well folks, it’s been a while, but framework fund-raising time is finally here again. and with it comes our newest edition of framework:seasonal! it’s been over a year’s wait – after a flurry of 2013 action we burnt ourselves out slightly and had to take a step back. but not we’re back at it, and ready to present another fantastic collection of new works from framework contributors! track notes, artist info, and images can all be found on the releases info page, which has just gone live: http://www.frameworkradio.net/seasonal/winter2014.
this issue comes with a hint of sadness though, as we remember our friend, long-time contributor and supporter, joe stevens, who passed away this summer. this issue features the last submission he sent to us, and is dedicated to his memory.
this is joe’s second appearance in the seasonal series, but the rest of the 13 artists here, as is our wont, are new to framework editions: pablo sanz, maria papadomanolaki, stéphane marin, una lee, jeremy hegge, masayuki imanishi, nichola scrutton, grant finlay, howard stelzer, kate carr, marc namblard, and ingenting kollektiva (who, believe it or not, we used to work with at a cinema in massachusetts when we were teenagers).
so half those tracks are featured in this edition, and the rest will be featured in the next regular edition, our last before our holiday break, on december 21st. and the message? SUPPORT FRAMEWORK! we can’t do it without you, and we’ve made this beautiful thing to give you to say thanks, so go NOW and give a little gift to keep us on the air. better yet, become a SUBSCRIBER – you can sign up to make a regular MONTHLY contribution of anything from 50€ down to 1€ – 1€ per month! don’t make me say ‘for the price of a cup of coffee’, but if every framework listener would give 1€ per month we could very simply stop asking, and you would never have to hear us beg again. wouldn’t that be nice? we think so.
so GO. and GIVE. big golden paypal buttons on the right.
a minimum donation of 20€, OR a monthly subscription of at least 5€, gets you one of the first copies of framework:seasonal issue #7, winter 2014 as they come off the presses on december 21st.
