"A Kind of Western Tarot": Cut-Ups / Découpé #5

The more I do cut-ups, the more I read up on its rich history of so many artists who were influenced or inspired by this technique and have adopted it into their own song writing.

Aside from David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, and Radiohead, there was also The Beatles! They included William Burroughs on the Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover.

From The Beats to rock and roll, pop, and punk, the symbiotic relationship between musical and literary innovation has made cut-ups the unique - and oh so fun - technique that it is.

Like what this Découpé #5 is saying, it really is, in many ways, one of many sensations.
