Audiovisual Environment Suite
Golan Levin (US)
The "Audiovisual Environment Suite" is a collection of five interactive artworks which allow people to create and perform dynamic animation and sound in ways which are direct, engaging, gestural and communicative.
While the computer is an excellent starting point for abstract visual experimentation, sound is often overlooked as an expressive element beyond music and literally recorded sounds. In this work I have attempted to bond visual and aural abstractions that exhibit a unique property of unification in expressive voice. This work is important as it represents a vision for creative activity on the computer, in which uniquely ephemeral dynamic media blossom from the expressive “voice” of a human user.
