#472: 2014.06.22
listen to this edition here: 

this edition of framework:afield has been produced by the students of 
john levack drever's phonography course at goldsmith's college, 
university of london. producers' notes:

This show is a collection of excerpts of works by students in the Music 
Department at Goldsmiths, University of London. The pieces were created 
as part of the 'Phonography' course now in its 8th year, led by John 
Levack Drever. The course offers lectures, discussions and workshops on 
found sound and acoustic ecology. Each piece demonstrates an 
individual’s foray into issues found within field recording and 
soundscape composition.

Samuel Owen - Movements Through Birmingham - 1:20 - 8:07
Conceptually 'Movements through Birmingham' is a piece that presents an 
acoustic ecology study of the city of Birmingham and a select few of its 
residents. The piece is a representational artwork that presents the 
participants humanist relation to their urban environment and space 
through the medium of acoustics. 7 Movements through Birmingham enables 
the idea of self to be explored by analysing our connection to 
environments and fond spaces.

Lugh O'Neill - The Workshop - 8:08 - 17:42
The workshop is significant in terms of my personal relationship with 
it. The potter, being my mother, and the workshop, having always been a 
part of my home, are subjects which deal with my roots. The potter and 
the workshop have a totally different significance for most people who 
come into contact with it; people who purchase pots crafted there, 
visitors interested in the production process, ceramists, potters 
interested in the craft and interns. By creating this piece, I add a 
group to this list; I present the workshop as a sonic space, and I 
create an audience of listeners. Making recordings, applying thought to 
my relationship to the workshop, creating the piece, and considering my 
role as a student and composer in a place so familiar to me is a 
substantial self exploration, and a chance to assess my relationship 
with home, how it has changed over time, and what happens to my 
relationship with home when i make it the subject of composition. It is 
also an exercise which forces me to assess my role in composition; how 
much of my personal relationship to the subject should be understood and 
transmitted in the piece.

Yasmin Jess – Tourist Fixation  - 17:43 - 27:12
My ‘Tourist Fixation’ summarizes years of recordings and videos. In a 
sense it is a nomadic sound map of my travels of the recent past, 
showing identities of places, how I got them to know and to capture the 
ambience and atmospheres of the roads less traveled. The objectives of 
this piece were to capture and present a variety of soundscapes and 
acoustic spaces of a large selection of locations across Europe. What 
originally inspired this idea was John Urry’s writings and theories in 
The Tourist Gaze and his research of the urban and regional

Gus Lobban - Et Vous, L’Orchestre! - 27:13 - 36:47
Et Vous, L’Orchestre! is comprised of Zoom H2 recordings made during 
Soirée Pompette, a French- themed variety show, at Exmouth Market on 
18th December 2013. These recordings were edited to highlight the 
crowd’s response, shifting the focus of the performance document from 
artist to audience. The result reveals their complex social dramaturgy 
and brings out the naturally pleasing effect of laughter sourced from 
genuine responses to humour.

William Hughes - FR 1 - 36:48 - 46:32
In late August upon looking through old boxes of family memorabilia we 
had found 2 audiocassette tapes, the first dating to around 1984. The 
second tape was a Playskool branded tape that I recall coming from a toy 
tape recorder I owned as a 2-3 year old dating from 1992/3. These tapes 
were forgotten. Tape 1 had recordings of my sister aged 5 reading 
poetry, singing hymns and talking to my mother and father. Tape 2 had 
various recordings of myself at 2-3 years old, recordings of my brother 
as a teen, his friends, my father and my mother. Through the discovery 
of these tapes I decided to record up to date recordings of my family 
including new additions of my siblings children. All of these clips are 
juxtaposed against field recordings taken from both locations to where 
they were originally recorded. So the found tape archives are coupled 
with recordings taken in Finsbury Park, North London. The others are 
coupled with field recordings from St Neots, Camrbridgeshire. The piece 
is composed chronologically with the original recordings first moving 
with the location based material and developing as the piece goes on. 
The original piece is much longer. Edited for this show.. keep an eye 
on:http://willhughes.bandcamp.com/ as the full composition will be 
uploaded soon!

Yeonhee Jeong - Speaking in Tounges - 46:33 - 56:20
Yeonhee invites us to listen-in on her London-based Korean Christian 
fellowship group speaking in tongues.
