the last edition of framework:afield for 2021 has been produced in the 
united states by ben link collins. for more of his work see 
http://www.alabamafield.com/. producer's notes:


There’s a lot that I could tell you about Big Bend, but I think for the 
sake of these recordings there are only two main bits of information you 
need to know.

First, as I said, Big Bend is on the U.S. Mexico Boarder, where in years 
prior the pandemic tourists could cross the Rio Grande River into Mexico 
to spend a day in a small town called Boquillas.  Since the border 
closing between the United States and Mexico, which fortunately will be 
ending soon, Boquillas has been completely cut off from tourism, which 
makes for the vast majority of the towns income for it’s 250-300 
residence.  However, everyday tourists wade through the usually shallow 
waters to set foot in Mexico, and residence of Boquillas cross the 
border to fish, move ranch animals, and to layout displays of trinkets, 
jewelry, and souvenirs for U.S. tourists in Big Bend to purchase by 
placing money in a jar or aluminum coffee can, purely relying on the 
honor system.

The second thing you need to know is about the geological history of how 
Big Bend came to be.  The mixture of flat desert and abrupt extrusions 
of land into mountains and canyons is the result of something called the 
Western Interior Seaway, which was a body of water that bisected North 
America from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean up until around 60 
million years ago.  Since then, rising tectonic plates and volcanic 
eruptions have raised the land above sea level. But the established land 
formations from volcanic eruptions, underwater sediment and ocean 
current, as well as fossils of the lives lived in the Seaway, are still 
in abundance and make up the surreal landscape.  In short, you are 
always aware that you are walking on an extinct ocean floor.


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
