abstract communication


Golan Levin and Zachary Lieberman have developed a new concert performance technology in which speech, shouts and songs are radically augmented in real-time by custom interactive visualization software. This work touches on themes of abstract communication, synaesthetic relationships, cartoon language, and writing and scoring systems, within the context of a sophisticated, playful, and virtuosic audiovisual narrative.

Project Created: 
October 2002

Levin is an artist, composer and designer whose work focuses on the creation, manipulation and performance of simultaneous image and sound as part of a more general examination of communications protocols for individual engagement and non-verbal dialogue. He was granted an Award of Distinction in the Prix Ars Electronica for his Audivisual Environment Suite interactive software (2000) and its accompanying audiovisual performance, Scribble (2000).

Lieberman is an artist-engineer concerned with themes of kinetic and gestural performance, interactive imaging and sound synthesis. He teaches in the Design and Technology department at Parsons School of Design, and was a Siemens Artist in Residence at the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz, Austria.
