this edition of framework:afield, entitled COVID dreamscapes, has been produced the the united states by regular contributor john f. barber. producer’s notes:
COVID Dreamscapes is a sonic narrative of dreams prompted by the COVID-19 (COrona, VIrus, Disease) pandemic (pan = all, demic = people). COVID dreams are widely reported as strange, intense, colorful, and vivid reflections of concerns and fears over contagion, loneliness, loss of control, stress over work and/or life. Medical researchers offer interpretations about meanings. Websites provide opportunities to share and even visualize COVID dreams.
COVID Dreamscapes uses field recordings and found sounds to portray spiraling sonic mashups both real and imagined associated with my personal COVID dreams. While different from what other people are hearing in their COVID dreams these dreamscapes may prompt thoughts about this unique overlay of sound in our lives.john f. barber, 2020.12
