this edition of framework:afield has been produced in the united states by john f. barber. for more information see his page for this program at http://www.nouspace.net/john/sound/pulsations.html, or his personal website at http://www.nouspace.net/john. some words from the artist:

Ambient Pulsations explores a universe of pulsating sounds, all without apparent physical sources or attributes of materiality. This inability to visualize sound sources promotes an acousmatic listening experience focused on the act of hearing. As a result, we take interest in sounds for their own merits, refining our listening through repeated listening, thus becoming more aware of our listening variations and subjectivity. This work imagines itself a narrative, but, what does it sound like to you?
