Endless Beautiful

Endless Beautiful

By Endless Beautiful
Endless Beautiful is creative lightning caught in a podcast. For each episode, Lucas Pralle, Carolyn Decker, guests, and participants at home listen to the EB Engine, which is comprised of random recorded sounds like church bells, lighting matches, or a passing train. Here’s the kicker: Everybody creates something while they listen to the audio. This can be a poem, prose, painting, or any other type of creative output. The fascinating results are then shared and discussed on the show. It’s a live summoning and examination of the creative spirit. Visit endlessbeautiful.com for more!
Simple Machines
Carolyn and Lucas use the EB Engine to push them into new creative territory. The discussion ends up touching on language, simple machines, graphene, and happenings on the other side of closed drawers.  Find many more goodies at endlessbeautiful.com Feel free to share what you come up with on our facebook/ebcreativity You can leave a voicemail on our line at 401-484-0837
