Framework Featuring juried work by international sound artists, Framework Radio's goal is to present the extremely diverse sound environments of our world, and the extremely diverse work that is being produced by the artists who choose to use these environments as their sonic sources. The research and creative question behind Framework Radio programming asks, "Is field recording a style or genre, or rather an uncontrollable and undefinable tool as any, that may be interpreted, manipulated, and appropriated by anyone with a microphone and idea?" Works produced in response to this question are the answer, the definition, not vice versa.

Based in Võru, Estonia, Framework Radio began broadcasting in June 2002 on Resonance 104.4 FM in London. It is now heard here on Radio Nouspace and other radio stations around the world, and is available via streaming and podcasts at the Framework Radio website. Framework Radio is available in four versions: framework:regular, framework:afield, framework:seasonal, and framework:ephemera.
