Summernightd. l. lutz, summernight

greetings, and welcome to the beginning of framework’s 2013 program! we’ve got lots planned for the coming year, which we’ll let you know about in the coming months, but just one new experiment to begin with: we’re trying out mixcloud as a new way to listen to the program, along with our usual posts to our facebook page and of course on the framework website. check our mixcloud page out here:

we’re not too familiar with it ourselves, so if you have any feedback, ideas, or recommendations, please let us know!

meanwhile, this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany d. l. lutz. a few words from the producer:

What does the world sound like late in the evening of a summer’s day when all the light has faded and life is already halfway obscured in dreams? This earscape tries to provide one possible answer, with the help of field recordings, compositions and improvisations.

What sound sources that you hear at night are recognizable? Is someone practising the piano in the distance? Is some fugitive criminal being chased somewhere out there? Do night-active animals stroll around your tent or is it the hard-working beavers at the nearby river? What do the few lonesome drivers on the dark highway think as they pass by? Why is someone fixing himself a coffee at this time? What memories of daytime adventures suddenly lighten up in the dark? Is it the wind or my soul that I hear? Can I trust my senses anymore? And above all, there is the deafening lullaby of the crickets…

D. L. Lutz, born 1969 in Germany, is a practising architect, writer and sound artist living in Berlin since over twenty years. His interests lie in science, ecology and all things related to music. He has produced a series of soundscapes on various topics, sound for films and a couple of symphonic readings.

again, we are always looking for new material, whether raw field recordings, field recording based composition, or introduction submissions. we are also now accepting proposals for full editions of our guest curated framework:afield series. send proposals or material, released or not, on any format, to the address at the bottom of this mail. if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
