#723: 2020.07.19 [lucio haeser]

My name is Lucio Haeser, I am from Brazil, and today we are going to take a soundwalk along the central streets of Porto Alegre, capital of Rio Grande do Sul, a state that is in the extreme south of the country.

Porto Alegre is the center of a metropolitan region with more than 4 million inhabitants. Here we hear traffic noise, street vendors and people talking. This recording was made on March 6, 2020, when Brazil had not yet realized the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic.

In Brazil, it is said that the year begins in March, right after the summer holidays in the southern hemisphere. The center of Porto Alegre was already noisier, when it really concentrated all business. But here we still have a good sound document of what the city is.

We started walking on Avenida Borges de Medeiros towards Rua da Praia, Voluntários da Pátria and Mercado Público.

#719: 2020.06.21 [keith de mendonca]

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

The coronavirus lockdown has changed the sense of space and place for many. Being confined somehwere, we start to listen and perceive differently, questioning ourselves and the space around us. Orientation gets a different meaning when we explore things from the inside out. This edition of framework:afield has been initially produced and presented in the context of the project “Grazer Soundscapes”, a community fieldrecording project run by Radio Helsinki in the city of Graz. Revised and reworked for framework, it weaves together fragmented musings about (acoustic-spatial) orientation with recordings from silent cities, quiet homes and other “isolated” spaces. Included are recordings from the Grazer Soundscapes project, soundpieces by Margarethe Maierhofer-Lischka and Lale Rodgarkia-Dara as well as sounds from the aporee soundmap.

#715: 2020.05.24 [d. l. lutz]

this edition of framework:afield, entitled, ‘earscape: freeze’, has been produced in berlin, germany by architect, writer, sound artist and regular contributor d. l. lutz. producer’s notes:

“It does not get any colder than this… The world has frozen over, and you are standing in the middle of this wilderness – minus forty degrees, and plenty of strange noises around. Ice produces some of the purest and most intriguing sounds, some of them do not sound natural at all.

“We start and end that show with improvisations on ice instruments by a Norwegian jazzer. In-between, you hear thermal cracks on frozen lakes, calving glaciers, breaking icebergs, falling slowflakes, the howling of wind in glacier crevices, and also a couple of frost-resisting animals like seals, seabirds and whales surfacing in the Antarctic. Enjoy the journey to the coldest regions of the earth!”

Coho Crossing is a sonic narrative about a crossing of the Strait of Juan de Fuca between Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, and Port Angeles, Washington, United States aboard the ferry Coho, named for the coho salmon found in the waters of the Pacific Northwest. John Barber created this composition from field recordings made aboard the Coho. In his introduction, Barber explains the sounds heard. In addition to contributing to framework, Barber manages Radio Nouspace (www.radionouspace.net), one of several global outlets for framework radio.

When experimental artist Mark Harwood was invited to perform a series of shows in Chile and Argentina in October 2019 it was by chance his arrival coincided with Chile’s largest uprising since the end of the dictatorship. This radio show attempts to explain what happened (is still happening) there via a vast array of diverse field recordings of the protests and casual conversation with new friends. […]

these are strange times, and none of us around the world really knows what the next few weeks/months will bring. but this is a time when these digital communities we have built over these last couple of decades really become valuable. and as many of us will all have lots of time at home in the near term, hopefully framework’s archives of over 700 hours of sounds from around the world can be of some comfort to our ears. this week, for example, while none of us can travel there, we can explore the beira serra region of portugal nonetheless. so now more than ever, open your ears and listen!

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by architect, writer, sound artist and regular contributor d.l. lutz: “This is heavy weather! You better wear your best outdoor gear – warm and windproof… All these recordings are about storms – and to capture the energy of air proves to be a difficult task, but there are great recordings, some of which I want to present to you. So I invite you to listen to window joints under air pressure, to staircases, creaking trees in forests, creaking sailing ships, to the howling songs in building scaffoldings, to flagpoles, lonely animals on unprotected meadows, slamming doors and the rude open sea… And I invite you to get lost in bad weather, while you comfortably sit in your armchair with a pot of hot tea.”
