Anna Bromley invited framework:afield with their edition #356, which has been produced by Valeria Merlini and Felicity Ford, with the participants of the framework radio: documentation and production workshop, which took place in july 2011 as part of the Tuned City Tallinn Festival in Estonia.
The workshop had two goals: the production of a series of short on-the-spot creative documentary pieces to be presented to audiences at the beginning of each day of activities during the tuned city festival, and the production of this retrospective hour-long radio show. participation included a daily gathering of recordings and interviews from the tuned city events, and the editing of them into an audio highlight sequence to be presented the following day. the original ‘shorts’ can be heard here:

framework began broadcasting in june, 2002 on the newly reformed resonance 104.4fm in london. the show now airs on 5 radio stations around the world, with more to follow soon, and streams and podcasts here on it’s own website. framework is consecrated to field-recording and it’s use in composition, and began broadcasting at a time when a new community of sound artists with a special interest in found sound was developing, a community spread across the world that, thanks to the internet, was no longer limited to a specific geography. You can listen to framework broadcasts here:

Many thanks to Felicity and Valeria, to the workshop participants: Daniel Allen, Lewis McGuffie, Kadi Pilt, and Kaisa Sammelselg and to Patrick and Carsten of frameworkradio. For more Info on the workshop:
