*#300! 2010.10.10

*this edition must be numerologically significant - not only did it 
premier on the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10th year of this 
century, but it is also - wait for it - our *300th edition*!  hardly 
have we finished celebrating our 250th when we are faced with yet 
another anniversary.  we're decided to take this one a little more low 
key, but there are some new plans for the future which will come clear 
before the end of the year.  meanwhile, this is the perfect opportunity 
for us to make our two semi-regular calls:

1) *we need /framework/ introductions, folks!*  if you've never recorded 
one, get out there and do it now!  be amongst the first to have your 
intro featured in a /*framework*/ edition that begins with the digit 3!  
visit the /*framework*/ website and click on 'intros' for guidelines, or 
have a look at the bottom of this mail.

2) *we also need donations, folks!*  it's our anniversary, and if you 
want to help us celebrate, or maybe give us a little gift, please go to 
the /*framework*/ website and donate!  do it now!  if you listen to the 
show regularly, please consider become a subscriber, to make a regular 
monthly donation.  €5, even €1 per month can really go a long way to 
helping keep us in saltines so we can keep producing the show.  if every 
regular /*framework*/ listener subscribed for just €1 per month we 
could... well, we could certainly stop hassling you all the time for 

and remember, 25% of your donation (one-time and subscription donations 
both) goes directly to *resonancefm* in london, without whom 
/*framework*/ would never have existed.  and what's more, we still have 
a few copies of the /*framework250*/ celebratory compilations left, in 
beautiful hand-cut, hand-silkscreened, and hand-folded origami 
packaging, that you can snap up as a thank you for your donation.

so - begging and homework-giving aside (donate!  record intros!), let's 
move on to the show!  this *300th edition* is a /*framework:afiel*/d 
episode produced in scotland by *mark vernon* as the 1st of a 3 part series:

    */Precipitation Studies Volume I: Surfaces/*

    /The first in a series of three rainscapes composed by Mark Vernon
    culled from over 20 hours of rain recordings made in the UK, Greece,
    Canada, U.S.A. and Germany. Many of these sounds were originally
    recorded as part of a commission by Scottish artists Dalziel &
    Scullion for their 'Rain Pavilion'. A purpose-built, site-specific
    listening station constructed for the Kaust University campus, Saudi

    /Rain has a unique ability to sound out and describe the surfaces in
    our immediate surroundings, making us newly aware of the timbre,
    dimensions and other sonic qualities of all things in our vicinity.
    Rainfall on pots and pans, tubs and tins, car bonnets and cafe
    tables, park benches and rubbish bins, drainpipes and scaffolding,
    umbrellas and window panes, conservatories and caravans, pavements
    and microphones.../

    /"I opened the front door, and rain was falling. I stood for a few
    minutes. Lost in the beauty of it. Rain has a way of bringing out
    the contours of everything; it throws a coloured blanket over
    previously invisible things; instead of an intermittent and thus
    fragmented world, the steadily falling rain creates continuity of
    acoustic experience."/

    /(from: John M. Hull, Touching the Rock. An Experience of Blindness,
    Arrow books, London, 1991, pp.22-23)/

    /Mark Vernon is a sound artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. For more
    details see: http://www.meagreresource.com/

again, we are always looking for material for the show, 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 below.  if you 
have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
