I picked up Deconstrustion Engaged, published in Australia it is Seminars in
Sydney and Melbourne from '99....its a start :-)
any other recomendations?

The essay "Tympan" at the start of "Margins of Philosophy" was my initiation and provides a compact appetizer of the Derridean method. Given that it includes the ear in its figuration, a connection is even made to sound. I recall that a favorite philosophy professor of mine had noted somewhat parenthetically that he found it difficult to trust Derrida given the latter's views on music, although I never managed to identify the troublesome references.
