this edition of framework:afield, entitled a world behind this world, has been produced in scotland by regular contributor mark vernon. for more of his work see http://meagreresource.com/. producer’s notes:

A World Behind This World is a composed soundscape created from sounds recorded on location at the Scottish Sculpture Workshop in Lumsden, Aberdeenshire and the surrounding areas.

Depending on how you look at it – this is either an expanded version of the album released on Persistence of Sound earlier this year – or a condensed version of the original two-and-a-half-hour longform broadcast produced for Scottish Sculpture Workshop’s radio station, Lumsden Live in 2021.

In addition to sounds of the rural environment – recordings of various machines, equipment and processes from the workshop feature heavily. ‘Performed’ by technician, Eden Jolly, sound sources include the copper guillotine, extractor fans, electrical saws, drills, the furnace, welding torches, anvils, hydraulic jacks, sanding machines, grinders and electric hoists. The piece also features a recurring refrain made from the eerie sounds of the wood pellet burner that kept me awake for most of the night when I was staying on site.

Mark Vernon – Ribbons of Rust
Audio Archaeology Series Volume 2: Laem Thian

Ribbons of Rust continues a series of works exploring concepts around audio archaeology and found sound that began with the ‘Lend an ear, leave a word’ LP – Volume 1 in the Audio Archaeology series – released on Kye records in 2016. It is an irreverent, non-purist approach to field recording that puts found sound recordings of voices and music from the past on an equal footing with contemporary field recordings of a particular location.

The Dominion of Din is a radio play made out of recordings from a single fixed perspective over an eighteen-year period. It is created entirely from field recordings made out of the rear window of my flat in the West End of Glasgow. In essence, it is a catalogue of exterior sounds that have annoyed, disturbed or angered me over the years living at this residence – and sounds that have largely disappeared during lockdown. […]
