Subliminal Aquatica – known as Sub-A – is a form of underwater musical entertainment that uses ultrasonic frequencies and subliminal encoding. It’s a bit of a game to figure out what the lyrics are and to pop up to the surface to start singing them. Sub-A is enhanced by a drug of the same name that heightens hearing and leaves you more susceptible to suggestion. Since forms of entertainment are regulated by the Over-College of Arts, Sub-A performers are smuggled in from off-world to perform in underground venues. Sometimes these gatherings take place in Mukhadish lands, often with kickbacks to the Mukhadish tribes to help setup and work security. The Over-College of Arts disapproves of this new entertainment as unworthy of the minds of the students of Ibis.
