One of my favorite poets is William S. Burroughs. While I do not always agree with what he says, he is one of the most fascinating people to hear speak his logic. His influence is undeniable in the area of underground music and cut up art. If you have not heard his work I highly recommend it. I took some quotes from his large body of work and injected them into a trance tune. I intended the speech to be almost indecipherable so I did include the lyrics to follow the computer quoting Burroughs in order.

GENIUS ON SO MANY LEVELS!
I BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE LOST WHAT IT IS TO BE "ALIVE"

WHAT IF ART AND MUSIC REPLACED LANGUAGE
AND EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE WERE MORE VALUABLE THAN MONEY OR POSSESIONS?

THANK YOU JOHN smiley

Well, I guess it's the 10th anniversary of his passing this very month. His influence does move around some potent circles. Intense track John. I played this a few times with the good 'phones on to catch the layers in here.

Well thank you all for chiming in on this one. I wish I could have used more quotes but if I used everyone I had selected the track would be a half hour long.

Great concept. Wasn't it Burroughs who gave the inspiration for Steely Dan's name?
