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.

Antonio Agúndez (Cáceres, Spain, 1952)

“I began to work in electroacoustic music at the end of the sixties, with only two tape recorders, several oscillators, microphones and units of reverberation and echo, until there came the first synthesizers of voltage controlled of EMS. Then already in 1970-1972, I produced a series of improvisations with a synthesizer VCS-3 and a tape recorder REVOX in feedback of echo with a few very interesting results.
On those recollections of when " I was very young " and with a been reborn spirit “forever young " and with RNE's help, (Radio Nacional de España) and Jose Iges I work in this piece on five basic tracks that are intermingling and happening, some tried with amplifier of voltage controlled in the style of those years, as in others with a constant effect of reverberation and echo.
The basic tracks are a low mantra and a trip in underground for Madrid, a conversation was rolling to a friends' gathering that we met every week to eat and to play to the dominoes in a restaurant in canon to three voices, one sequence of oscillators and amplifiers of voltage controlled by the Beethoven’s concert for violin and orchestra, a track of engines of different vehicles and an improvisation with a synthesizer. Definitively it is a question of a tour for the sound and the idea of those years for which now we will be forever young.”
