Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

In 1957, there was a digital prison cell 300 feet below the Eiffel Tower unknown to the bustling city of Paris.  Within the cell were characters and figures from the past and future, all eternally confined in this horrid holographic hideaway.  The jailguard was Teenage Bad Girl.  She installed vocoders in each of the prisoner's throats,  explosive drum machine buttons in their ears, and MIDI Korg keys from the year 3038 all over their bodies.  She then pressed record, as the one room cell full of people doubled as a studio, and recorded the sounds and yelpings of the people as she tortured them.  She recorded for 10 days - nonstop, neverending excruciation.  

For the next 50 years, she labored in the cell organizing the digital chaos into music - sexy synth lines exploding with beats reminiscent of the tensions of the Cold War spiced with a twinge of horror by the mechanized, vocodered yaps and yips of the detainees.  She ascended and released it to the world.
