producer’s notes:

Mandy Szostek is not a professional field recordist, but a lover of field recording; mostly as she has been exposed to, so wonderfully via platforms onFacebook. It has been about 6 years of avidly listening to the work of others, and thanks to a warm and inviting online community, has been able to learn a lot, and enjoy very much!! She has been shy about starting off on her own, but now with a handheld recorder, is feeling slowly but surely more emboldened, and comfortable. The same can be said about teaching oneself how to use audio software …. It is intimidating at the beginning, but turns in to something inviting and even promising! Thank you to all of the fascinating and fantastic recordists out there! 

This is a conceptual method, where I have picked a monument which is significant to me ahead of time, and then, “arrive there, remain still, and listen to whatever may be in the atmosphere…to find,whatever it sounded like” in the atmosphere around that place. I chose the cemetary near to where I live, named Bellefontaine. This is very text heavy, but, I thought it was appropriate, to read the texts which I found over a 6 month period, delving into the question of the number, “666”, and to weave a tapestry of what that meant to me,with the birds and sound of trucks and walkers and trains in the background. It was luckily a beautiful day, November 29, 2018 at around 1 o’ clock in the afternoon… in St. Louis, Missouri,coordinates, are: 38* 41’ 25.6” N , 90* 13’ 53.5” W.

This edition of framework:afield, entitled ‘train’, has been produced in germany by regular contributor d. l. lutz. notes from the producer:
This earscape mainly features field recordings from a long-distance train in Germany going from Hamburg Main Station to Berlin Main Station, passing small towns, forests and river Elbe, meeting and overtaking other trains, allowing to hear horses and birds in the meadows, moving very slow and very fast… This ride is compiled for everyone who suffers from wanderlust and likes wind and track noises and bad conductor’s announcements because it reminds him / her of the pleasant, unburdened state of travelling. But without the visual information that the carriage window provides, the typical train sounds of metal, speed and echoes of the surroundings develop an unfamiliar, and often mysterious, life of its own.

By superimposing fragments of the fascinating two-hour post-modern composition “Music For Checking Emails” by Wolfgang Mitterer from Austria, the atmospheric, suspended, reminiscential aspect is increased. Mitterers topic is a different one, but his work is also dealing with the fragmented surface of this modern world – which happens to be an acoustical fit that works surprisingly well. Listen loud and have a good journey!
