Ars Acustica Group(http://www.ebu.ch/en/radio/euroradio_classics/arsacustica/artsbirthday.php)
In 2009 the Ars Acustica (AA) group is joining the international Art's Birthday Parties already for the 5th time. This year the Ars Acustica is celebrating Art’s Birthday on January 16th - the evening before the birthday. Radio artists are involved by the members of the group to focus on the saying “Safe and Sound”. In a rapidly changing and increasingly unforeseeable world, safety has become a major concern on many levels of public and private life. The double meaning of the word sound as acoustic phenomenon and as synonym for good health points to the role of the aural sense and the voice as crucial devices of human self-perception.
The Ars Acustica Group has joined the international Art’s Birthday parties in 2004. Since then it organizes the contributed contents like most of the participants of the Art’s Birthday Network (http://artsbirthday.net) do - as "presents" for ART. Via ISDN-lines and/or the Internet the contributions are collected at two 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. Both channels can also be further mixed or remixed with other live-material.

Gert-Jan Prins : Electronics, Percussion
( IJmuiden, the Netherlands, 1961) has been known for twenty years as one of the most challenging sound artists in the Netherlands.He is an autodidact who focuses on the sonic and musical qualities of electronic 'noise', In his work, Prins makes connections with modern electronic club culture, occupying a radical position with his investigation of electronic sound
and its relationship to the visual. He also creates links with the performance art and machine art of the 1980s, which reshaped the legacy of industrial society to produce threatening, yet sometimes also sublime, encounters with technology.
Prins has built various analogue- and digital electronic systems that create signals within the listenable audio domain such as custom-built FM radio transmitters and receivers, similar to the instruments of American composer David Tudor.
Besides his solo-project, current projects include MIMEO, Synchronator (with Dutch video artist Bas van Koolwijk), The Flirts (with Cor Fuhler), he has collaborated with Pita, Thomas Lehn, Lee Ranaldo, Anne la Berge, Fennesz, the Vacuum Boys, Peter van Bergen, Marcus Schmickler, Raed Yassin, Koen Nutters, Norbert Moslang, Tomas Korber, Thomas Ankersmit, Giuseppe Ielasi, Carlos Giffoni, Luc Houtkamp and Misha Mengelberg and many others.
