we are just entering one of my favorite weeks, always a great celebration of coming spring, worldfilm fesitval week, tartu’s great festival of visual culture. probably a bit far for most framework listeners to travel too, but seriously, if you’re in estonia or nearby, consider spending a day or two here. festival passes are cheap, and anyway all films are free before 17:00:
this week we’ll be thinking of framework regular ernst karel, special guest for our contours of sound seminar during last year’s festival, and all the directors who also participated.
great sounds this week, including an exquisite collection of untreated recordings made in northern india by belgian artist peter caeldries; a beautiful composition from (to us) both a new artist and new label, hervé moire on aposiopése; the second disc of the three-artist collaboration between yannick dauby, john grzinich, and murmer (yes, that’s me); a lovely nighttime walk from mystified; and mountainous compositions by chris lynn. next week will begin a two-part framework:afield by regular contributors felicity ford and valeria merlini.
