Prince of Gosplan sets the opening of Russian author Victor Pelevin's short story of the same name. It describes in detail a video game (mid-1980s, DOS) that the main character, Petya, explores. There are two movements, and the second movement is made of five sections corresponding to the levels achieved in the game. Narration by Marina Lomazov. The narration was recorded by Dave Dusman. The music was mixed in Digital Performer and employs sounds created with Csound, Peak, Loris, and uses custom surround sound software based on Doug Scott's CMIX "move/place/space" routines.
