#702: 2020.02.23

sometimes i don’t know what to say – this week’s sounds are intense, an active, springy mix, maybe a reaction to the fact that winter never came this year (for us, here in estonia), or the fact that our house is currently full of family visitors and children’s birthday’s, or just because that’s how the cards fell. anyway, have a listen. we suspect (and hope) you won’t regret it.

#701: 2020.02.16 [d.l. lutz]

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by architect, writer, sound artist and regular contributor d.l. lutz: “This is heavy weather! You better wear your best outdoor gear – warm and windproof… All these recordings are about storms – and to capture the energy of air proves to be a difficult task, but there are great recordings, some of which I want to present to you. So I invite you to listen to window joints under air pressure, to staircases, creaking trees in forests, creaking sailing ships, to the howling songs in building scaffoldings, to flagpoles, lonely animals on unprotected meadows, slamming doors and the rude open sea… And I invite you to get lost in bad weather, while you comfortably sit in your armchair with a pot of hot tea.”

#697: 2020.01.19 [jilliene sellner]

this edition of framework:afield, entitled women in the field, has been produced in the uk by jilliene sellner. producer’s notes: “Women in the Field is a brief exploration of the experience of females who practice field recording. I’m certain there is much more to be said on the subject particularly from those outside of Europe and North America, who do not identify as cis and/or identify as a person of colour and so on than the contents of this episode. This is just a starting point. I am extremely grateful for the contributions from the artists.” […]

we’re back folks! thank you for bearing with me while i dealt with the passing of my father – it was a difficult and chaotic holiday season, but it’s time to get things moving again. this edition is dedicated to his memory, and features an introduction i recorded with him back in 2003, and also a recording of frogs he proudly made himself and set to me about a decade later. he will be greatly, greatly missed.
