as you all know, because i keep harping on about it, framework began broadcasting over 10 years ago. it began in a small studio above a music shop on denmark street in central london, at the london musicians collective’s newly formed radio station, resonance 104.4fm. we at framework had very little idea what we were doing, and no idea how long we’d be doing it for, but there we were. now, 10 years later, thanks to the efforts of the lmc, framework has clocked hundreds of hours of broadcasting, airs on radio stations around the world, has been heard by thousands and thousands of people, and is still going strong (although with slightly more lower back pain). but why am i pointing this all out once again?
because, folks, this week is resonance 104.4fm’s annual fundraiser. i know you’re used to hearing me beg for money to fill my own greedy little coffers, but you don’t often here me begging to fill someone else’s. but that’s what i’m doing: this week, please show your support for one of the world’s greatest radio stations. visit http://www.resonancefm.com and give, generously. visit the auction page and bid on all the amazing bits of paraphernalia they’ve got on offer (including a haunch of venison, an actual piece of the original wicker man, and even a full set of the framework:seasonal series). buy t-shirts. or just donate freely out of the goodness of your heart. keep resonancefm on the air!
and to show that our money is where our mouth is (mouths are?), here is our pledge: all donations to framework radio between now the end of the fundraiser on the 21st – nay, let’s even say until the broadcast of our next show on the 24th – will be split even-steven with resonance, a full 50%. so this week you can order copies of all your favorite framework:seasonal releases, knowing that a full €10 of each €20 donation will be passed on to resonancefm. what do you say to that?
this week brings us great, great sounds, with the continuation of our aporee maps segment, self-released sounds from finland and the uk, free online downloads from spain, woodpile-building worksongs from here in estonia, and 400Hz from the united states. these last come from jason sloan, who’s own explanation of his work, 400Hz will do it more justice than i could. he describes it as: “multiple layered binaural field recordings adjusted to 400Hz, the average constant frequency in the natural environment where the audio was captured, created at the wave farm in acra, new york during the first 20 minutes of each hour beginning at 12am until 6am on october 27, 2012.”
again, we are always looking for new material, whether raw field recordings, field recording based composition, or introduction submissions. we are also now accepting proposals for full editions of our guest curated framework:afield series. send proposals or material, released or not, on any format, to the address at the bottom of this mail. if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
