The Pan-Galactic All
discovery of the holographic data cube in a small
coffeeshop on a side street in Amsterdam left mr_melvis
speechless. He had read about these little buggers
before, but had never seen one up close. No one was
sure how they had appeared here in the 22nd Century
(considering that they had been traced forward to
the year 3035). All mr_melvis knew was that it contained
the music of machines, specifically space craft and
their equipment, which would create spontaneous jam
sessions for entertainment during long, deep space
voyages, while their crews slept in suspended animation.
But how to access the sounds? This would take some
expertise he didn't posess, but mr_melvis knew right
where to find it...
Back in Neuvo York, mr_melvis hurried up 15th street
towards the beckoning flashing neon of The Korova
Milk Bar. He was going to meet the one man he knew
would be able to find the way to unlock the secrets
of the space music container. Entering the bar, he
headed towards the stage and saw his old friend Tabuzak,
the house DJ at the Korova. Wordlessly handing him
the data cube, he watched as Tabuzak's eyes gleamed
almost as brightly as the container he held in his
hands. Tabuzak immediately took the cube and began
to spin it on it's corner on the edge of the stage.
As it spun, Tabuzak expertly took out a sonic hook
knife and began to slice at the unit, making precise,
slashing movements. Pieces of the container's cover
flew around him as Tabuzak continued to carve away
at the cube. This was sonic surgery at it's finest.
All at once, with a lunging motion, Tabuzak split
open the cube and the future sounds of machine music
spilled out in a rushing wave of total sensory overload,
filling the bar with incredible astral sounds and
holding everyone in the area in total sonic awe.
mr_melvis and Tabuzak both looked at each other with
huge grins and at the same time proclaimed: "Hey!!!
We can do something with this"!
