Ian Sommerville programmed software to generate [Gysin’s] computer poems, which was reenacted by Joseph Moore as the “Permutation” software for the exhibition Brion Gysin: Dream Machine (2010) at the New Museum in New York.
Postscript: Dec. 14 — Per William Osborne’s comment, here is Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ song “Can’t Hold Us” as performed by Aubrey Logan. I agree with him, heartily. She’s terrific. Her cover swings. If Gysin were around, I think he’d agree. As the song goes, “It don’t mean a thing (if it ain’t got that thing).” And it would be cool if the “experimental word Geeks,” as Osborne puts it, were to pick up on his Gysin / Beckett suggestion.
