Kunstradio is collaborating with Experimental Studio of Slovensky Rozhlas (http://artradio.sk), with IMA - Institute of Media Archaeology (http://www.ima.or.at) and with Tilos Radio Budapest (http://tilos.hu) for a two-day-Happy-Birthday-event, as usual online, on site and on air. The “Fête Permanente” will take place at the exhibition “Magical Soundmachines” at the Kulturfabrik Hainburg on the shore of the Danube, close to Vienna and even closer to Bratislava. “Magical Soundmachines” presents a range of unique historical sound generators, recorders and transmitters – and they are here to be played. http://ima.or.at/klangmaschinen
On Friday, 16 January 2009,you can witness the performances of two extravagant orchestras formed especially for this occasion: IMA’s magical soundmachines orchestra consists of Austrian musicians playing the rarities displayed in the exhibition, and the second group is the intergalactic joystick orchestra put together by Experimental Studio Bratislava.
The concert can be listened to via the EBU Ravel satellite (live 8.05-8.40pm CET, 7.05-7.40pm GMT), on Radio Devín (8-9pm CET), on ORF’s Radio Ö1 (live 11.05-12pm CET) as well as on kunstradio.at (live 8-12pm CET).

On Saturday, 17 January 2009,we continue with the on site party: everyone is welcome not only to come to Kulturfabrik Hainburg, but also to bring and present sound gifts dedicated to Art. This means: if you would like to perform, either let us know in advance (firstname.lastname@example.org) or – for spontaneous congratulations – just turn up and join in! We especially encourage using the opportunity to listen into other parties worldwide via web streams, to mix them and thus approach Filliou’s original vision of the Eternal Network.
Master of ceremony Hubsi Kramar will lead through the evening, allowing for unpredictable situations and surprise performers to merge into the program. En aka Pal Tóth (Budapest) and Astrid Schwarz (Vienna) will contribute live mixes of incoming streams. The following artists will participate: Dorit Chrysler, Klaus Filip, Andrew Garton, Bernhard Fleischmann, Volkmar Klien, Matthias Makowsky, Pia Palme, Bruno Pisek with Benedikt Guschlbauer, Clemens Hausch, Gerald Krist and Ulrich Kühn, Die Fuchteln and many more.
Since the city of Hainburg is holding their annual ball on the very same day and right next to the “Magical Soundmachines” exhibition, we ask Art’s Birthday visitors to dress up in their finest ball gowns and black tie – another well mannered way of expressing our appreciation for Art.
For those who cannot come to Hainburg but would still like to contribute by making gifts to Art: please upload your acoustic or visual presents using the Art's Birhday Uploader.
In it’s 1.000,0046th year of being, Art needs you more than ever…!
