Framework Radio
Tartu — Estonia
Mission statement

framework began broadcasting in june, 2002, and now broad- and podcasts online and on radio stations around the world.

framework is consecrated to field recording and it’s use in composition, and began 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 and no longer, thanks to the internet, limited to a specific geography.

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.

framework’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 materials.

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.
