liptikl docs online now

Postby imtim » Thu Nov 29, 2007 12:41 am

OK, it is a starter for 10, and we will be adding to this, but you will be able to understand more about it (incl from the screenshots). The software will be available for general download and trial in the next few days, and then purchase when the store is up.

The only way to tell if liptikl is going to be helpful for you is to try it when it is available. We are looking forward to feedback on how people get on with it, and in which directions they wish us to take it...

Enjoy!

Looking at the docs, I am 'tickl'd pink' :D

Many years ago I was fascinated by David Bowie's take on Burroughs/Brion Gysin's 'cut-up' technique. It seemed he had arrived at some very interesting inspirations using current news clippings (and his unique mind of course). Having had a pretty decent 'poetry generator' on my Commodore 64! I assumed a quick 'Google' would turn up many options in the age of OSX...au contraire mon friar ;-(

Looking at 'Liptikl's' engine, I see this area finally being opened up for modern interpretations/creations. Congratulations! I'm sold just by what the screenshot intimates ;-)

btw, I am quite excited given the illiteracy/banality of much of todays media writing...they already have gone half way to the surreal and ridiculous (in a good way for my sense of art and humor), I look forward to 'Liptikl's 'form quantization' to give that final nudge into a metered art of these times we liff* ;-)

*In that spirit, a reference to Douglas Adam's 'The Meaning Of Liff'.

Premature I know, but some ideas that I would like to see 'conceptually referenced' in some future version (if they are not already ;-) ).

-Anagrams (ala Eno's early lyrics)...some way to include the variations one can generate with anagrams into results? (just one idea)

-Mesostics ('acrostics' ala John Cage)...the idea of the selection of the words ('reading through' as Cage called it) using a 'key word/phrase/name). One reference here:

And an 'online' generator:

Probably best illustrated in 'Silence' by John Cage

-Jeff Noon's 'Cobralingus' concepts (music remixing tecniques applied to words):

Cheers Chris!

User feedback will help shape its direction as we move it forward. Hope you enjoy playing with it and find it useful!
