our 2012 season is now fully up and running, and we have several calls to make. first of all, we’re now accepting proposals for new editions of framework:afield: if you have an idea for your own hour of field recording themed radio, get in touch! we’re also now taking submissions for the spring 2012 edition (and future editions as well) of our framework seasonal fundraising compilation series: if you have an exclusive piece you would consider contributing to the series let us know! and of course, we are constantly accepting submissions of material for our regular editions, and constantly in need of framework introductions. intros are easy to record and we need new ones all the time – please join in the fun and record one for us!
and of course, we are always accepting donations – it says it above, but it’s often overlooked: PLEASE, if you appreciate the program and the outlet it provides for all this great work to be heard, consider donating to framework, either with a one-time gift, or a regular monthly contribution. the show is heard by hundreds, if not thousands, of people all over the world, but only a handful have agreed to make regular donations to help keep us broadcasting. you can contribute as little as 1€ per month, every little bit helps! if all our listeners would do that we would never have to waste playlist space on begging again. so donate 1€, or 5€, or 10€ or 100€ a month, or make a one-time donation of an amount of your choice, and for a minimum amount get a copy of the great 1st edition of the framework seasonal compilation series, or snap up one of the last copies of the framework250 4cdr compilation – you’ll find the donation bar on the right hand side, and more info on all the available compilations in the menu.
this edition features a great mix of physical and online works, released and unreleased, from the likes of dallas simpson, the great british binaural sound spatial improviser; david velez, columbian-born new york-based phonographic collager, released on the great and extremely limited belgian mystery sea label; another release from ben owen‘s always beautifully packaged winds measure label, featuring a live performance by several artists in the context of a new york city phonography meeting; and a free downloadable release by uk artist chris whitehead. this began with a framework introduction i recorded myself, at the cantillon brewery in brussels; the sound of fermentation itself, one of life’s great pleasures.
