Psycho III


Carter's Notes

I was approached by Penguin Audiobooks to write incidental music to accompany William S. Burroughs' reading of his book "Junky". It felt like some small thing I could do to express my admiration for his work. Burroughs was already in his 80s and they were recording a little bit of the book every day. Within a year he had died.
