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.

di-ba baab, di-ya beu
fantasia per quasi un flauto

In a small cave 50,000 years ago, a stone age man, most likely a Neanderthal, apparently drilled three identical well-considered holes with a stone tool in the thigh bone of a young cave bear and from the resulting object enticed a simple melody. With the sounds that reverberated through the cave he is thought to have crossed the border between animal instincts and higher consciousness, thus paving the way to creative spirituality. This apparently took place in the cave Divje Babe I, beneath Šebrelje in the Divje Babe Archaeological Park. The cave is therefore frequently referred to as “the cradle of world music”. Even today among scientists there is no consensus as to whether the so-called “Mousterian flute” is actually the work of human hands and whether our distant ancestors really used it as a musical instrument, but there is room for speculation.

In the composition di-ba baab, di-ya beu the Mousterian flute is joined by an instrument with roots in the much less distant past; the origins of the accordion coincide with the beginning of the industrial revolution, while contemporary modifications have had a decisive influence on the instrument. The sonic picture is completed with the electronic paleosylator (a sample-oriented simulator of proto-attempts of speech articulation) and by means for the electronic treatment of sound.

Instrumentation: Mousterian flute, two accordions, paleosylator, electronics

Performers: Ljuben Dimkaroski (Mousterian flute), Marko Hatlak (accordion), Luka Juhart (accordion), Bor Turel (electronics), Gregor Pirš (paleosylator, electronics)

Realisation: Radio Slovenia, studio of Bor Turel, Yellow Room Studio.
