Ars Acustica Group


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.

“Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?” – Richard Hamilton

ART’S BIRTHDAY 2008 from Antwerp will be performed by sounddesign-students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. Their project is coordinated and supervised by Ward Weis.

We are inspired by the collage “Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?” by Richard Hamilton. Our contribution to ART’S BIRTHDAY 2008 is a sound-collage with the element(s) the students took out of a postcard they selected by their own choice. Those elements are the basic material for the live performance / laptop concert as part of the ART’S BIRTHDAY party we have in the Winter Garten of the Royal Academy. Each participant makes an acoustic version of their postcard. Those soundcards are played as the main part in the jam-session. The original sounds will be available for all the ART’S BIRTHDAY events on

The contributors are Domenico Alluigi, Muriel Claeys, Rob Kanters, Jonathan Karsilo, Iris Roevens, Koen Roggen, Dominique T’ Jolle, Piotr Talmachou, Sandra Van Der Jeught and Ward Weis.
