Brion Gysin’s Dream Machine has become a kind of elitist status symbol, often found in the possession of West Coast media types and young celebrities.
Kurt Cobain bought one shortly before his death. David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Paul McCartney all used it. Other aficionados include Marilyn Manson, Floria Sigismondi, Bruce Labruce, Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck and DJ Spooky.
Gysin always believed it deserved exploration and adoption as a simple, drug-free path to altered states of consciousness
