framework editions is proud to announce it’s latest release, framework500, produced in celebration of our 500th(!) edition, which premiered on sunday, febraury 22nd, 2015.
to celebrate this important moment in our history, we are publishing this new 3-disc compilation. we invited the artists who participated in our release, framework250, to return with a new work. we are proud to present those works here, slow burnt onto the highest quality CDRs, and housed in a beautiful origami sleeve made from locally produced recycled stock from the räpina paberivabrik and letterpressed on the historical machines at the studio.tartuensis.
what’s more, we have the amazing opportunity to be present for both the production of our very own paper stock, and its printing, and will thusly be able to include on the release recordings of both of these processes. so you can hold framework500 in your hand while you listen to the sounds of the paper you are touching being made and the words you are reading being printed. many, many thanks to mihkel peedimaa and lemmit kaplinski for making this possible. we are very proud to be able to produce this object with local materials in collaboration with local artisans.
framework500 is available to framework supporters in exchange for a minimum donation of 40€, via the donations bar on the right. framework is a 100% volunteer effort, and we rely on listener support to be able to continue. please support your favorite radio show today!
the release is still in production (shipping, we estimate, by the end of march), but we are taking pre-orders now. we are also offering a special early adopters thank you pack with the first 50 orders, including many extra treats provided by our participating artists:
- a framework500 badge handmade by felicity ford in reading, uk
- framework500 stickers letterpressed by ben owen in new york, us
- an unique drawing by maria balabas, bucharest, ro
- a special postcard corroded by jim haynes in san francisco, us
- an individual handwritten thank you note from patrick mcginley, põlgaste, ee
- an extra-special mention on the framework website
- more additions to come!
of course this project would not have been possible without the participation and good will of all the artists. many thanks to them, once again, for making it happen. for artist and track details, click here.
