this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by regular contributor d. l. lutz. his notes:

Earscape „Broadcast“

Just imagine yourself being a seaman on a large containership, in the middle of nowhere on the Pacific Ocean at night. The sky is brightly lit with stars; you are tired and lonely, and you cannot sleep. So you move over to your world receiver radio and switch through the channels, hoping to find signs of life and human activities. You detect traces everywhere, but not all of them are identifiable or understandable. Are messages or noises dominant? What language is spoken? What topic is concerned? Well, you think, in any case this is a little bit of solace…

This earscape uses parts of experimental compositions that are stitching together findings of all kinds; it is a free flow of snippets from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake to church services. And in the middle of things you might hear Pauline Oliveros talk about modes of listening…

D. L. Lutz, born 1969 in Germany, is a practicing architect, writer and sound artist living in Berlin for 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.
