Ars Acustica Group(http://www.ebu.ch/en/radio/euroradio_classics/arsacustica/artsbirthday.php)
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 (http://artsbirthday.net) 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.

SAFE NOT SAFE
( Antwerp - Ward Weis )
MUHKA (Museum for contemporary art of Antwerp) hosts the ART'S BIRTHDAY PARTY this year.
Students SOUNDDESIGN of the Royal Academy for fine arts of Antwerp create a sonic environment with sounds they have catalogued as SAVE and NOT SAVE. They are randomised through a multi-speaker installation in which a monotone voice reads their description as a slow soft litany.
A multi-monitor version of The virtual listening project" by Floris Van Manen will be projected on the white walls of the museum.
