this edition of framework:afield, entitled city,  has been produced in germany by d.l. lutz:

In field recording, much of the artist’s energy usually goes into isolating interesting sound sources. Here, in comparison, and according to the topic of the city phenomenon, I was conceptually intrigued by layering sounds until disorientation results. Is it not characteristic for the city that it visually and acoustically overwhelms the individual, and that the individual constantly tries to orient itself by filtering and excluding input?

Where am I? Who am I? Where did I want to go to, and what for? What does it have to do with me? Do I understand what I hear? Do the things I hear speak to me or not, do they stabilize my identity or rather erode it? – Starting point for that journey was a homage to Christophe Charles’ musical method of „undirected“ composing that I like very much; by putting pieces of his together, however, thematic tendencies happened to result. So this earscape is an expedition into the Global City of Japan, France, India, the Netherlands, the United States, Kenia, Denmark, Thailand, Canada, Great Britain, Germany and Italy. The piece presented here is a condensed version exclusively mixed for framework. Enjoy some chaos!

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!
