originally aired on 28.11.03
a couple of new releases from bernhard guenter’s trente oiseaux label this week, and a return visit from several of our favorites of recent history: quiet american, rob mullender and janek schaefer. we also featured material from two fellow resonance fm program makers, viv corringham and john wynne, and polish artist pawel grabowski, who impressed us last week with his live set at the red rose club.
now hopefully none of you will be tuning in to our next show – or none of you here in london , at least – as it is on the same night as advent-garde, resonance fm’s free holiday benefit concert at conway hall. framework will air as normal, but it will be a prerecorded edition (it will be recorded that morning), as i, along with all good londoners, will be at the event. i have been asked to provide ‘interval soundscapes,’ which will be untreated field recording collages, regularly throughout the evening, so if you like your phonography come down and show your support! further details at the end of this mail.
