It refers to creativity, deconstructs the idea of origin, questions media as a vehicle for factuality, and asks the interesting question of whether genius has to be compulsorily derivative to be really effetcive; privileging altered repetition in Deleuzian and Guattarian terms, over the original.
Yashas Shetty is creative in the Art Science field in the same way those two thinkers are/were and Fitzgerald was too, perhaps
Yashas’s ability to take from anthropology and mythemes and technology and his love of and sensitivity to music in its different forms – and the media’s ability to deceive playfully and use it against itself – is thought-provoking and deserves a much greater study in detail. The futuristically mixed product here of the past and the more recent past which works as a banaustic music-scape that he re-creates for us then as a listening space in cybertime and cyberspace is deliciously pranksterish and a fascinating experiment that opens one’s mind to many different pathways in it, to say the least!!!

Read this note on the Jhonds before that.
