    HORIZONTAL RADIO was a telematic radio network project, that took place simultaneously at different locations, in different media and on different frequencies and band-widths. The starting point was the analogue cable and broadcasting network of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union), which served as a primary telematic sphere of action and was connected in several cases to independent radiostations or interfered with by pirate radio. Linked to this network was the Internet, which served as a medium of access and distribution beyond the broadcasting range of the participating radio stations but also in some aspects as a possibility to influence the broadcasts.

    A co-production between the Ars Acustica experts group of the EBU (European Broadcasting Union) and TRANSIT KUNSTRADIO (Austrian National Broadcasting Corp.) and the Ars Electronica Fesfival’95.
