Disquiet Junto Project 0306: Music in Motion
Record a piece of music while en route somewhere
Step 1: You’ll be making a piece of music while en route somewhere. Consider what instrument(s) and recording equipment you can easily carry.
Step 2: Plot a short trip — maybe a bus or train ride, maybe you’re in the back seat while someone else drives, maybe you’re driving and you record yourself singing.
Step 3: Compose and record a short piece of music with the equipment from Step 1 while on the route you decided upon in Step 2. Only use that equipment, and finish the piece while you’re still on the road.
Side Note: Certainly the sounds you encounter while on your little trip are potential source material.
Five More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:
Step 1: If your hosting platform allows for tags, be sure to include the project tag “disquiet0306” (no spaces) in the name of your track. If you’re posting on SoundCloud in particular, this is essential to my locating the tracks and creating a playlist of them.
Step 2: Upload your track. It is helpful but not essential that you use SoundCloud to host your track.
Step 3: In this following discussion thread at llllllll.co please consider posting your track.
Step 4: Annotate your track with a brief explanation of your approach and process.
Step 5: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
