Burroughs, The Cut-Up Films (1963-1972), Henry Miller reading from Black Spring and The Colossous of Maroussi (both 1949), Samuel Beckett, Not I (with Billie Whitelaw, 1971), Jorge Luis Borges, The Mirror Man, György Ligeti’s Poème Symphonique for 100 metronomes, Cinema of Transgression Early 1980s Lower East Side Films: Kern, Moritsugu, Pfahler, Wojnarowicz, etc., and Erik Satie’s Pièces pour Guitare Played by Pierre Laniau (1982).
