Disquiet Junto Project 0357: Clock Work
The Assignment: Base a piece of music on your previous 12 hours.
Step 1: Think about your previous 12 hours as of the moment you begin this project.
Step 2: Note one single thing that best summarizes each of those 12 hours. That is: one thing for each of those 12 hours. Each “thing” should be one strong association with that hour, such as what you did, what you felt, what you thought, where you were, and so forth. This step’s process will result in a list of 12 things in sequence.
Step 3: Record a short piece of music consisting of 12 segments that reflect each of the 12 items that surfaced as a result of Step 2. You might make transitions between the segments, or have them immediately follow one to the next.
Six More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:
Step 1: Include “disquiet0357” (no spaces or quotation marks) in the name of your track.
Step 2: If your audio-hosting platform allows for tags, be sure to also include the project tag “disquiet0357” (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.
Step 3: Upload your track. It is helpful but not essential that you use SoundCloud to host your track.
Step 4: Post your track in the following discussion thread at llllllll.co:
Step 5: Annotate your track with a brief explanation of your approach and process.
Step 6: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
Deadline: This project’s deadline is Monday, November 5, 2018, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are on. It was posted in the early afternoon, California time, on Thursday, November 1, 2018.
Length: The length of your track is up to you.
Title/Tag: When posting your track, please include “disquiet0357” in the title of the track, and where applicable (on SoundCloud, for example) as a tag.
Upload: When participating in this project, post one finished track with the project tag, and be sure to include a description of your process in planning, composing, and recording it. This description is an essential element of the communicative process inherent in the Disquiet Junto. Photos, video, and lists of equipment are always appreciated.
Download: Please consider setting your track as downloadable and allowing for attributed remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution, allowing for derivatives).
