Dimensions of the composite/cut-up texts.
”Cleave fast to mayhem and let no arson be away from thee and clamp murder to thy breast with WHOOOOOPS of seal leaps at your throat in Ralph’s. Not a bit alarmed about that think of something else.” (Burroughs: Interzone .166)
Mayhem: Milan is conquered
“Mayhem is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1984 in Oslo, Norway. They are regarded as one of the pioneers of the influential Norwegian black metal scene. Mayhem's career has been highly controversial, primarily due to the suicide of vocalist Dead, murder of guitarist Euronymous by bassist Varg Vikernes, and their violent stage performances.” (Wikipedia)
“Members and fans of the Norwegian black metal scene claimed responsibility for over 50 arson attacks on Christian churches between 1992–1996” (Wikipedia)
“On 10 August 1993, Vikernes and Snorre Ruch travelled from Bergen to Aarseth’s (Mayhem Guitarist) apartment in Oslo. Upon their arrival a confrontation began, which ended when Vikernes fatally stabbed Aarseth. His body was found outside the apartment with twenty-three cut wounds – two to the head, five to the neck, and sixteen to the back.” (Wikipedia)
Like dreams the composite texts seem to refer to past, present and future events in random order and mixed sequence. This is one interpretation, or should it rather be one attempt to import meaning on words that have none? Or the demented dead from a timeless state of being where all is at once – singularity – communicate via seemingly random factors and Burroughs tapped into their frequency? – Go figure.
