christopher mcfall, disengaged songs for disenchanted loverswe featured not one, but two christopher mcfall releases in this edition, both of which have been waiting patiently in our to-play pile for quite some time – one solo, and one a collaborative release on the always-intriguing unfathomless label with italian artist luigi turra. also waiting patiently (in fact, so long that we are slightly embarrassed) has been matt davies‘ self-released collection of latvian plant recordings, all untreated and unmanipulated. we also heard sounds from the yugen art net label by norwegian artist terje paulsen, a soundwalk by jerusalem-based artist lior pinsky, and another collection of recent uploads to the aporee soundmaps in our continuing aporee segment series. all this began with a framework intro recorded for us in spain by pedro bericat, purveryor of mute sound records.
this is the last regular edition before the sound diaries symposium in the uk – we will be presenting framework in the context of the symposium’s theme: how are we using field recordings to change the world? well, we’ll see about that, and we hope you will too; if you’re nearby, please come to oxford, join the symposium, and say hello! places are free, but must be reserved in advance. all the details here: http://www.sound-diaries.co.uk/symposium-2013.
