It’s been awhile since we did a communal remix project, so that’s what we’re doing. A big reason we do fewer of them is that when the Junto started, tons of netlabels had music online allowing for Creative Commons remixes. That isn’t the case as much any longer. In any case, C. Reider, a longtime Junto participant, who spearheaded the 2012 Junto concert in Denver, Colorado, made his recent album, … a trustable cloud, available for us to remix this week.
Thanks to him, and thanks, as always, for your generosity with your time and creativity.
Disquiet Junto Project 0405: Trustable (C. Remix)
The Assignment: Remix music from C. Reider’s album … a trustable cloud.
Step 1: The album … a trustable cloud by the Colorado-based musician C. Reider is available at the following URL. It is downloadable for free. Reider, a longtime Junto participant, has given us permission to remix it for this project.
Step 2: Remix the album to your heart’s content, and your ears’, for that matter. Focus on one track, or combine elements from various tracks. Add your own material, or stick with Reider’s. The direction is up to you. (Note: Reider created the album using online tools, and you might consider using one or more of those tools yourself.)
Seven More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:
Step 1: Include “disquiet0405” (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 “disquiet0405” (no spaces or quotation marks). If you’re posting on SoundCloud in particular, this is essential to subsequent location of tracks for the creation of 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: If posting on social media, please consider using the hashtag #disquietjunto so fellow participants are more likely to locate your communication.
Step 7: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
Deadline: This project’s deadline is Monday, October 7, 2019, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, October 3, 2019.
Length: The length is up to you.
Title/Tag: When posting your track, please include “disquiet0405” 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: 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).
For context, when posting the track online, please be sure to include this following information:
