listen to this edition here: 

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in vancouver, usa by 
john f. barber, and is entitled 'transect: london'. for more information 
see http://www.radionouspace.org/john.

producer's notes:

"Transects is a sound art project investigating ways of sampling sounds 
along a path through a particular space or place. The desired end result 
is to promote immersive narrative collages of sounds that represent that 
place or space, all best experienced through listening.

"My practice of creating transects draws on the features and affordances 
of soundscapes, soundwalks, and sound maps. Soundscapes are the 
multiple, overlapping, sounds one might hear at a particular location. 
Soundwalks promote listening to a soundscape by walking to sound 
sources. Sound maps plot sound sources at specific locations and promote 
listening to targeted sounds within a soundscape. Transects sample 
particular or characteristic sounds along a path through a space or 
place, which, when combined, provide a mix or collage of the soundscape. 
Learn more about soundscapes, soundwalks, and sound maps.

"Transects are lines drawn across some area along which counts are made, 
generally of plant or animal life. I am indebted to Belfast sound artist 
Kate Carr for adapting transects to provide access to soundscapes.

"In my practice, I use transects for recording interaction with 
soundscapes. But, rather than record everything, I sample sounds along 
the transect as ear witness to the site and journey. I use the transect 
to investigate sonic flows and mixing, changes in the soundscape, and to 
document particular or characteristic sounds, all with an ear to the 
narratives they may promote. The resulting sound collages are worthy of 
close listening."
