Ars Acustica Group


In 2011 the Ars Acustica (AA) group is for the 7th time part of the international Art's Birthday Parties around the world.

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 ( 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.

Felix Kubin: Test signals

Felix Kubin – electronics
Veronika Zott – movement apparatus

Test signals are not exactly popular. We automatically think of broadcast breaks and geometrical images. The sound qualities of test signals range from peak tones over sweeps and white noise all the way to vocal sounds and soundcheck blabber. They are associated with a state of being before the actual program starts. They’re doomed to stay on hold for optimization.
For Art’s Birthday, sound futurist Felix Kubin from Hamburg and Vienna based performer Veronika Zott set the test signals free from the prison of functionality and condense them to a composition of interval symbols, extreme frequencies, voicing methods and sound costume movements.

Felix Kubin

Felix Kubin lives and works against the gravity with Sci-Fi Pop/Noise/Animation Films/Radio Plays/Experimental Broadcasting. As the messenger of exploding lungs he started his label “Gagarin Records” in 1998 and rules the “syndicate of counter-noise” since 9.9.1999.
