2000 | Golan Levin, Gregory Shakar and Scott Gibbons


Scribble (2000: Golan Levin, Gregory Shakar and Scott Gibbons) is a live audiovisual concert originally commissioned in 2000 by the Ars Electronica Festival. Performed on custom software, Scribble revives and updates a decades-old tradition of kinetic light performance, featuring tightly-coupled sounds and dynamic abstract visuals which are at times carefully scored, and at other times loosely improvised.

Scribble is performed on the Audiovisual Environment Suite (AVES), a set of seven interactive systems which allow people to create and perform abstract animation and sound, simultaneously, in real time. Each instrument is an experimental attempt to design an interface which is supple and easy to learn, yet can also yield interesting, infinitely variable and personally expressive performances in both the visual and aural domains.

Scribble has been presented in solo, duo and trio formats at more than 30 international festivals and venues. The following 3'06" YouTube video shows excerpts from the premiere of Scribble at the Ars Electronica Festival, 2000. (The same video is available for download in Quicktime format at the bottom of this page.) This was a trio performance with Scott Gibbons and Gregory Shakar.
