Digital Hollywood Awards - 1996
Todd won the Best Music CD-ROM Award for the Individualist
Top 100 Multimedia Producers
Todd was named one of the Top 100 Multimedia Producers
by Multimedia Producer Magazine
in the November 1995 issue.
Todd began developing a reputation for being a high-tech performance artist when he performed the first live
concert broadcast by microwave in 1978, and followed it up a year later by producing RCA's first demo for the
videodisc format. Since then, he produced the first interactive audio-only CD-ROM, No World Order, in 1993.
Todd's latest "multimedia album," The Individualist, released last summer, highlights the profound message of
his music: "Change in the world emanates from the inside out - not from the outside in; therefore the highest
calling that one can have is to understand one's self, particularly in relationship to consensus reality," he says.

Something/Anything? was #61 and A Wizard, A True Star was #93 in the
Critics Poll from 1995.
