Scrapple (Performance)

2005 | Golan Levin with Sue Costabile and Gregory Shakar

Scrapple (Performance)

Scrapple (2005: Golan Levin) is an audiovisual performance in which everyday objects placed on a table are interpreted as sound-producing marks in an “active score.” The Scrapple system scans a table surface as if it were a kind of music notation, producing music in real-time from any objects lying there. The 3-meter long table produces a 4-second audio loop, allowing the performers to improvise audiovisual compositions in real-time.

Scrapple exists in both installation and performance formats. More information about the interactive installation version of Scrapple can be found here.

Scrapple was created with support from the artist residency program of the Ars Electronica Futurelab. The Scrapple performance has been presented at the following venues, among others:
