The long-awaited Brion Gysin retrospective book is finally due out in the Fall from Thames and Hudson. Gysin (1916-1986) not only created mind-blowing calligraphic paintings, he discovered the cut-up technique later popularized by William Burroughs, co-invented the trance-inducing Dreamachine, pioneered sound poetry, introduced Brian Jones to the Master Musicians of Jajouka, and inspired industrial culture artists like Genesis P-Orridge and the Hafler Trio. Edited by curator Jose Ferez Kuri, Brion Gysin: Tuning in to the Multimedia Age will contain reproductions of his paintings and graphics, samples of his permutated writings, and reminisces by the likes of Burroughs, John Giorno, and Gregory Corso.
