Summary "Painter and author Brion Gysin (1916-86) has become an incredibly influential artist and iconoclast. His development of the 'cut-up' technique together with William S. Burroughs has inspired several generations of writers, artists and musicians. Gysin was also a skilled networker and revered expat; together with his friend Paul Bowles, Gysin more or less constructed the post-beatnik romanticism dealing with life, music and magic in Morocco. He was also a protagonist in an international gay culture with inspirational reaches in both America and Europe. Not surprisingly, Gysin has become something of a cult figure. One of the artists he inspired is Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, who collaborated with both Gysin and Burroughs in the 1970s and 80s, while working with avant garde music/performance projects Throbbing Gristle and COUM Transmissions.The Gysin interviews made by P-Orridge have since become part of a New Wave/Industrial Culture mythos.This volume presents them in their entirety alongside three texts on Gysin by P-Orridge, plus an introduction."--Back cover.
