we’ve just finished up the tuned city festival here in tallinn, an amazing week with amazing weather, amazing people, and amazing sounds. highlights included ici-meme‘s city sounds concerts (personal blind walks through tallinn), thomas ankersmit‘s site specific saxophone performances is some of tallinn’s most interesting acoustic spaces, and of course charlemagne palestine‘s organ performance in niguliste church. we invited felicity ford, a regular framework contributor, to come and lead the framework radio: documentation and production workshop, which produced daily ‘reports’ of the previous days activities for diffusion at our conference series, and will now work towards producing one (or maybe more) editions of framework:afield for broadcast in the fall. a great big thank you to all the artists, speakers, and volunteers who came out and made this festival happen. tallinn has been, and remains, a very resonant place.

a largely untreated collection of sounds this week, including jesse paul miller’s experiments with radios around southeast asia, which he describes thusly: “hand held portable shortwave radio recorded may-october 2008 on location in java/ bali/lombok (indonesia), myanmar, thailand, and japan. direct transmissions were played live in the environment with the cheap little device. also, direct recordings of bizarre radio transmissions picked up with the radio. assembled into a single composition, for your boom-box.” this joined thomas tilly‘s exquisite collection of hydrophone recordings from france, thomas park‘s collage of gutter and rain sounds from saint louis, guillaume beauron‘s collection of field recordings from his travels, and john grzinich‘s textural compositions.
