#653: 2018.09.16 [dmitry vasilyev]

our first show back after our annual summer break is a sad return to the airwaves, as while we were away we learned of the passing of our friend and colleague, dmitry vasilyev. dmitry was an organiser, podcaster, music and mushroom enthusiast, expert, curator of the monochrome vision record label, and author of the massive treatise on italian experimental music, viva italia. in this edition we pay tribute to dmitry with a mix of his monochrome vision releases, as well as a few tracks from the field-recording based the sound ecology: range compilation released some years back on his other label project, nitkie. dmitry has been steadily sending us the releases featured in this edition since our first meeting back in 2009, and to be honest, the massive, growing pile of amazing sounds to explore was so intimidating that we never managed to get most of them on the air. we’re devastated that this is what it took, but we’re very happy to finally be able to present this great label’s body of work.

this is it, folks, our last edition before our annual summer break! we’ll be back with edition #653 on september 16th, after a good long pause to recharge and refresh our ears (and spend some time in the lake – in the midst of an unusually hot estonian summer!). in the meantime, we think this show brings the season to a nice close, a more inward-looking mix or mostly untreated recordings.

#651: 2018.07.22 [france jobin]

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in canada by france jobin. after a six-year hiatus, this is the latest installment in her ongoing series these are a few of my favorite things. producer’s notes:

france jobin – my favorite things (Installment #10)

Bonjour, I am France Jobin, Welcome to these are a few of my favorite things.

As mentioned in earlier installments, my interpretation of field recording based works is very broad. however, the thread I like to follow is to find artists who have mastered their unique identity through the music of sound.

In the last 4 years, I have spent a lot of time in the Abruzzo region of Italy. With this edition of my favorite things, it is my pleasure to showcase the sound artists of this region.

#650! 2018.07.15

another landmark under the belt – they’re coming so hard and fast now we don’t know how to celebrate them anymore! i guess we’ll wait until #750 to do something proper.

very exciting to present the latest offering by longtime framework favorite jeph jerman this week, along with another recent release from the unfathomless label. also a new cassette by yiorgis sakellariou (i saw someone recently expressing surprise to learn that the shorthand K7 for cassette derives from the french, in which the letter ‘k’ is pronounced ‘ka’ and the number 7 is ‘sept’, pronounced ‘set’, hence ‘ka-set’. so if you also didn’t realise that: you’re welcome!). also an unreleased work by rafal fletjer, aka aRF, and a framework introduction recorded for us by sam roberts.

#648: 2018.07.01

two physical releases this week: the beautiful (both sounds and object) double-lp on fragment factory by jean-luc guionnet and thomas tilly (we’d like to hear how it relates to the cd release from a few years ago that partly shares its title), and a cassette release by a new artist to our airwaves, matthew atkins (this one is also available as a name-your-price download). andy graydon‘s release is a free download from the contour editions website, and yui onodera‘s work is a paid download from the dragon’s eye bandcamp page. and all the aporee sounds, of course, can be heard at https://aporee.org/maps.

#642: 2018.05.20

we had a pleasant week full of packages arriving at framework HQ – well, ok, only two, but that’s a lot these days. once upon a time we received three or four packages PER DAY with new submissions for the show, and while the submission rate hasn’t really dropped, 95% of them are online now, so we don’t get that nice it’s-christmas-everyday feeling anymore. i wouldn’t want to go back to those days, we wouldn’t have room to keep all those spinning things, but once in a while it’s still nice to hold objects in the hand, especially when they’re as attractive as these ones are. thanks philip sulidae and adrian dziewanski!
