this edition of framework:afield has been produced in the united states by thomas park, aka mystified. for more information see his website at http://www.mystifiedmusic.com.
notes from the producer:
I call these sounds a ‘Music Of Poverty’– that seems apt, given that they were recorded in my low-rent apartment in South Saint Louis many years ago, when I had little money– and more time to record. Taken individually or mixed, I feel these recordings convey some sense of place, and of lifestyle. They also capture quite literally some of the peculiar sounds I found at Brannon and Chippewa. Listen, and imagine you are alone in the city, and poor– with only the leaky pipes as your companion.
