Description

Do you write, e.g. song / music / rap lyrics, poetry, haikus etc? Liptikl and its cut-up approach might unlock new ideas for you. Users say of Liptikl: "Brion Gysin, William S. Burroughs, BOWIE! This is the closest "cut & Paste" writing generator I've ever been able to find.", "I used Liptikl extensively while writing lyrics for my last album and found it incredibly useful", "Liptikl is the key to unlocking word combinations and mental scenery", "Ideas fall from the sky with this app. No more writers block on lyrics!"

The cut-up technique is a powerful process for stimulating creative writing. The random word associations Liptikl comes up with can give you new options to consider, bringing extra advantage & fresh ideas to explore. It could be just what you are looking for to spark something original and different.

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH LIPTIKL
• Help unblock writer's block
• Mash together up to 3 different bodies of text
• Easily come up with new and exciting word arrangements
• Get more ideas for music or rap lyrics, poems, copy or ads
• Generate unusual, obscure, non-obvious, ambiguous and unexpected results
• Randomise only the words you want to, lock the others

HOW TO USE IT
• Input up to 3 different sources of words, paragraphs or other text material. The input sources could be complete chapters, tracts or paragraphs, news or current affairs, some of your past lyrics or writing, or even collections of your favourite words. Liptikl uses in-built rules to generate cut-up word arrangements from these.
• Decide how you want the word output to look in terms of length and lines.
• Create a cut-up to mix the words together, then customize and edit them to get your output.
• 'Lock down' the words or arrangements that you like and use Liptikl to try other words in the unlocked positions.
• Tip: Files created in Liptikl Desktop can also be opened and used in Liptikl Mobile (available for purchase separately).

Example 1: Come up with something completely new. Try mixing a Shakespeare sonnet with some Tolstoy and then add in some show news story or headline.

Example 2: Start from something, and work around it. Load up some of your own writing and favourite words, and then let Liptikl replace certain words with those from your source material.

COPYRIGHT
If you use Liptikl to come up with something you like, make sure that it does not infringe the copyright of any of your source material. Liptikl is pretty good at creating random "word cut-ups", but it is just a tool for you to use to generate ideas. It is ultimately your responsibility to make sure you are not infringing anyone else's copyright.
