the summer drones took me in this mix - distant buzzing from an unidentifiable location, i'm not even entirely sure where they came from. definitely some more lockdown sounds in here, another piece from erstwhile records amplify2020 online festival, this one by vanessa rossetto, an exploration of familiar (to him) space by éric la casa, and an abstract domestic survey by matilde meireles. also (in contrast) some wide-world travels by mark vernon, and sounds of (electrical) failure by jd zazie, a piano being tuned, documented by heitor alves, and our regular segment of listened chosen favorites from the aporee maps.

it got HOT here this week – it took our minds off pandemics and protests and isolation and made us concentrate on finding some shade and a lake to jump in. the sounds as well seem to have melted somewhat – their edges blurred and they slurred together into a slow moving, cooling mass, hopefully bringing cooler temperatures for your ears. sounds from coventry, uk, where michael lightborne used various mic’ing techniques to record the megastructure of conventry ring road. minimal meditations on passing by canadian composer france jobin. further abstracted soundscapes by chra (christina nemec), urban eden (a collaboration between liz helman and dominic hemy) and simon šerc. more listener-chosen favorites from the aporee soundmaps. and a framework introduction recorded in bytom, poland by tomasz pizio.

this edition of framework:afield, entitled loops, phases, repetitions, has been produced in the uk by regular contributor keith de mendonca. Some of these recordings were made before 2020 and have been used again in this show. Other recordings were made at the start of 2020 around the world in ever decreasing circles as the Corona virus took hold and travel steadily reduced and finally ceased. Many of the recordings made in 2020 are related to the demonstrations and marches that have taken place in London this year. Some recordings have been treated as phased loops to reinforce the repetition of the words or sounds. Other recordings are of machines and circular movements.
