NEW ERA FOR ROCK VIDEO BEGINS MARCH 14: "TRIGGER GIRL" NATIONAL DEBUT WILL ZAP VIEWERS

 NEW ERA FOR ROCK VIDEO BEGINS MARCH 14:
 "TRIGGER GIRL" NATIONAL DEBUT WILL ZAP VIEWERS
 LOS ANGELES, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock fans, watching Channel America's "Noise Bazzar" music video show on March 14 at midnight, will be in for a treat. If they turn out their lights, sit close to their TVs and stare at the screen, they'll get a short "buzz" or high from the new video, "Trigger Girl" by underground rocker, Marshall Barnes. By ordering a copy of "Seeing The Breykiot," the 10 song video album "Trigger Girl" is from, they'll be able to get a longer high by watching it with the enclosed "laser" glasses which make the videos holographically explode from the TV. Welcome to the world of "psychoactive" videos, which are as much of a quantum leap from MTV as "Star Wars" was from Buck Rogers films. Amy Newberry, reporting for NBC's News Channel, said "The whole experience is like something from the future."
 Barnes, a multi-instrumentalist and technical genius, who turned down a weapons consultant job to teach music video conceptual theory at Ohio State, created the first psychoactive video, "Zobyn," in 1990. That landed him an interview on Canada's "Much Music" music video channel. By November of '91, "Seeing the Breykiot" was completed and selling on the Zaneg label in selected stores in the midwest and nationally in "Inner Technologies," a catalog that sells mind altering devices and sofware. The Video Towne chain began ordering in December, due to consumer demand, and a slow but steady wave of regional publicity and stories on the NBC News Channel and CNBC, has resulted in interest from national talk shows.
 Marshall sees psychoactive videos as potential alternatives to drugs. He's gotten support from re-hab professionals and a favorable review in "Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Weekly." With Noise Bazzar and dozens of local music video shows like "Spotlight" in St. Louis, set to pull the "trigger" this month and "Much Music" preparing for Marshall's return in April, some viewers may react the way a hapless man in Dayton, Ohio did. When the cable show, "It's The Arts," showed "Trigger Girl," a franctic caller exclaimed to the engineer for Miami Valley Cable, "My God! It looks like my TV's about to explode!"
