Flattr this!

this week’s framework:afield has been produced in the uk by felicity ford, and is a collection of thoughts and recordings exploring the idea of documenting sound art events. It features recordings created in summer, 2011 at the tuned city tallinn festival during the framework radio documentation and production workshop, which was run jointly by felicity and valeria merlini, and also recordings made by felicity at the audiograft festival in oxford in 2011. this is the first of a 2-part series exploring sonic documentation; the next edition has been jointly produced by felicity and valeria, and will feature recordings from this year’s audiograft festival. It’s hoped that this first show will set the scene for some of the documentary tactics which the pair have been developing in their work together over the past year.

    I enjoyed the programme. I think Felicity Ford is very good at discussing worthwhile, complicated questions in everyday language. this is good because it allows one to understand the question well enough to think about it oneself. thanks!
