Description

Brion Gysin - Self-Portait Jumping

An album based on texts by the legendary American poet, painter and writer who has influenced two generations of artists. After a brief involvement with the Surrealists, Gysin was one of the first Anglo-saxons who moved to Morocco in the early fifties. He became a close friend of William Burroughs', and invented the cut-up technique, which was largely used by the author of "The Naked Lunch" throughout his work.

Recorded shortly before his death in 86, this album is a unique document featuring Brion Gysin singing/rapping his own texts on music by Ramuntcho Matta, with performances by Don Cherry, Elli Medeiros, Steve Lacy, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Caroline Loeb, etc.
