I am drawn to any form of sampling...

"Cut-ups involves taking (usually) unrelated texts, literally cutting the pages up, and then combining and rearranging the pieces to form new narratives and often-surreal images. This form of writing can also be adapted for film making, as demonstrated by Burroughs and director Antony Balch in their early 1960s short film, The Cut-Ups." - Wiki

Burroughs & Brion Gysin also wrote a book utilizing the same method.
