This video features EMEAPP’s associate director (and chief knob twiddler) Vince Pupillo Jr. taking our beautiful, fully-equipped ARP 2500 system for a melodic and rhythmic ride (along with a vintage ARP 1613 Sequencer). This performance was originally recorded for Alex Ball’s amazing film “Electromotive-The Story of ARP Instruments” which chronicles the timeline of Alan R. Pearlman and the company and instruments which resulted, with the crown jewel being the 2500. Enjoy the blippy bloopies!
The Electronic Music Education and Preservation Project (EMEAPP) is the steward of a privately held world-class curated collection of rare vintage electronic instruments and stage-used gear. This includes effects units, amps, organs, synthesizers, electro-mechanical instruments, guitars, prototypes, vintage audio/video media and analog studio gear. In addition, EMEAPP itself is developing its own focused collection.
It is our charge to cultivate and reap excellent knowledge from these unique resources and return it to our members and the world. We do this as a learning center, through research projects, creative endeavors, media programming and tours, enlightening many people along the way. There is so much to be harvested from history and EMEAPP has a key to the vault.
EMEAPP is a private museum, a critical learning center and a multi-media production studio nicely packed into a brick-and-mortar facility outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
