this edition of framework:afield, entitled loops, phases, repetitions, has been produced in the uk by regular contributor keith de mendonca.

producer’s notes:

Some of these recordings were made before 2020 and have been used again in this show. Other recordings were made at the start of 2020 around the world in ever decreasing circles as the Corona virus took hold and travel steadily reduced and finally ceased. Many of the recordings made in 2020 are related to the demonstrations and marches that have taken place in London this year. Some recordings have been treated as phased loops to reinforce the repetition of the words or sounds. Other recordings are of machines and circular movements.

  1. amazing how a sound from the past can evoke memories. I’ve been in Cork 15 years ago during summer for a college break for a couple of months and hearing the echo seller triggered much of the memories. That’s what I call a unique sound tied down to a specific place. Thank you for that trip back to 2005.
