Brion Gysin's Poem of Poems
POSTED ON 9/20/2005 | PERMALINK |1 Comments | BOOKMARK
Recorded in 1958 at the Beat Hotel, rue Git le Coeur, Paris, on a UHER 4400 reel-to-reel recording machine, this record documents Brion Gysin's important experiments in cut-up and recording technique.

Sez Gysin:
"I made it to show Burroughs how, possibly, to use it. William did not yet have a tape recorder.

Very soon after that, Burroughs was busy punching to death a series of cheap Japanese plastic tape recorders, to which he applied himself with such force that he could punch one of them to death inside a matter of weeks, days even."
