Peter Gabriel gabbles his re-released album

Peter Gabriel is promoting both his latest digital venture and the recent anniversary re-release of his 1986 album ‘So’ with a new app for the iPad.

Gabriel’s Real Word Studios has been involved in the creation of Gabble, an online service that converts simple remarks and statements into pictures at the click of a button (play here to get your head around what that means). In the ‘So… Gabble’ app, the singer’s lyrics are represented in pictorial form, and users can replace the images Gabble provides with their own pictures or illustrations, and submit their own illustrated versions of ‘So’ lyrics to Gabriel’s website.

Commenting on his latest digital venture, Gabriel says: “I’m sure Gabble will initially be used to make funny, irreverent and downright rude communications, but there are many potential serious applications that will follow. Imagine you’re on holiday in China, fall ill and need a doctor urgently. Just load your phone’s Gabble app, speak into it and your words will translate into simple pictures anyone can understand, no matter the language they speak”.

The ‘So… Gabble’ app is free for iPad users at this link.
