15", numerous remnants from the previous life as a fleshmeatdoll were discarded, given away, or sold -- online, of course. Now is the time to concentrate on the basic necessary physical entities and hardware necessary to complete the journey and transformation into the digital realm, leaving only the ghost of a shell behind.

But beware... much can get lost in Translation: "By the year 2000, the city has a childhood eyephone slip on the form did not match the computer's suit, Don, and e-Start of habitat or pulled from the self-designed menus. 9:00 a.m. , in Tokyo with her friends to meet the demands of the electronic invitation to SHIMYURESHONMARIBUBICHI moment. 9:30 to meet her in her biology teacher, electronic simulation of the heart in your hand, there 'tutorial travel circulation system down. 10:00 a.m. medieval Verona around GURUGURU picks up, but her English literature seminar members behave in a scene from Romeo and JURIETTOMASU. 11:00 am she walking electronic tennis courts to enter some of the settings, her friends MANAGUAMASU. noon, she had to take her cyberwear enjoy and sensual, delicious lunch to her family in the kitchen nonelectronic MASU.

The Music

Almost the fore-runner to a new world -- a new beginning -- almost the re-invention of one's carbon-based self, Cyberia 15 discovered a portal for the escape to and immersion in a brave new electronic conscience. Never before has an edition been mixed, edited, re-edited, destroyed and re-mixed only to be re-edited again a few weeks later, nearly resulting in a double-CD that is more a compilation than a mix.
