framework editions was launched in 2010 to realise framework’s first fund-raising project, framework250, in honor of our 250th edition, which aired on the 20th of september, 2009. framework250 took form as 2 double-CDR compilations, 40 tracks contributed by 42 artists, over 5 hours of sounds, packaged in handmade silk-screened origami packaging constructed with local materials from here in southeast estonia. framework250 is now sold out.

with the success of framework250, we decided to continue releasing regular showcases of artists working in the field recording community, and began the framework:seasonal series in the autumn of 2011. with this series framework editions releases compilations and occasional single-artist specials, featuring new and established artists whose work will be of interest to our listeners. all works are previously unreleased, and are contributed freely by their creators in support of framework radio. many thanks to the artists, who have made this project possible.

detailed artist and track information is available for each release via the links below.
