I guess the two Manifesto, Communicating Vessels, Mad Love, and some of his poetry made a significant mark on me but as far as bringing a literary element into the music I see it as a much broader assimilation.
I think it was more personal, but I certainly tried to adapt certain concepts of Surrealism.
