Podcast – Framework Radio – Sound Hunting
Dave Wesley, June 28th 2017
Framework Radio is a very interesting and unique podcast focused on sound hunting, field recording, phonography, etc. They put out a new show a couple of times per month and they have over 600 shows in their archive. This is fantastic sample food if nothing else.
From their info page:
framework began broadcasting in june, 2002 on the newly reformed resonance 104.4fm in london. the show now airs on twelve radio stations around the world, with regular new additions to its broadcast family, and streams and podcasts here on its own website. framework is consecrated to field recording and its 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 globe that, thanks to the internet, was no longer limited to a specific geography. framework sees itself as an outlet for this ever-growing and developing community, a folk-tool in a new folk movement, a community driven exchange point for creators and listeners alike. framework‘s goal is to present not only the extremely diverse sound environments of our world, but also the extremely diverse work that is being produced by the artists who choose to use these environments as their sonic sources. we hope to ask this question: is ‘field recording’ a style, or a genre, or is it in fact as uncontrollable and undefinable an instrument or tool as any, that may be interpreted, manipulated, and appropriated by anyone with a microphone and an idea? these works are its definition, and not vice versa.
