"Cut-up technique" nghĩa là gì?
"Cut-up technique" = phương pháp cắt ghép -> nghĩa là kĩ thuật viết lách, chia nhỏ các dòng trong quyển sách hay đoạn văn rồi ghép lại, phương pháp này được tiểu thuyết gia William Burroughs phổ cập.
Writer, painter and filmmaker, Brion Gysin, showed the famous American beat author, William Burroughs, the cut-up technique before it was then popularised (phổ cập). In fact, Burroughs implemented (thực hiện) the technique for part of his Naked Lunch book. Burroughs best explains why an artist may use this technique: “In fact all street shots from movie or still cameras are by the unpredictable (không đoán được) factors of passers by and juxtaposition (kề nhau) cut ups.
You can watch Burroughs demonstrating his cut-up technique above, and forever find this clip in our collection of Cultural Icons, which lets you see great writers, filmmakers, and thinkers talking in their own words.

(It reminds me of Brian Eno’s line: “Naming something is the same as inventing it.”) Here’s how Burroughs explained it.
