On 18 July 2021* members of Heya Collective simultaneously live streamed for 1 hour, from Turkey, UK, Lebanon and Egypt, the sounds of their immediate surroundings in response to the call out for World Listening Day 2021 (link: https://www.worldlisteningproject.org/world-listening-day-2021-the-unquiet-earth/). It emerged for us as time to come together apart, listening to the audible and contemplating the positioning of the callout and our experiences of the pandemic, as female field recordists, our relationship to one another and to the environment. The end result was not quiet, let alone ‘beyond the threshold of human hearing’, but an interpersonal and interspecies dialogue (often precisely because of the absence of each other and of other species’ audibility in those moments) of dispersed but connected ‘noisy’ realities.Read more
this edition of framework:afield, entitled women in the field, has been produced in the uk by jilliene sellner. producer’s notes: “Women in the Field is a brief exploration of the experience of females who practice field recording. I’m certain there is much more to be said on the subject particularly from those outside of Europe and North America, who do not identify as cis and/or identify as a person of colour and so on than the contents of this episode. This is just a starting point. I am extremely grateful for the contributions from the artists.” […]Read more
this edition has been produced in the uk by jilliene sellner. producer’s notes: This episode brings together female phonographers born and working outside of Europe and North America. Many of these sound artists are also academics, educators, visual artists and podcasters. Their compositions shaped and molded, sometimes tenderly, here and there justly enraged, represent alternative orientations and perspectives. […]Read more
old and new(er) friends in this weeks edition – i first met both howard stelzer and jeff surak back in the early 00’s, while jilliene sellner (who put together the harbour me release) has been a regular contributor over these last few years, and anna xambó (who put me on to the dirty dialogues release) first got in touch a few weeks ago. their sounds sound like old friends, though; we hope you’ll enjoy listening to this mix as much as we enjoyed making it.

this is an all-woman iwd show with an intentionally global focus.
the concept, mixing and mastering of this show were shared by long-term framework radio contributors, jilliene sellner, and felicity (felix) ford, both currently based in the uk. stitched together from their respective collections of soundart, field recordings and phonography by women from around the world, this mix explores how womanhood intersects with other identities such as race, ethnicity and disability in womens’ creative sonic praxis. a range of different concerns are reflected, from preoccupation with climate-change, to the importance of decolonising listening space.
most of the artists featured here also have a presence on bandcamp, where you can directly support them. each artist featured is making vital contributions to the fields of soundart, phonography and field-recording and we highly recommend that you check out their work via the links below.Read more

this edition of framework:afield, entitled soundings, has been produced in switzerland by jason kahn. for more of his work see https://jasonkahn.net/. producer’s notes:
The radio piece Soundings is an adaption of the book of the same name, which is a collection of 77 texts and field recordings, with each text being written in reaction to one of the recordings on the accompanying CD.
The idea here is to think about how sounds in our everyday lives trigger certain memories or images. And to explore this through the writing of these texts as a kind of field recording of our thoughts and sensations in relation to hearing these sounds again in their recorded form, frozen in time and disassociated from their original source.Read more
our first regular edition from inside the quarantine – this week we featured a handful of recordings from the aporee soundmaps documenting the unusual reality we are all now living in, from a sonic perspective. giuseppe gavazza has been documenting the soundscapes during the lockdown in a series of recordings made in turin in northern italy. here we listen to recordings from his terrace, in this usually busy city, at sunrise (at the top of the show) and sunset (at the bottom). also, the calm of one of brussels’ usually busy tourist destinations by flavien gillié. we’ll keep our eyes on the maps for more recordings of interest to our current situation, and continue featuring them in the show.

july 18th was world listening day – in this edition we listen to a few of the recordings uploaded to the aporee soundmaps WLD2019 project, and we hear an introduction recorded on that day as well. meanwhile we finally had a chance to check out david rothenberg’s 2-disc release on gruenrekorder, nightingale cities, featuring his signature improvisations with wildlife – this time, as you might have guessed, with nightingales, in berlin and helsinki. we also heard a sample from absolute value of noise’s outdoor solar powered generative radio station, which “tries to recreate the sounds of life in its immediate environment – imitating the sounds of insects, birds, frogs, magnetic phenomena, the wind moving through the trees, rain falling, and waves on the ocean.” you can listen live (during canadian daylight hours) at the link below in the playlist. also some historical concrete composition by greek composer myrielle kyrou, a live performance recording by bana haffar, and a composition commissioned by this year’s radiophrenia festival by kate carr.Read more
