E82 is Dedicated to the Preservation, Celebration and Restoration of EPCOT's Original Philosophy: That with Imagination, Commitment, and Dedication We Can Create a New Tomorrow! The E82 Project is a ten-year endeavor, created with the specific purpose of re-vitalizing the concepts, philosophies, and goals brought forth by the original creators of EPCOT Center. E82 is divided into four pillars - Music, Art, History and Legacy.

The foundation of E82 has always been a distinctive element of Music. This realm is focused on providing the best “listening experiences” possible with the highest quality available. In many cases, the original material is restored, re-mastered, re-mixed (or all the above) creating some of the most professional and unique compilations to be found across the digital frontier.

The most unique of all E82’s offerings, ART focuses on original compositions based on classical visions of tomorrow. Computer backgrounds, Posters, Cover Art, and Merchandise items all contribute to a signature style that is (what could be called) “Clean-Retro” which is at times vintage mostly futuristic and always optimistic.

"Where Have We Come From, Where Are We Going?
The Answers Begin In Our Past." – Ray Bradbury
(Spaceship Earth, Original 1982 Script)
Drawing from almost two decades of scholarly research and expertise, History, explores the wonderful, dynamic and (at times) controversial 45-year history of the EPCOT concept. In addition to detailing the creation, development and evolution of Epcot, this segment of the E82 provides historical context and insight into the various decisive events in the concepts’ history.

The original purpose of EPCOT City was to provide "a showcase to the world of the ingenuity and imagination of American free enterprise”. EPCOT Center’s original mission was to “Entertain, Inform, and Inspire.” It is these two statements that are at the core of E82’s vision. EPCOT was never meant to be a utopian island. The ultimate objectives of these two very different concepts were to provide “new solutions” to the problems and ailments that plague our nation and our planet. In this section, E82 will explore the ways that each of us can “Live the Legacy” of EPCOT. Whether it’s igniting our creative minds to promote our own health or utilizing our combined talents to develop renewable energies to promote world stability, EPCOT still has so much to teach us about “ourselves each other and the planet we share”.
