what to say? although we thought spring was springing, it’s snowing again here in tartu, and apparently it’s going to keep doing so for the best part of the week. it wasn’t a particularly long winter this year, but come april, i’m ready for it to be over. we considered an april fool‘s show, but we couldn’t (in the approximately 45 seconds we dedicated to the task) come up with a worthwhile topic that would be both funny and listenable for a full 57 minutes. if you have an idea for next year let us know. our favorites this year were kfjc (one of our favorite radio stations) playing their annual 24 hours of horrible out-of-date top 40′s pop music (complete with old sears commercials) and this, from right here in estonia:
meanwhile we settled in with some heavy textural mixing, and waded our way through a whole host of sounds that have been waiting, waiting, waiting patiently in our to-play pile for a very long time. these are all cd releases, although the split release between terje paulsen and ákos garai is also available for download. next week we’ll be back with the 2nd in a two-part framework:afield series looking at notions of documentation of sound-art events, produced by felicity ford and valeria merlini.
and we can now announce that we have finalized the tracklist for the framework:seasonal ::: spring 2012 compilation! we’ll begin playing the exclusive tracks in our next regular edition, and we’ll begin taking preorders as of now! make a donation on the framework website of €18 or more, and you’ll get a copy of the new cd as soon as it’s ready (before the end of the month). meanwhile, if you missed the autumn 2011 edition, you can still order one of those as well – just make your donation and drop us a note to say which edition you’d like.
