Ars Acustica Group


In 2009 the Ars Acustica (AA) group is joining the international Art's Birthday Parties already for the 5th time. This year the Ars Acustica is celebrating Art’s Birthday on January 16th - the evening before the birthday. Radio artists are involved by the members of the group to focus on the saying “Safe and Sound”. In a rapidly changing and increasingly unforeseeable world, safety has become a major concern on many levels of public and private life. The double meaning of the word sound as acoustic phenomenon and as synonym for good health points to the role of the aural sense and the voice as crucial devices of human self-perception.

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 ( 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.

About work

“Lullabies for the birds and Little Creatures” is a collage of works of two authors, Arsenije Jovanovic and Predrag Stamenkovic. The title of the program was taken from the name of the piece by Arsenije Jovanovic inspired to some extend on Orthodox Byzantine Chant Terirem, the Bogorodica Lullaby for the Little Christ (Mother of God Lullaby) and choir oratorio “Liturgy” by Serbian composer Mokranjac. Predrag Stamenkovic composed his piece upon an old Serbian folk lullaby so the whole Radio Belgrade program could be regarded as ars acoustica Lullaby for AB2009. Sleep well.
