Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Monty Cantsin is a multiple-use name that anyone can adopt, but has close ties to Neoism. Monty Cantsin was originally conceived as an "open pop star." In a philosophy anticipating that of free software and open source, anyone should perform in his name and thus contribute to and participate in his fame and achievements. The name was coined in 1978 by the critic, prankster and Mail Artist David Zack as a nom de plume for the Latvian-born poet and singer Maris Kundzins. It further alludes to Martial Canterel, the wizard-hero of Raymond Roussel's novel Locus Solus, Monte Capanno, a Northern Italian villa near Perugia where Zack had taught a San Jose State College study and living community in 1970, Monte Cazazza, a Californian performance artist and i dustrial music performer.show more
