this edition of framework:afield has been produced in canada by france jobin, as the 5th installment of her regular series, ‘my favorite things’. france says:
Bonjour, I am france jobin, better know as i8u. Welcome to “these are a few of my favorite things”.
As mentioned in earlier installments, my interpretation of field recording based works is very broad, however the thread I like to follow is to find artists who have mastered their unique identity through the music of sound.
The next 2 editions of ‘my favorite things’ will focus on a festival that has taken place in Winnipeg, Canada for the last 10 years. Winnipeg is basically in the middle of the Canada, a region commonly referred to as the prairies, it is vast and flat. Don’t be fooled, a Winnipeg audience is knowledgeable and discerning. I had the privilege to play twice at this festival and it remains at the top of my list! This is directly linked to the people I came in contact with while i was there. They are, Steve Bates, Jake Moore, Deanna Radford, Don Bargenda, and the festival is Send and Receive.
In the fall of 2009, S+R issued a dvd of the last 10 years, there is almost 11 hours of audio on it, what follows are excerpts of those live performances.
