In 1990 an eager young generation of socially-conscious music lovers purchased a million copies of “Red, Hot + Blue.” We popped open our cassettes or CDs, threw them into boom boxes and danced to Neneh Cherry, U2, Fine Young Cannibals and others covering the songs of Cole Porter.
Now we carry thousands of songs on devices the size of a matchbook, but not much has changed about the way we interact with music. It’s still there but we can’t play with it.
John Carlin, the man who created Red Hot Organization, wants to change all that. As CEO of Funny Garbage, John has been creating award-winning interactive experiences and digital strategy since 1996. Now he’s ready to spark a digital creative revolution. He sees a future that draws together musicians, artists, creatives and digital producers to imagine the next wave of true interactivity.
