Lets do it live.

I was going to write an article about this years Rhode Island Mind Meld, but I dont think I could do a better job than Peter Kirn’s recent post on CreateDigitalMusic.com.

This was my second year as a participant, and I hope not my last.

It’s such a pleasure to have a creative spacetime to work and communicate with so many talented artists. I get to meet and share ideas with some of today’s top musicians and electronic artists. It is truly inspiring.

Special thanks to everyone involved, including:

Treanor Brothers Animation
Duncan Laurie
Steve Nalepa
Nick Bauta
Tony Flackett
Robotkid
Todd Thille
and of course
Peter Kirn

1991 EBN materials

EBN Images from 1991

Here are three of our original EBN images from 1991. These were created for the first Lollapalooza tour. During the tour, we sold the t-shirts and vhs tapes (what’s vhs dad?). And we “toured” in the EBV (emergency broadcast vehicle), shown here. Interestingly, I made the t-shirts with Shepard Fairey of Obey/Giant fame. We made them at his studio in Fall River.

Original EBN Poster

“Tomorrow’s Defense Entertainment Today”

Here’s a copy of the original EBN poster which I created way back in 1990. This highlighted the Telepodium Launcher (TPL), which was built by Gardner Post and Josh Pearson. This was created for a local show, and unfortunately I don’t remember what it was. If anyone remembers, let me know. There was an extra layer of text on top of this image, but I can no longer open the original quark file on this.

Here’s a pic that my friend Mark Blank sent me recently from 1985 – back in the RISD days.
