*#306: 2010.11.21
this edition of */framework:afield/* has been produced in shanghai, 
china by *terence lloren*.  for more information see 
http://www.biv0uac.com, or http://www.growingupwithshanghai.com.  
terence says:

    “Growing Up With Shanghai” is a series of soundwalks with young
    Shanghainese who were born and raised during the rapid modernization
    of their city in the 1980s and 1990s. These recordings capture not
    only their most intimate memories of the locations where they grew
    up, but also the progress and growth Shanghai has undergone in the
    past 30 years. The current sounds of Shanghai can be heard behind
    the dialog and also serve as an audio document for future
    generations of Shanghainese. All dialogue is in Shanghainese or in
    their local dialect.

    In 1978, China began its road to reform. Today we can see its
    tremendous result- and this is only the beginning. The
    ‘soundwalkers’ in this project were born between 1978 and 1985 in
    the Municipality of Shanghai. As Shanghai matured during these
    reforms, so did they in their own lives. ‘Hidden’ within their
    memories, they reveal small and indirect references to how these
    locations looked and felt. The city of Shanghai is alive and changes
    and grows just like any living thing- becoming stronger, more
    intelligent, and more beautiful.

    Like sound itself, this project can be experienced and interpreted
    on many levels. On the surface it may just be a field recording of
    street sounds in another language, it could be everything I mention
    here, or something totally different. Whatever you get from these
    recordings, transcripts, and photos is exclusive only to you and
    your imagination. I hope that it makes Shanghai less intimidating
    and familiar to you and that if you do come, you try to experience a
    more intimate side of Shanghai by following one of these on your own.

    A book of transcripts and photographs of each walk is available to
    further enhance your experience and to totally immerse you in each
    location. With this book, you are able to understand their stories
    as well as navigate through the routes that were taken on that day.
    The first edition will be a limited edition print of 200 books. The
    entire project was recorded, designed, printed, and hand-numbered
    and packaged in Shanghai, China and is truly a piece of Shanghai in
    your hands.

    This project is not another tour guide. It shows the reality of
    Shanghai through sounds of the city and its people. Through the
    memories of its inhabitants and the imaginations of others, the city
    of Shanghai extends to beyond its boundaries to wherever you are.

    I hope that you enjoy your experience of this project and that one
    day your imagination leads you here.
