Levin is an artist, designer and composer interested in creating artifacts
and experiences which explore supple new modes of audiovisual expression.
His work has focused on the design of systems for the creation and performance
of simultaneous image and sound, as part of a more general examination
of communications protocols for individual engagement and non-verbal dialogue.
Most recently, Levin and his colleagues presented the Dialtones Telesymphony
(2001), a concert whose sounds are wholly performed through the choreographed
ringing of the audience's own mobile phones. Levin was granted an Award
of Distinction in the Prix Ars Electronica for his Audiovisual Environment
Suite (2000) interactive software and its accompanying audiovisual performance,
Scribble (2000), developed in collaboration with Scott Gibbons and Greg
Shakar. Between 1998 and 2000, Levin studied with John Maeda in the Aesthetics
and Computation Group at the MIT Media Laboratory. Prior to this, he worked
as a research scientist and interaction designer at Interval Research
Corporation for four years. He currently lives and works in New York City.
Scribble  is a colour-music concert performed live on the Audiovisual Environment Suite, a set of interactive software systems which allow people to create and manipulate abstract animation and synthetic sound in real time. Scribble revives and updates a decades-old tradition of kinetic light performance, featuring tightly-coupled sounds and dynamic visuals which are at times carefully scored, and at other times loosely improvised.
