    Reissue of a tape originally released in the Staaltape Documentatie Serie. Brion Gysin (1916-1986) dabbled with surrealism in the 1930s, lived in the Interzone of Tangier in the 1950’s, traveled the Algerian Sahara and was resident in the Beat Hotel in Paris. He introduced William Burroughs to the cut-up method and invented the Dream Machine, a hypnotic light device with the power to induce hallucinations. This tape is an interview conducted by Harry Hoogstraten in the early 1980s. In 1950s Tangier Gysin ran a mythical restaurant called The Thousand And One Nights where he presented the trance and exorcism sounds of the Master Musicians Of Joujouka. Later on he introduced Brian Jones and the Rolling Stones to the Pipes of Pan. The second tape is a live registration by the Master Musicians of Joujouka, recorded live in France. Edition of 100 copies.
