Hosted by Patrick McGinley.

Field recording, phonography, and the art of sound-hunting, presented by Patrick Tubin McGinley. This week's special fundraiser edition features Nula.cc, Nils Mosh, Melissa Pons, Carrie DeCunzo, Ian Wellman, Lokto, sounds from The Aporee Maps by OR Poiesis, Fernando Bustto, Carlos Santos and Matthias Feuersenger, and a framework introduction recorded for us in Japan by Christopher Olson, AKA Standard Grey.

"Framework" is consecrated to field-recording and the use of field recordings in composition, and began broadcasting at a time when a new community of sound artists with a special interest in found sound was developing, a community spread across the world that, thanks to the internet, was no longer limited to a specific geography. "Framework" began broadcasting in June, 2002 on the newly reformed Resonance 104.4-FM in London. The show now airs on 12 radio stations around the world and streams and podcasts here on it’s own website. "Framework" sees itself as an outlet for this ever-growing and developing community, a folk-tool in a new folk movement, a community driven exchange point for creators and listeners alike. The show's goal is to present not only the extremely diverse sound environments of our world, but also the extremely diverse work that is being produced by the artists who choose to use these environments as their sonic sources. we hope to ask this question: is ‘field-recording’ a style, or a genre, or is it in fact as uncontrollable and undefinable an instrument or tool as any, that may be interpreted, manipulated, and appropriated by anyone with a microphone and an idea? these works are its definition, and not vice versa.

"Framework" broadcasts two distinct alternating formats, a regular edition, constructed and mixed by its presenter from contributions submitted by listeners and members of the field-recording community, and framework:afield, a guest-curated series produced by artists from all corners of the globe and based on their own themes, concepts or recordings. we see radio and the ability to broadcast as an important tool for any self-sustaining community, a way for it to communicate with its own members and with the world at large, a simultaneous staking of territory and invitation in. to quote the text that opens every edition of framework, open your ears and listen.
