Rub Out the Word: A William S. Burroughs Centennial Event is an extended multi-media performance work. It features an actor, an 11-piece orchestra, electroacoustic sound and visual projections under the direction of composer/Burroughs scholar Glen Hall. Hall uses Burroughs' cut-up technique in creating compositions, electroacoustic sound montages, and text for the actor/narrator, all based on characters and scenes from "Naked Lunch", "Nova Express", "The Wild Boys" and "Last Words of Hassan Sabbah.".

Hall has devoted significant energy to musical extrapolations of Burroughs starting with Hallucinations (1997) and reaching a peak with this production featuring the live visual processing of John Creson and Adam Rosen and local jazz impresario Ron Gaskin in the role of Burroughs/the narrator. This concert was also part of Hall’s 416 Creative Improvisers’ Festival.
