Creative Methods: Writing Lyrics Using Magazine Cutouts

As artists, it is so important to use several different methods for creation of work. We as humans pull information from everything around us, including other forms of media. In this composition I used a series of magazine cut outs and arranged them in the best way possible to write some lyrics. The lyrics are read from the top left in a circle:

The lyrics read:

You got vinyl and table top DJ systems? I’m more efficient than a room full of a different vibe.
Easy to spot. Artificial tone so rich you’ll come visit planet earth. Want to hear us? Just turn on the radio. Up with the system and get the full effect.
Change your program, very four dimensional inspiration. It doesn’t just wash away your cares it drowns them.
The recording console has officially been broken.
My friends are envious. My enemies are scared. Panic.
Bust out intelligence that brings along a tone.
Change your life, double check the price, name that toon.
48 hours and still ticking, still alive. Now come hear the results.
So you might want to get the passion and surrender to the handwriting on the wall.
