Phoning It In

Dialtones (A Telesymphony) was originally presented at Ars Electronica eight years ago.  It was conceived by Golan Levin with contributors Scott Gibbons, Gregory Shakar, Yasmin Sohrawardy, Joris Lehner, Gunther Schmidl, Erich Semlak, Jonathan Feinberg and Shelly Wynecoop.  From the artists' statement in 2001, "In the hype, hate and hypnosis surrounding the mobile phone, its potential as an ingredient of art has been largely overlooked [emphasis added]."

You decide.


As an electronic media artist, Levin has created and/or collaborated on a wide range of projects.  He is also an educator and the organizer of Mobile Art && Code, a symposium to be held at Carnegie Mellon University from November 6th through 8th.  The event and online community are "dedicated to the democratization of computer programming for artists, young people, and the rest of us."
