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.

By Ivana Stefanovic

No one would tell, but a bell is a very sensitive and fragile object. It is hard to cast it. Hard to cold it out. It is hard to put it on the bell-tower. It is hard to harmonize it with other bells in order to get a harmonious chord. It often strolls from one church to another, from one clock to another till it settles down, because the one who ordered it doesn’t want it any more.

The bell easily creates harmony with other bells, but it also ruins that harmony. In the blink of an eye the bell can be removed from the bell-tower or broken with a hammer. It can be easily cast again and transformed in arms. In that way, as a peaceful symbol of spiritual arsenal, the bell becomes a killer.
