Mind Inversion began in October 2008 as an ongoing written conversation between several friends with origins in the Midwest. While it seems writers from the coasts tend to dominate the conversation about music and culture in the media, we intend to provide an avenue to express our opinions that we think are relevant about the topics that we think are relevant. This site is not meant to focus on any one topic in particular, but is instead intended to serve as an expression of our insights on any number of given music and cultural topics (especially local and regional) that we think deserve each others attention – and yours. We open you come to the conversation with an open mind and a willingness to discuss…

If you enjoy what we are building, let us know if you would like to contribute writing or submit art or music to be reviewed. (We prefer emails with zip files – PLEASE research our writers briefly so that you can send the mail to the appropriate contributors to be reviewed).

Eric Gilardi Email:
Location: La Crosse, WI
Age: 27
Background: An intriguing individual who has always been engulfed in music. I love listening to music, attending live shows and voicing my opinion on music and whatever else I feel the need to talk about. Believe in the statement honesty is the best policy but it has been known to get me in trouble every once in a while. If you like opinions and you like music you should find my articles interesting or appalling. Feel free to voice your opinion and I will see what I can do to satisfy your urge to debate.
Music interests: : .Everything except country music with a great influence from the electronic world.
