Disquiet Junto Project 0412: One Chord Wonder
The Assignment: Play an extended chord where the instrumentation of each note changes as the piece proceeds.
Step 1: Choose a chord, any chord.
Step 2: Make a list of the notes that the chord is comprised of.
Step 3: Record a piece of music in which each of the notes in the chord are played by different instruments (more broadly: different sound sources).
Step 4: As the piece proceeds, change each of the instruments/sources, while never altering the notes that make up the chord.
Seven More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:
Step 1: Include “disquiet0412” (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 “disquiet0412” (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, November 25, 2019, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, November 21, 2019.
Length: The length is up to you.
Title/Tag: When posting your track, please include “disquiet0412” 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:
