i’m going to make a little plea here – i apologise if you find this irritating, and it possibly won’t help at all anyway, but i don’t know what else to do: patreon support for the program has been steadily dropping since may; we were at 77% of our initial goal, the minimum needed for framework to begin paying it’s own way, and we are now down to 62%. i’ve been producing the show for 17 years, in which time it has grown immensely and become a major eater or my time. i simply can’t afford to let framework fill 2 to 3 days per week if it can’t sustain itself. please don’t read this and think, here he goes again, always asking for money, why does he have to ruin the program with all this begging (i’ve received that exact feedback in the past); but, if you value the program, think perhaps that if you could see your way to helping support it, the begging could simply stop. if i can’t reach and maintain some minimum amount of support i will simply have to cut back on the amount of time i can volunteer to producing the show, reducing the quality of the output and the satisfaction i get from making it. please, if you can, help keep this from happening.
i think everything in this edition is available is available as a download, and some as physical releases as well – i guess we’re nearing the point where i don’t need to say that anymore, and soon enough it will be assumed that all releases are also available in virtual form. are we there already? mark vernon‘s latest work is the most format-specific here, released on cassette, and composed from the sounds of found cassettes corroded by sea and sand at an abandoned holiday resort. kayaka‘s virtual-only release, constructed from field recordings, harp, synth and spoken word, makes a good companion to mark’s rusty sounds, and sala‘s ‘natural’ drone from a lithuanian forest, contributed to the aporee soundmaps, provides a soothing contrast. also along for the ride are a few more of biodiversita‘s soundscapes, concrete compositions from sophie delafontaine, and a framework introduction recorded for us in sweden by longtime listener and contributor anders östberg.
