Ars Acustica Group(http://www.ebu.ch/en/radio/euroradio_classics/arsacustica/index.php)
In 2008 the Ars Acustica group is joining the international Art's Birthday Parties already for the 4th time. The members of the AA Group have invited radioartists to focus for Art's Birthday 2008: "Forever young" on thoughts and ideas on how pop-culture and pop-music can sound in the future. Most of the contributions take "Forever young" as a point of reference and will be broadcast within the framework of this year's EBU Ars Acustica Special Evening.
For this international event, the Ars Acustica Group has designed a way to organize the contents which are contributed as sound "presents". Via ISDN-lines or the Internet the contributions are collected at two main points, in Vienna (ORF) and Stockholm (SR), where they are sent to the two EBU satellite channels Ravel (R) and Verdi (V). Both satellite channels (R and V) offer “ready-to-broadcast” materials along with signature-tunes and broadcast-identifications.

SIXTIES RELOADEDArt’s Birthday “Sixties Reloaded” will reconnect artists world-wide in a birthday party to celebrate the 1,000,044th anniversary of art. On air on ČRo Vltava and EBU satellites, on-line via Radio Lemurie.
Experiment is future mainstream. This sentence has echoed since the first days of modern art and avant-garde as an inciting comment for progressive and innovative production. What fortunes has the avant-garde vision been through, which originally considered itself the true vanguard of artistic developments to come? Art’s Birthday 2008 will present the current works of Czech and Slovak musicians, graphic artists, poets, and performers, who will reflect the most fruitful period of artistic experiment in this country, the 1960s. The authors, who themselves represent the contemporary Czech and Slovak artistic experiment, will present a reflection on the widely known 1960s works, arrayed in contemporary musical language and technology, under the codename Sixties Reloaded. The principles and techniques applied in the original works will thus gain new realisations in the form of musical and audio-art compositions.

Lloyd Dunn (cz/usa)
Lloyd Dunn’s composition on the motifs of Rychlík’s African Cycle examines the latent emotional content of the original sound via complex harmony shifts (sometimes discordant) of the manipulated fragments of the original composition. This is done by means of micro sampling and multiple layering over the original recording. The sound manipulation takes place on an elementary basis – on shifts of the frequency and tempo; very little in digital processing. This method of distillation results in a sound which has nothing to do with the original recording, but amplifies its emotional qualities.
