The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''

I remember as a kid in the 70's my Dad purchasing the all new tech.......stereophonic.

Tomita, Jean Michel Jarre and Kraftwerk were the test pieces along with BBC sound effects.

We would sit on the floor for hours in the middle of the speakers, OOooh!.... did you hear that on the left channel etc etc.......

I dunno, kids today and thier playbox thingies, wheres the fun in shooting sh!t out of Zombies?  Grin

Tomita's work never fails to astound me. While searching for his music on Youtube, I discovered other electronic composers from about the same time, such as Roger Roger, also known as Cecil Leuter and Eric Swan. Some of his music was used for animated cartoons in France. The album art often uses late 19th century advertising images. His music runs the gamut from silly to exotic and serious.
