framework has been on the air on londonís resonancefm since june, 2002, featuring regular editions of field recordings and field recording based composition, live on-air performances, and special editions such as framework:focus (which features the work of a single artist, project or theme), and framework:afield (a series of programs produced by guest artists from around the world). framework supports both established artists and novice enthusiasts, and much of itís material is provided by inspired listeners. the name of the program derives from a photographic metaphor, implying a concentration on the framing, capture and presentation of found sound, or phonography.

Patrick McGinley (aka murmer)

is an american born sound and performance artist who has lived and worked in europe since 1996. his work concentrates on the framing of sounds from our environment which normally pass through our ears unnoticed and unremarked, but which out of context become unrecognisable, alien and extraordinary: crackling charcoal, a squeaking escalator, a buzzing insect, or oneís own breath. his live performances attempt to integrate and resonate found sounds, found objects, specific spaces, and moments in time, in order to create a direct and visceral link with an audience and location.
