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.

RTÉ lyric fm Ireland - EBU Arts Birthday 2008

Artist: Boxcutter
Producer: Sarah Blake (
Production Co-ordinator: Eoin O’Kelly
Engineer: tbc
Location: Studio 8, RTE, Dublin

RTÉ lyric fm will join the Arts Birthday celebrations at 22.25 with a live studio set from Boxcutter, one of Ireland’s leading electronic music producers. For the Arts Birthday, Boxcutter will present brand new material, as well as elements of older tracks reworked and recombined on the fly. His set will feature laptop-based playing as well as live improvisation on guitars and basses, and some melodica and synth playing.

Barry Lynn (1980), aka Boxcutter is a musician and producer from County Armagh in Northern Ireland. He takes in a diverse range of influences to make a wide spectrum of abstract, but also warm and organic, electronic music. His debut album, “Oneiric”, was released in April 2006 on Mike Paradinas’ Planet Mu imprint, to widespread critical acclaim. Its fractured take on the London-centric dubstep sound drew it many accolades, including being named as one of the best Electronica albums of 2006 in the Wire's end of year review. The follow-up album, titled "Glyphic", was released in October 2007, and a further album of early material entitled "Balancing Lakes" is due in early 2008. He's also been called upon to remix material by Amon Tobin, amongst others. Barry has performed in clubs and concert halls all over the UK and Europe.
