#637: 2018.04.15
listen to this edition here: 

first, some unashamed promotion: THIS WEEK FRAMEWORK LAUNCHED ITS 
PATREON CAMPAIGN  (and many thanks to those of you who have already 
supported it), a new an vastly superior way for you to support the 
program. the campaign got off to a good start, but stalled quickly. we 
are currently at a mere 13% of the pledges we need to enable framework 
to be even remotely viable in taking upwards of two full working days 
per week to produce and maintain. we are sure there are more than 17 of 
you who listen regularly, value the program, and can afford to pledge 
$10, $5, or even just $1 a month to help keep the program running. IF 
can't do it without you. have a looksee:


(and don't forget, if you're sick of reading these solicitations, then 
you're probably even more sick of hearing them in the show, but if you 
pledge $10 or more you'll have access to our new patron-only 
VOICEOVER-FREE shows, and you'll never have to hear me beg again!)

but on to the show - this edition of framework:afield has been produced 
in germany by regular contributor d.l. lutz, and is entitled 'earscape: 
rainforest'. producer's notes:

"Welcome to the rainforest. It's hot. It's humid. It's strange. But this 
is no normal rainforest. It's an installation of technical objects fed 
with sounds of all sorts, thus pretending to be exotic animals. More 
precisely, it is Matt Rogalsky's version of David Tudor's composition 
"Rainforest", displayed in a large empty water tank in Berlin. I was 
excited by the organic feel of the installation, so I recorded it and 
looked for other compositions and sounds that also blur the boundaries 
between the natural and the artificial. This is the result. As you 
listen, you can never be sure if you hear nature, processed nature or 
machines; some animals sound like computers, some computers sound like 
animals. What a strange world to visit..."

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!
