#788: 2022.02.13 [CENSE]

this is the first edition of an ongoing collaboration between framework radio and CENSE – the central european network for sonic ecologies (https://cense.earth/). the series is titled symptoms of evidence; each new episode is produced for CENSE by polina khatsenka and petra kapš, and premieres on radio punctum in prague, before being repeated a few months later here on framework. our thanks go to radio punctum for their permission to rebroadcast these shows.

Symptoms of Evidence mixtape series is focused on bringing the field of acoustic ecology closer to the local listeners and interested individuals, introducing field-recordings as a sonic tool for examining our sound environment and enabling us to gain a deeper knowledge on the consequences of environmental processes, together with possible solutions retrieval. further info on the network can be found on the webpage https://cense.earth/.

several IRL, paper and plastic, dropped off by a real live postman submissions in this show, newly arrived, although not entirely newly released; sonic rubbish (tarab’s in house imprint), rekem (a label run by old friend nicolas malevitsis), and sofa (who sent a handful of their releases last year, including that great one we played in edition #729 by vilde&inga) all released shiny discs that we made spin round really fast in this edition, alongside a few great new virtual releases for good measure (one released by the good people at flaming pines, then other self-released by our good friend manja ristić), all, genuinely all, streamable and buyable on bandcamp. also, the return of our aporee soundmaps segment (which we frankly just forgot to include last regular edition) and a framework introduction recorded for us in the united states by paul dickinson.

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by nils mosh. for more of his work see https://soundofessen.com/. producer’s notes:

Comissioned by the Emschergenossenschaft U was exploring the soundscape of the Emscher River and making its conversion audible – from an open wastewater channel to a renaturalized and diversely revitalized watercourse. As of the end of 2021 the Emscher is officialy free of sewage, so my recordings of the dirt water are the last audio document of 100+ year history of the dirtiest river of Germany. In my two minute collage on Youtube (https://youtu.be/QNll4Ps8sJU) you can listen to a comparison between the dirty and the clean Emscher. In this radio program you can listen to some of the sounds in detail, hear sounds from my recordings along the 80km long river, that didn’t make it into the original collage and get more information on the river, background stories from the recordings and insights on my approach to listen to the now most expensive river of Germany.

i love it when i discover that artists whose work i love know one another and are working together, as has happened with my discovery of yen-ting hsu’s collaborative recording documents with yannick dauby – 2 volumes of recordings from chiayi in southern taiwan. we’re exploring vol.1 in this edition, and we’ll come back for vol.2 some time in the coming months.

we’re also listening to some fine minimal textures on a new self-release by willem sannen, a short work on cronica electronica by miguel a. garcia, an unreleased work which can be heard on soundcloud by mathias guilbaud, a gem in the prolific output of canadian label empreintes digitals by roxanne turcotte (is anyone else reminded of totoro’s flute playing at the debut of her track les oiseaux de nias?), an audio portrait of the river in the hometown, the charles, by ana laura malmaceda, and a nice old-time mountain music intro recorded for us in athens, alabama (yes, there’s one there too) by ben link collins.

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.
With this edition of my favorite things, it is my pleasure to showcase sound artists from Medellin, Colombia.

happy new year! we’ve had a refreshing few weeks off, but we’re back now with a full schedule of new material, guest producers, and plans for 2022. we’re getting off to a running start with our first show back, which began with a healthy dose of skepticism by a perhaps unwilling listener, before moving us through sounds from the uk, france, norway, the us, greece and saudi arabia.
