this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by rinus van alebeek with adrian shephard and udo noll, founder of radio aporee:
This framework:afield special focuses on aporee/maps, the ongoing project by Udo Noll. Over the years the maps from aporee have become a popular platform for recorders around the world. Each day new sounds get added. But also from the side of Udo Noll new features get installed.
Radio On’s Adrian Shephard and Rinus van Alebeek interviewed Udo on the history, present and future of his maps, but also on his activities in his living room/studio aporee, like hosting topmodel.
Apart from the interview you will hear contributions by first hour collaborator Henrik Schröder. Frank Schulte, a regular contributor should be mentioned, Udo’s daughter Lola for her recording in Limburg.
Of course much more sounds were used. To credit every one is close to impossible, because in this special we also wanted to use and demonstrate the different possibilities of aporee maps: the virtual sound walks in Mexico City, in Montreal and in Cologne, a mix on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, a composition made up from several sounds around the world ( a must hear for vuvuzela lovers! ) and a hop jump mix of sounds from Japan.
Enjoy, And remember, next time you look at a map, you don’t think of who actually designed it, but where you would like to go.
A big thank you to everyone who has joined and will join the anonymous group of sound explorers.
