Emergency Broadcast Network is the name of a multimedia performance group formed in 1991 that took its name from the Emergency Broadcast System. The founders were Rhode Island School of Design graduates Joshua Pearson, Gardner Post, and Brian Kane (author of the Vujak VJ software). Kane left EBN in 1992. The EBN Live Team included DJ Ron O'Donnell; video artist-technologist Greg Deocampo, founder of Company of Science and Art (CoSA); founding CTO of IFilm.com), artist-designer Tracy Brown; and programmer-technologist Mark Marinello.
More of a multi-media organization than a band, Emergency Broadcast Network construct video pastiches much as techno artists use samplers to create audio effects. Josh Pearson (Public Relations Programmer) and Gardner Post (Systems Manager) met at the Rhode Island School of Design in the early '80s and began to experiment with video samples, adding DJ Ron O'Donnell in 1990. Packing a Chevy truck with all their gear, the trio followed the 1991 Lollapalooza tour around America, broadcasting soundtracked videos to somewhat confused concertgoers. The band's first release, in the form of a video (Commercial Entertainment Product) and an audio CD (Behavior Modification), appeared in 1992 on TVT. EBN gained a huge audience later that year when U2 used one song as an opening for their Zoo TV tour. In 1995, the trio released their second album, but also spent time producing videos for the likes of Coldcut and other electronica favorites.
