Negativland is an experimental music and sound collage band which originated in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1970s. Negativland has released a number of albums ranging from pure sound collage to more musical expositions.
In the late 1980s and early 1990s, they produced several recordings for SST Records, most notably Escape from Noise, Helter Stupid, and U2. Negativland were sued by the band U2’s record label, Island Records, and by SST Records, which brought them widespread publicity and notoriety.
Dan started out as a rabid fan of Negativland to being a contributing satellite member of the band for the past 20 years. Dan’s work is primarily graphic design and art that reflect the fantastical made-up sound collages that Negativland is known for. Dan has done countless projects for Negativland, ranging from CD packaging, posters, logos, book covers and more recently, fine art—only a few are shown here.
