all the fundraiser ebay auctions and their progress can be found here:

meanwhile, this weeks edition of framework:afield has been produced in 
the uk by dallas simpson, featuring recordings made around charmey and 
gruyère switzerland. notes from the producer:

The Alpine Cattle Descent at Charmey in Canton Freiburg, Switzerland is 
an annual festival parade celebrating the return of the cattle to the 
lowlands after spending the Summer up the mountains.

Sonically it is an exciting event. The cacocphanous clanging of 
multitudes of cowbells as groups of cattle are paraded through the 
streets, sits against the prolonged drone of Alpenhorns and the flapping 
of the National flag hoisted aloft by the obligatory flag waver. 
Wandering around the festival streets gives a continual spatial mix of 
people, music and sounds. An a capella choir sings traditional folk 
songs while to one side we hear the rustic clang of the blacksmiths 
anvil as he gives live demonstrations of his craft.

But up in the mountains there is a serene silence punctuated by distant 
orchestras of cattle, diving aircraft and a little improvisation with 
found metal poles and a ski lift landing pad constructed of hollow 

There are exciting spatial soundscapes to be heard here at both ends of 
the dynamic spectrum and ideal for binaural recording. Headphones essential!

again, we are always looking for new material, whether raw field 
recordings, field recording based composition, or introduction 
submissions. we are also now accepting proposals for full editions of 
our guest curated framework:afield series. send proposals or material, 
released or not, on any format, to the address at the bottom of this 
mail. if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
