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.

is a sound-artist from Amsterdam whose work is rooted in and continues to develop within the broadest definition of contemporary music. While his interest in the physical effects of sound on the body gave him a preference for noise in his early work, his later music has contributed more to the development of minimal electronic music, glitch and minimal-dub-techno. Mens uses electronic technology to render audible microscopic sound processes. His sound-world is in a constant state of spatial and temporal flux, and incorporates electronic music, conceptual music, found sound and influences from the media. Momentarily he is working on new compositions that are in between ambient, drone-music, 60/70's electronic music and electronic noise.
For "Art's Birthday 2008" he is preparing a short composition based around several historic recordings which are being processed and reprocessed live during the broadcast. Different kinds of digital sound processing are being used to enhance specific frequencies, colours and textures. This results in a deep, cold and spheric music that constantly redefines itself and is represented as a magnification of microscopic sonics.
