this edition of framework:afield, entitled earscape: time has been produced in germany by regular contributor d.l. lutz, a practising architect, writer and sound artist living in berlin. from the producer:

Earscape „Time“

Time is a strange phenomenon – it can be measured to the nanosecond, and yet its experienced length is variable like the length of a chewing gum; time is inscribed in our senses so deeply that we cannot imagine timelessness, and yet in some extreme physical situations it is completely meaningless. So how can aspects of time be expressed with sound?

This earscape tries to find an acoustical expression for some associations with time and uses various works: minimalist music, field recordings, pieces that stretch, compress and phase time like Brian Eno’s reworkings of Pachelbel concerts, and as keystone compositions the great revised Chronostasis suite by Andreas Bick who attempted to create a sonic memorial for all (soon to be extinct!) mechanical chronometers.
