FINNISH RADIO EXPERIMENTAL STUDIOS
YLE has a tradition of radiophonic works more than 25 years. Some early 50`s radio drama works already used ideas and technology later coming known as electro-acoustic music and text-sound works. The basic production and performing facilities are in Finnish Radio Experimental Studios, a radiophonic production workshop since 1972 including two studios and a loudspeaker orchestra system. The authors of Ars Acustica are mostly composers, sound designers, writers and artists.
One of the special developments in YLE is ProTon sound art research and performing group which has arranged appr. 20 outside large scale sound art projects and has been touring around Europe with their performings.
