listen to this edition here: 

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in northern ireland 
and scotland by mark vernon. for more information see 
http://www.meagreresource.com. notes from the artist:

"Using unconventional recording techniques and studio trickery certain 
qualities within the Derry soundscape have been highlighted, exaggerated 
or distorted into something unusual and unexpected – obscuring what was 
once recognisable and enabling radio listeners to hear the city in a new 

"Taking the everyday sounds of the city as a starting point, a series of 
field recordings selected for their ambiguous qualities were played back 
to Derry residents; the sounds became increasingly distorted as the 
sequence progressed. The ambiguity was heightened through a variety of 
unusual recording processes including extreme close-ups, electromagnetic 
induction, ultrasound, binaural stereo, hydrophones and contact mics. 
Additionally, digital processing techniques were used to further 
‘denature’ these once familiar sounds. Participants were asked to 
identify, describe and imitate each sound. The resulting 'sound 
descriptions' were in turn used as briefs to create artificial or 
exaggerated sounds matching the qualities described by subjects. In the 
final work, the natural and unnatural sounds of Derry are intermingled 
in a long form radiophonic sound composition that meanders through the 
city accompanied by insights and analysis of the sound environment by 
the people who inhabit it."

Featuring the voices: of Sarah Barr, Fiona Burke, Eamonn Brown, Amanda 
Doherty, Charlene Smith and Marta.

Commissioned for the ‘Derry City of Culture 2013’ radio residency 
broadcasts by Resonance FM and the Jerwood Foundation in association 
with VOID gallery.

First broadcast on Resonance 104.4 FM, October 2013.
