Summary:
Brion Gysin (1916-1986) was a visual artist, historian, novelist, and an experimental poet credited with the discovery of the "cut-up" technique -- a collage of texts, not pictures -- which his longtime collaborator William S. Burroughs put to more extensive use. He is also considered one of the early innovators of sound poetry, which he defines as "getting poetry back off the page and into performance."
