Ars Acustica Group(http://artsbirthday.ebu.ch)
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 (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.

by Bruno Letort
This work plays on the imagination of imaginary persons, as if the characters of a novel by Ray Bradbury or Jules Verne were to create their own world. Structured around conversations with famous sci-fi writers, and based as well on Voltaire’s “Micromégas”, one of the first texts of its kind, the work makes light of the conventions of science fiction through comic imitations and novel ideas.
The composer, a fan of American and other sci-fi films, such as “Forbidden Planet” or “The Mysterious Satellite” (Uchûjin Tokyo ni arawaru), draws on the audio tapes of this innovative period to construct a fresco of music and sounds.
Tinkering with, imitating or distorting sounds, using a string trio and drums, “SciFi_Low-Fi” takes an amused look at this odd imaginary world which could only dream of the future.
