well folks, it's that time again - every year framework takes the month 
of august off to refresh our ears and recharge our recorders. this year 
we hope to spend the month finally painting the walls and moving into 
the new permanent framework HQ! hopefully by the time we come back to 
you in early september we'll be out of the sauna (or at least more 
permanently installed in the sauna) and in our new home. cross your 
fingers for us! in the meantime, if you can't bear to be apart from us 
for so long (we know it's hard) why not peruse the 625 editions of 
framework in our archives? all online, all free, all available for your 
listening pleasure at the click of a button:


"but why only 625?" i hear you asking, "this is edition #767 - where are 
the other 142 editions?" well, they're sitting on a hard drive, waiting 
for us to be able to dedicate the time for editing, mastering and 
uploading them. someday it will happen, basically when we can afford to 
do it - if you want to help make it possible, why not pop over to our 
patreon page and help support the mission!


this week's edition of framework:afield, entitled 'listening with the 
blackwater estuary', was produced in the united kingdom by blanc sceol 
(stephen shiell & hannah white). for more information see 
https://blancsceol.co.uk. producer's notes:


Listening with…’ is a series of sound works that deeply listen to 
non-human life, as an act of embracing and raising voice, and an attempt 
to relocate our ears beyond our human perspective and into the 
multi-specied dimension.

Tracing seasonal outlines, finding our way through a landscape by deeply 
listening; reinforcing, reimagining, reinstating, and repurposing what 
is heard. Close listening and ears-under-skin murmuring, seeking, 
peeling, pulling, teasing, sounding terrain and sub-terrain. Tentative 
steps gradually walk towards full immersion and embodied presence.

Listening with… the Blackwater Estuary

This piece visits the Blackwater Estuary from both sides, at Tollesbury 
and Bradwell-on-sea. Working with a variety of microphones, these 
layered field recordings and voice seek to contribute to the acoustic 
commons and bring listeners to an area of natural heritage currently 
threatened by the proposed Bradwell B nuclear power station, 15 years 
after the old station was officially defueled. A journey from newness to 
becoming, a resting and a migration, and a sense of urgency in the face 
of this new threat to the area.

Microphones both above and below water, alongside geophones and contact 
mics, capture a multi-faceted perspective encompassing unheard 
vibrations. Our listening and walking within a landscape becomes a 
reflection of our interior landscapes, the impluse to go inward in 
contradiction with the burgeoning springtime. Walking and listening to 
capture a timelessness, and yet still move forward. Words form a sensory 
exploration of body feelings and tensions, recounting these as animal 
qualities. Experiencing the voice within the landscape, a singularity in 
connection with what is around, meandering towards a plurality, a 
oneness. The feeling that comes from a place of expanded listening where 
the ‘I’ melts into the field of sound and into other sounding bodies. 
Where language fails, vocal sounds take over.
