e-scape est une initiative du groupe Ars Acustica de lâ€™Union EuropĂ©enne de Radiodiffusion (UER), prĂ©sidĂ© par Erik-Mikael Karlsson. Il sâ€™agit de promouvoir le renouvellement du paysage sonore, genre artistique dont la radiodiffusion est le vecteur privilĂ©giĂ©, et dont de nombreuses radios europĂ©ennes sont pionniĂ¨res. e-scape propose de revisiter lâ€™environnement sonore de nos villes, campagnes ou maisons dans un contexte actuel qui permet aux jeunes crĂ©ateurs de radio et dâ€™art sonore dâ€™exploiter les nouvelles techniques numĂ©riques et interactives pour dĂ©peindre notre quotidien dans des formes dâ€™expression novatrices. e-scape est appelĂ© Ă se dĂ©cliner comme une sĂ©rie dâ€™Ă©vĂ©nements radiophoniques paneuropĂ©ens soutenus par lâ€™UER, qui met Ă disposition son rĂ©seau satellite, et que Radiophonic 2007 inaugure Ă lâ€™initiative dâ€™AndrĂ© Defossez (Musiq 3, RTBF).

EBU ARS ACUSTICA / ART’S BIRTHDAY PARTY 2007 – Antwerp.
“Ancient life was all silence. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of the machine, Noise was born. ”
words by Luigi Rusollo.
Can we make a same statement for radio ?
What if radio wasn’t invented 100 years ago ?
RADIO-NO-RADIO try’s to find answers, listen therefore to the silences between today’s radio stations.
We hear randomized long-, middle-, shortwave and fm silence samples on a interactive 16 channel speaker installation.
From 13.00 these radio silences sound in the public library DE DRIEHOEK Antwerp / Ekeren until it closes at 20.00 . Continuing we organize an ART’S BIRTHDAY party from 20.00 to 24.00
4 musicians and 1 actor improvise in the RADIO-NO-RADIO soundscape. The public is free to walk around. This performance becomes part of the EBU ARS ACUSTICA event ART’S BIRTHDAY 2007.

100 YEARS OF RADIO â€“ The Return of Wireless Imagination
Wednesday, January 17, 2007 – Kunstradio’s Art’s Birthday Party 2007
ORF Kulturcafe, Argentinierstrasse 30a, 1040 Vienna
8 p.m. â€“ open end, FREE ENTRY
contributors on site:
11 p.m. – 2 a.m., Ă–1 (FM 92.0, MW 1476, SW)
Follow the party on line at:
With regards to the fact that the first radio â€śshowâ€ť mixing music and spoken word was successfully broadcast 100 years ago, Kunstradio wants to commemorate this exciting moment of radioâ€™s history; luckily Radioâ€™s birthday more or less coincides with that of Art :-), so weâ€™ll not only be celebrating 1,000,044 years of art, but also 100 years of radio; Ă–1 which was established 40 years ago as the cultural channel of Austrian National Radio, and last but not least Ă–1 Kunstradioâ€™s 20th anniversary are two more great occasions to celebrate!
The best of all reasons for a very promising party!
And very promising is the line-up of contributors, too!
In the spirit of the first radio show, the bits and bobs of the performances will focus on spoken word, music, and â€śfirstsâ€ť in radio from around the world. While the evenings â€śnarratorâ€ť Friedrich Tietjen will present the stunning story of radio, and how practices in the mediumâ€™s use have changed over the past 100 years, served as short, but compact bites of the storyline, Volkmar Klien will listen into the audio-streams from the thriving birthday parties around the globe, and give the guests a personally composed impression of whatâ€™s going on out there, mixed with samples of memorable radio moments.
Young writers from Viennaâ€™s literature scene, from poetry slammers to spoken word artists, will comment on and work with radio from their point of views, as well as we are awaiting a remote birthday present in form of an especially made video from Felix Kubin, label boss of gagarin.records, radio artist and musician / performer. The combo GipsyRadio will interlink between the narratives, picking up the different modes and moods, and interpreting these in their specific musical language.
With the grande dame of media, Radio, turning 100, all her friends and contemporaries are long dead. Thus, Tonic Train are performing a special birthday concert: â€śDinner for Twoâ€ś addresses a new generation of transistors gathered at the Kulturcafe to listen to the old stories of Radio when it still was a medium that still used to hiss, click, and pipe broadcast via four microtransmitters.
What else is to mention? Several layers of the party will be broadcast on 4 special channels via microtransmitters on site, so bring your radio receiver to get your individual mix!
Ars Acustica is a group of producers and editors of radio art programs in national-public broadcasting corporations in Europe. Founded in 1989 within the European Broadcasting Union EBU, the Ars Acustica group aims at initiating and realising projects, promoting radio art, exchanging productions between European radios, and eventually open up a space for debate on the future of radio, of art and of radio art as such.
Recent Ars Acustica projects include the annual Artâ€™s Birthday celebration on 17th January and a series of live concerts/radio performances on varying locations, as well as the publication of a double CD to mark the 20th anniversary of the groupâ€™s existence. The CD â€ś20 years Ars Acusticaâ€ť includes pieces that were submitted in an internal competition, chosen by the jury (Czech Radio), Erik Mikael Karlsson (Swedish Radio) as well as Elisabeth Zimmermann (ORF Kunstradio).
The chosen pieces are by the following artists: Alessandro Bosetti, Escoitar.org (Juan-Gil LĂłpez & Chiu Longina), Arsenije Jovanovic, Els Viaene, TomĂˇs PĂˇlka, Sofia Kamayianni, JosĂ© Iges & Concha Jerez, Hanna Hartman, Miguel Azguime, Dmitriy Nikolaev, Stefano Giannotti, Anton Bruhin, Juraj Duris and ProTon Sonic Art (Agnieszka WaligĂłrska & Pekka SirĂ©n).
