EBU Ars Acustica Special Evening
Sunday, January 16, 2005 , 20-24 h CET (19-23 h GMT)
The Ars Acustica Group of the EBU is joining the global Art's Birthday celebrations for the first time. Pre-produced pieces e.g. by the SWR in Baden-Baden, by the RBB in Berlin and by Ward Weis in Antwerp as well as live improvisations from the Art's Birthday parties in Madrid, Moscow, Prag, Stockholm and Vienna are contributed. These pieces and sounds are made available for listening into as well as serving as source material which will be remixed into new pieces via the EBU satellite, ISDN lines and the internet. At the same time these contributions are the Ars Acustica members' donations to Art's Birthday. This exchange of birthday presents will not only take place between the artists engaged by the Ars Acustica members but also with artists and artistsgroups from the Art's Birthday network, art-institutions, non-commercial radios and/or webradios like CITR FM in Vancouver, Radio Kinesonus in Tokyo, ResonanceFM in London, art@radio in Baltimore and others.
Some of the participating radio stations broadcast their mixes of the Special Evening live. Others broadcast their versions or reports either at the same time or later on - like the SüdWestRundfunk in Baden-Baden and the Norwegian Radio in Oslo.
