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.”

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in germany by architect, writer, sound artist and regular contributor d. l. lutz, and is entitled Earscape „Rainforest“. producer’s notes:

Earscape „Rainforest“

Welcome to the rainforest. It’s hot. It’s humid. It’s strange. But this is no normal rainforest. It’s an installation of technical objects fed with sounds of all sorts, thus pretending to be exotic animals. More precisely, it is Matt Rogalsky’s version of David Tudor’s composition “Rainforest”, displayed in a large empty water tank in Berlin. I was excited by the organic feel of the installation, so I recorded it and looked for other compositions and sounds that also blur the boundaries between the natural and the artificial. This is the result. As you listen, you can never be sure if you hear nature, processed nature or machines; some animals sound like computers, some computers sound like animals. What a strange world to visit… […]

this seasonal edition of framework:afield has been produced in berlin by architect, writer, and sound artist d.l. lutz. his notes:

Earscape „Sacral“

Here we are, two weeks before Christmas. And this is why we will go to church and hear some „holy noise“, as R. Murray Schafer calls it. Churches are ritual spaces, and rituals always have an acoustical aspect. Maybe acoustics even dominate every ritual. Churches and organs are definitely built to impress acoustically. Michal Jacaszek from Poland, being fascinated by this aural atmosphere, has made field recordings inside the main churches of Gdansk and reworked them to compositions. I mixed these great sounds with my own field recordings from churches and bells in Germany, with music form Arvo Pärt, Arve Henriksen and others, and with excursions onto church towers and into religious realms further east. This earscape is quite musical and meant to be a soulful companion to the advent season. It is ended by a country gospel intonating „fill me with life anew“ for the beginning of a new year. So relax, light a candle and enjoy some holy noise! […]
