"This is the sophomore release by Bettis under the T.A.T.A. moniker which features two collaboration tracks with Mick Barr and a track dedicated to Daniel Higgs. This release is a further investigation into the realms of extreme frequencies and mind bending acrobatics that will leave you wondering if you are living in the future or the past but ultimately awaken you to the here and now. This is the last CD that Bettis used the T.A.T.A. moniker before laying it to rest to perform under his earth name.
Trance And The Arcade started off as the solo moniker for Chuck Bettis's exploration into electronic avant garde to later blossom with the inclusion of Jorge Castro on visuals and frequent collaborations with dance troupe known as Domestic Tar Petal
Survival In Infinity was the second release, this time with MickBarr on 2 tracks"-Mass Particles
