framework editions is proud to announce it’s latest release, framework500, produced in celebration of the 500th(!) edition of my long-running radio show, framework, which premiered on sunday, february 22nd, 2015.

to celebrate this important moment in our history, we are publishing this new 3-disc compilation. we invited the artists who participated in our first release, framework250, to return with a new work. we are proud to present those works here, slow burnt onto the highest quality CDRs, and housed in a beautiful origami sleeve made from locally produced recycled stock from räpina paberivabrik and letterpressed on the historical machines at studio.tartuensis.

what’s more, we have had the amazing opportunity to be present for both the production of our very own paper stock, and its printing, and have thusly been able to include on the release recordings of both of these processes. so you can hold framework500 in your hand while you listen to the sounds of the paper you are touching being made and the words you are reading being printed. many, many thanks to mihkel peedimaa and lemmit kaplinski for making this possible. we are very proud to be able to produce this object with local materials in collaboration with local artisans.

framework500 is available to framework supporters in exchange for a minimum donation of 40€, via the framework website. framework is a 100% volunteer effort, and we rely on listener support to be able to continue. please support your favorite radio show today!

of course this project would not have been possible without the participation and good will of all the artists.
many thanks to them, once again, for making it happen.
