Ars Acustica Group(http://www.ebu.ch/en/radio/euroradio_classics/arsacustica/index.php)
In 2007 the Ars Acustica group is joining the international Art's Birthday Parties for the third time. Most of their contributions take 100 years of radio as a point of reference and will be broadcast within the framework of this year's EBU Ars Acustica Special Evening. Radio's 100th anniversary goes back to the first wireless transmission of sound and voice by Reginald Aubrey Fessenden on Christmas Eve 1906. This transmission was the starting point from which
"Fessenden went on to develop the theory and practice of continuous wave transmission that we use today for AM and FM radio broadcasts." (Peter Courtemanche).
For this international event, the Ars Acustica Group has designed a way to organize the contents which are contributed as sound "presents". Via ISDN-lines or the Internet the contributions are collected at two main 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.

Art's Birthday Party – Live from Madrid (RNE)
The cellular telephone is no more only a telephone: it is sound, fixed and moving images, text and interactivity and even artistic and generating object of art. Our proposal belongs to sound art, as the composition of a constructed technological soundscape like a puzzle whose fragments are sonic moments that have been selected and sent by our friends. It is therefore a choral piece that allows several listeners to become emitters thanks to the transformations of the radio waves. An small game in which telephone takes part of radio and radio of telephone, on which the listener transforms himself in an emitter and the emitter in listener. An acoustic map on small scale of this area of Europe.
