Most Helpful Customer Reviews

8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Robert Whitaker Sirignano on April 29, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A study and review of the Brion Gysin invention "The Dream Machine", as seen by the few that ever were able to get their hands on one.

They were constructed as a hollow tube with cut outs of various shapes on it, set upon a rotating device (a record player), with a light souce dangling from within.

This is dated, since there exist a vast number of machines, like The Nova Pro, David PAL, and other sound and light machines, all which deal with the same phenomena, but do it at a more rapid pace.

Still, this intreresting book shows a clip of history, and explains where such things came from, what they do and why it didn't go forward.

Interesting reading for those interested in Light and Sound Machines, and those interested in the ideas that propelled the "Beat Generation" writers.
