KUNSTRADIO - September 31, 1991[START] [ARTSAT - CD] [PICTURES]
For the first time in the history of soviet space travel, next to scientific and technical exmperiments, an art project was performed - as a subproject of "AUSTROMIR".
Under the title "ARTSAT" Richard Kriesche concieved a multi-dimensional project - the first outer-space-artwork of this kind. He invited ten prominant composers to collaborate on the ARTSAT-project: from the decoded digital signal of the live dispatch, that the Astronaut Franz Viehböck sent from space, they composed the short listening pieces for the ORF-Kunstradio. These acustic bits from outer space were able to be heard in this broadcast.
