Station Rose/STR was founded in Vienna, Austria, in 1988 by Gary Danner (sound) and Elisa Rose (visuals). As one of the first digital groups worldwide Station Rose have used the potential of live audio visual media and the internet for performing in their work. Their Gunafa Clubbings were the first AV- and online club projects worldwide (Frankfurt 1992). STR are online since 1991 and are regarded as pioneers of Digital Culture.
At reaching their Digital Quarter Century in 2013 they focus on „New Media Arte Povera“ and „Urban Land Art“, adding recycling and haptic objects to their installations. Sound meets wood and text, uses reliable structures like Techno, Psychedelic and Minimal Music; the ancien régime of hitech DAWs has been challenged by field recordings and lo-res apps.
Station Rose received the Prix Ars Electronica (Honorary Mention) 1995, Staatsstipendium Ministry of Arts Austria 2008, City of Linz Lifetime Award 2012 for their artistic work.
