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.

Bogusław Schaeffer Proietto for prepared tape and tuba (1975) and Michał Talma Sutt Cellotronicum for cello and computer (2002) - two pieces from the middle period and this decade of Polish Radio Experimental Studio will be reinterpreted by DJ Lenar.

Piece by Bogusław Schaeffer had been played in the past by different musicians on different instruments, among others on: oboe, English horn, bass clarinet, bassoon, double bass, alto saxophone.

Piece by Michał Talma-Sutt belongs to the broad project of polish cellist Andrzej Bauer (started in 2002 during Warsaw Autumn Festival), named (from the title of that piece) Cellotronicum. Other pieces for that project (until now) were composed by Jacek Grudzień, Marcin Wierzbicki, Sławomir Kupczak, Paweł Mykietyn, Stanisław Krupowicz, Magdalena Długosz and Cezary Duchnowski.

Concert is organized in the small club “Chłodna 25” (close to the very centre of Warsaw), where (from time to time) people can listen to improvised music. The name of the club is the same as the address of that place in Warsaw.

Safe’N’Sound from Polish Radio Experimental Studio and Club Chłodna 25

Kept safely for ages in the archives of Polish Radio, classical recordings of polish musique concrete composers will be reinterpreted by the leading figure of polish turntablism, DJ Lenar. Polish Experimental Studio – established in 1957 – was among the first institutions in the world to promote musical activities on the edges of modern composition, technological heyday and experimental attitude. Activities of composers such as Włodzimierz Kotoński, Andrzej Dobrowolski, Bogusław Schaeffer, Eugeniusz Rudnik, Bohdan Mazurek, Krzysztof Penderecki Tomasz Sikorski were parallel to the ones by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Schaeffer, Bruno Maderno or Mauricio Kagel. Pieces by polish composers from the Polish Experimental Studio will be a starting point of DJ Lenar’s tribute to this tradition as well as tradition of turntablism, plunderphonics and hip-hop extended techniques; not as a historical document but rather a source of fascination for younger generation of musicians, they will be set free after 50 years!

DJ Lenar
The most inventive of Polish turntablists, DJ Lenar has been working in variety of genres and aestheticareas - from klezmer bands like Meritum to Witold Lutosławski tribute with classical cellist Andrzej Bauer, from Irish folk songs arranged for duo with Garth Knox, theatre music to improvising on stage with John Tilbury, Eddie Prevost, Erik M., Frederic Blondy, Thomas Lehn, Noel Akchote and many others. DJ Lenar is an active figure in promoting turntablism in Poland, curating series of events such as Deckonstrukcja, Galimadjazz and Sofa. He has been performing in festivals such as Blurring the Edges in Hamburg, Musica Genera in Szczecin, Musica Polonica Nova in Wrocław, Turning Sounds, plain. music in Warsaw.
