this edition winds up 2008 for us here at framework. so in this time of wind and snow (of constant grey drizzle, if you’re here in northern france) we’re sending you somewhere warmer. ruben garcia (spain) and slavek kwi (currently residing in ireland) have together produced this edition of framework:afield, featuring the mamori sound project, a regular residency/workshop program organised yearly by francisco lopez in the amazonian rain forest. there is, in fact, a group of artists there right now, including slavek himself, for the 2008 residency. these recordings were made during last year’s forays, and feature recordings, composition, insight and discussion with the participants and francisco.
we take a week off next sunday, the 28th, but we’ll be back with our first new edition of 2009 on january 4th. however, for those of you listening on radio zero, or via the website or podcast, we’ll be putting out an archive show to fill the gap week, a special holiday blast from the past.
have a great new year, see you in the new one!
