dear listeners,

I am always very inspired and happy to contribute to Framework afield. This time, I decided to offer a slightly unusual episode! The mix of conceptual, ambient, improv, and field recording works by some of the most incredible musical minds out there, a kind of alchemical soup in which I am searching for music within music.

This time I came up with a little experiment: juxtaposing a sound piece, “Kuda plovi ovaj brod? Where is this ship sailing”, with the magnificent works of others, by building an emotional palimpsest of moments and places in which all sound works were made, but most of all, by building a mutual content from the psychological material embedded in chosen works. It is a “soundtrack” for a sound piece, made around a very important topic – marine noise pollution and its effects on living systems in the South Adriatic’s littoral belt.

On top of that, I believe the brilliance of sound and music is hidden in all those emotional aspects that make us human. Love, joy, grief, despair, a constant search for knowledge and meaning; intimate existence far beyond quasi-intellectual aestheticisation and fake appropriations, as well as more radical deviations such as mutual hurt and destruction of others, beings, and environments.

Try to listen, as we are all submerged under the surface of the seas and rivers, trapped in the atrocious noise of the Anthropocene.
