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.

Sara's Dreams for Voice and Recycled Tape Fragments

Sara is a 5.5 year old little girl who sings in a well-tempered perfect-tuned voice, plays piano like Mozart at her age and writes and reads capitals. Because of her multi branched family tree she always dreams vivid and tempestuous dreams, in which she often plays an important role. The story begins in a travel-like repetitive mood. Then the athmospheres of spatial wonder and haunting follow. Strange images, derived from everyday impressions and old memories, bring past into the present. Cutting her way through the thickness of a piano improvisation, Sara travels back in time, into her early youth, when she was 1. She plays compositions of a 9 year young composer, and is confronted with chunks of old unpublished electroacoustic fragments by three 29 year young composers. On her return she swims deep into old radio and disco-music phantasmas. She summons the Sun and leaves the Little Fish live.
