On 18 July 2021* members of Heya Collective simultaneously live streamed for 1 hour, from Turkey, UK, Lebanon and Egypt, the sounds of their immediate surroundings in response to the call out for World Listening Day 2021 (link: https://www.worldlisteningproject.org/world-listening-day-2021-the-unquiet-earth/). It emerged for us as time to come together apart, listening to the audible and contemplating the positioning of the callout and our experiences of the pandemic, as female field recordists, our relationship to one another and to the environment. The end result was not quiet, let alone ‘beyond the threshold of human hearing’, but an interpersonal and interspecies dialogue (often precisely because of the absence of each other and of other species’ audibility in those moments) of dispersed but connected ‘noisy’ realities.Read more
this is an all-woman iwd show with an intentionally global focus.
the concept, mixing and mastering of this show were shared by long-term framework radio contributors, jilliene sellner, and felicity (felix) ford, both currently based in the uk. stitched together from their respective collections of soundart, field recordings and phonography by women from around the world, this mix explores how womanhood intersects with other identities such as race, ethnicity and disability in womens’ creative sonic praxis. a range of different concerns are reflected, from preoccupation with climate-change, to the importance of decolonising listening space.
most of the artists featured here also have a presence on bandcamp, where you can directly support them. each artist featured is making vital contributions to the fields of soundart, phonography and field-recording and we highly recommend that you check out their work via the links below.Read more

this edition of framework:afield, entitled women in the field, has been produced in the uk by jilliene sellner. producer’s notes: “Women in the Field is a brief exploration of the experience of females who practice field recording. I’m certain there is much more to be said on the subject particularly from those outside of Europe and North America, who do not identify as cis and/or identify as a person of colour and so on than the contents of this episode. This is just a starting point. I am extremely grateful for the contributions from the artists.” […]Read more
