this edition of framework:afield has been produced in the philippines by dayang yraola. for more information see dayang’s website at http://www.dayangyraola.com. producer’s notes:
Project Bakawan is an arts festival held at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. It is a festival that took inspiration from sustaining and sustainability of the mangroves, which is a crucial component of the ecological balance in the Philippines.
Listening Terminals is the offering of Project Bakawan’s Sound and Movement Component.
Listening terminals is an archiving project, which recorded sounds from different parts of Metro Manila. Materials were gathered through crowd sourcing from social media.
Listening terminals is also a composition project, wherein musicians were invited to compose works using the gathered sounds. Later movement artists were invited to compose performance using the composed music. In the 1 month exhibition, visual artists are also being invited to react and interact with the listening terminals that are installed on the Academic Oval of the University.
Like most field recording projects, listening terminals is an attempt to isolate the different sonic layers of a very crowded city , to direct more attention towards them for purposes of awareness, and hopefully as source of creative inspiration.
