::: framework250 compilations ready to ship :::

Framework is one of the longest-running field-recording radio shows that I know of. Patrick McGinley – the creative force behind the Framework radio show and the Murmerings website – is one of the most consistent makers and producers that I’ve met, and the longevity and sustained quality of Framework make it my favourite radio show. Framework is an essential meeting ground for field-recordists and a platform for works that would otherwise be homeless in the world of commercial broadcasting. Soundscapes, environmental recordings, phonography, field-recordings and compositions created from found sounds all find their place on Framework and looking back through the playlists on the website is a feast for anyone interested in finding artists who work with sound.

I have really enjoyed producing shows for Framework over the past number of years; Domestica, S H E E P, and a version of the Fantastical Reality Radio Show were all developed for Framework, and the work I did on the Janek Schaefer weekend workshop was broadcast on the recent found-stories episode of the show*.

During September 2009, Framework celebrated its 250th broadcast, and an official release has been compiled in order to commemorate that occasion and raise some funds for the continuation of the project; here’s what Patrick sent me.

the framework250 compilations are now ready to ship!

we are celebrating a landmark. in september framework aired its 250th
edition. to mark the occasion, a collection of artists who have been
important to the program over the years agreed to donate new and
exclusive tracks, which we have published on a pair of double-cdr
compilations, in handmade packaging.

they come in hand-cut, hand-folded, hand-silkscreened opaque origami
sleeves, with inlay cards printed on local 100% recycled estonian-made
paper from the rapina village paper factory, about 20km from me here in
mooste. the sounds are slow-burnt onto the highest quality taiyo yuden
cdrs, and hand-stamped with custom made rubber stamps. they sound and
look great, if i do say so myself. all in all, my novice over-enthusiasm
means these are more effort that i would probably ever be willing to
make for a release again, so snap them up while you can!

*you can hear a version of the Found Sound Stories workshop over on the Genepool Podcast page. Martin Franklin, (who runs the Digital Media Centre at South Hill Park and who organised the Janek Schaefer weekend workshop) edited together all the materials produced at that workshop, into an informative and rich podcast. Do go and download it if you want to listen to a lot of interesting soundscapes made from old records, found-sounds, field-recordings etc.
