andreas usenbenz, bell’s breath, klanggold (de) 2017
we’ve been doing a bit of traveling lately – our last regular edition was sent to you from narva, in northern estonia, and this one is sent to you from perruel-sur-andelle, in northern france. the movement has been making us slightly forgetful though, and as we forgot to mention one of the artists in our last regular edition, so we forgot to mention the producer(s) of this week’s beautiful framework introduction, regular contributor to our framework:afield series with his earscape programs, d.l. lutz, with his colleague solara shiha. he had this to say about their recording:
For [this intro], I engaged a friend of mine, being a female artist and architect from Syria living and working in Berlin. We are standing on a building site in Berlin – concrete walls and ceilings dripping from a nightly rainfall. The drops also fall on scaffolding, making this metallic „cling cling“.
this set the scene for the development of this week’s show, including the intimate instrumentation and site-specific recording of hokoco (a collaboration between hitoshi kojo, emmanuel holterbach, and etienne coussirat), the stunningly captured nature recordings of ivo vicic, the lush exploration of the bells of germany’s ulm minster cathedral by andreas usenbenz, and the latest slab of ultra-dynamic textures by yiorgis sakellariou.
