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 Vienna (ORF)
100 years after the first ever broadcast of voice and music kunstradio invites an international network of artists to search their own territories for further firsts in radio history. The first transmission in stereo, the first of the longest, most popular or weirdest series of shows, etc. Soundfiles of these we provide to everybody in our network to re-interpret, re-combine, to mix and mince. The artists subsequently stream their versions of other people's magic media moments as their presents to our arts' birthday celebration in Vienna.
Feeding on these (un-)educated re-interpretations of numerous firsts in radio Volkmar Klien will intertwine in real-time the radiophonic results of our networked efforts regarding our medium's history and Robert Filiou's 'Whispered History of Art'.
This will be remixed further using sounds from artists' performances and contributions to our party at the Radiokulturhaus in Vienna to form our satellite present to the EBU's celebration of art's birthday.
Volkmar Klienworks in various areas of the sonic arts; from electronica to interactive installations, from sonic interventions to orchestral compositions. Presentations of his work have included concerts and installations at festivals and institutions such as Ballett Frankfurt, Volksoper Wien, the Institute for Contemporary Art London, Musikverein Wien, the ZKM and the Huddersfield Festival of Contemporary Music.
Born 1971 near Vienna he studied composition at the city's University of Music and Performing Arts and philosophy at the University of Vienna. 1997 - 2002 he spent in London working as a freelance artist, a research fellow at the Royal College of Arts and external lecturer at the London Institute. He gained a PhD in electroacoustic composition from City University London and currently holds a lectureship at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna.
