Ln (Cultural Uprising). When Roland Kuit was recording his string quartet with the FAMA Q in Prague, he met the artist Anja Kaufmann. Talking about the Prague scene of electronic and experimental music the idea for this broadcast was born.
The piece of experimental electronica wants to explore specific frequences and is divided in three parts:
1) Middle frequencies.
2) Manifesto Cultural Uprising by Mojmir Pukl.
3) Low frequencies.
The frequencies chosen are based on the Schumann resonance with its frequency of 7,83 Hz put into the human audible spectrum by octave steps. The second specific frequency is 432 Hz, which is said to be the natural frequency of the planet earth. This frequency got standardized to 440 Hz and serves as a general tuning standard for musical pitch. In remembrance of the cultural heritage of the avantgarde composer Erwin Schulhoff, notes of his 10 synkopierte Etüden Hot Music are also part of the composition.
Mojmír Pukl (1956) graduated in 1994 from the School of Architecture of Prof E Covered at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. Originally artistic and versatile, mostly, conceptual and action artist.

Anja Kaufmann aka Akita Yra. Electronic composer and artist Akita Yra expresses the definition of her observations and interests within sound systems. They find their forms in installations, software, compositions and live plays. Anja was born in Switzerland, where she studied New Media. Her works are concept based and investigates such notions as science phenomena, social studies and interdiscipline information architecture. She experiments with electronic soundscapes, noise and frequences interested in harmonies and subtle disharmonies. Digital ambient emerges out of collages of samples, recordings, which get processed life with effects. Living in Prague for 13 years she enjoys the exchange with other artists and is also a member of the audio art collective So21 in Radio Lora Zürich.
