Gould is widely known for his unusual habits. He usually hummed while he played the piano, and his recording engineers had mixed results in how successfully they were able to exclude his voice from recordings. Gould claimed that his singing was subconscious and increased proportionately with the inability of the piano in question to realize the music as he intended.

“Brion Gysin: Dream Machine” at the New Museum is the first comprehensive presentation of the painter, performer, poet, and writer Brion Gysin. This app is inspired by Gysin’s Dreamachine (1961), a kinetic light sculpture that utilizes the “flicker” effect to induce visions when experienced with closed eyes. The Dreamachine contains flickering light effects that should be avoided by people with seizure disorders and by those otherwise susceptible to seizures.
