David Woodard is an eccentric LA-based composer, artist, and writer who was pals with William Burroughs. Woodard makes Dreamachines, the hallucinogenic "flicker" device that Brion Gysin and Ian Sommerville invented and Burroughs wrote about. He also composes "prequiems," music written for a specific individual to hear as they die. Woodard is inarguably an interesting guy. This is a link to an Orange County Weekly article about him.
