492[powerpress]this edition of framework:afield has been produced in france by stéphane marin, who is also featured on our upcoming edition of framework:seasonal, issue #7, to be officially released on the winter solstice this coming sunday. it’s giving time folks! go to the framework website and donate 20€ or more today to reserve your copy:

after a one month trip in burma stéphane marin (aka espaces sonores) publishes 28 sound postcards weekly on soundcloud. a binaural travel notebook from the country of the golden pagoda: l’oreille nomade #1 – myanmar.

the soundscape of this country so long closed to the world and so preserved from occidental influences can not much longer resist the acoustic pressures of the general homogenization of sonic globalization. these phonographs are in a manner testimonies to this mutating country now asking for the worldwide model. now for framework, stéphane marin brings us 55 more minutes of sounds, forgotten, evicted or set aside during the original creation.

all these recordings were made with binaural microphones: headphone listening is highly recoommened.
