yannick dauby, 蛙界蒙薰 (Wā Jiè Méng Xūn)greetings fair listeners! we are very happy to be back from our annual break, diving again into the piles of sounds building up in the framework studios, making new plans, planning new shows, warming our ears by the fall fires. lots of things to tell you about – we’ll try to stagger our excitement so we don’t hit you with it all at once.
first, this very week we are welcoming our newest broadcaster to the framework family! concertzender, in amsterdam, has joined the framework fold, and we are very happy to be a part of their broadcast schedule. they will be airing two shows each week, from 5am to 7am each monday morning, so you can start your week right. check out their great programming, and particularly the link to our program group crosslinks, here.
then, of course, after many delays, framework:seasonal issue #5, summer 2013, the spectacular collection of location recordings by east midlands tape recording clubs made in the ’60s and ’70s, curated by mark vernon, began shipping just as we went on break. if you haven’t picked one up yet, do it now! you won’t regret it, this is an amazing listen, and you get to support framework radio to boot. meanwhile, behind the secret curtain, we are now working on the details for issue #6, due out this autumn, another great compilation featuring a collection of new and familiar names. more details on that in the coming weeks!
also, we have finally begun working on a new project, inspired by our good friends at the aporee soundmaps. as you know, each regular edition begins with a listener recorded introduction. we’ve been doing this for years, and so now have a collection of hundreds of framework intros recorded all over the world in many different languages, and we’ve been wondering what to do with this treasure trove. well, we’re now working on an intro map, where you can browse the globe and listen to the intros situated at the sites where they were recorded. we’re just beginning; we’ve only got 2 intros up there so far, but if you’d like a sneak peak, it’s here.
of course, we need your help with this. if you have ever recorded a framework introduction, we’d love to hear from you with the following info:
1) date and time of your recording (if known)
2) exact location of your recordings (with GPS coordinates if possible)
it will be a slow process, but we hope to eventually get them all up there.
but on to the show – this one features some recent favorites: yannick dauby‘s duets for frogs and synthesizer, sala‘s exploration of my own adopted region, chris watson‘s time-induced sound portrait, ian m. rawes‘ digging into the dark corners of london, and kim walker‘s time at the seaside, all begun with a framework introduction recorded for us by our most prolific intro recorder ever – good luck compiling all those GPS coordinates for me, martin! – martin clarke.
