Disquiet Junto Project 0337: Through-Composted
Create a piece of music that is through-composed, but built entirely from samples.
Step 1: This project involves the concept of through-composed music. If the term isn’t familiar, please read up. As a starting point, here is the definition from Collins Dictionary: “having a compositional structure that is not based on repeating sections of music; specif., of a song with stanzas having regular meter and rhyme but different music for each stanza.”
Step 2: Employ the concept of through-composed music in the creation of a short piece — and do so only using sampled material.
Six More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:

Step 2: If your audio-hosting platform allows for tags, be sure to also include the project tag “disquiet0337” (no spaces or quotation marks). If you’re posting on SoundCloud in particular, this is essential to subsequent location of tracks for the creation a project playlist.
