This is the next-to-penultimate (pen-penultimate?) Disquiet Junto project of 2019. If you’ve been with the Junto for more than a year, you know what the last 2019 and first 2020 projects will focus on. In the meanwhile, this one is holiday-themed.
Disquiet Junto Project 0415: Seasonal Metal
The Assignment: Tinsel is your latest instrument.
There is just one step this week: Make a piece of music that explores tinsel for its sonic properties.
Of course, feel free to interpret this as literally or figuratively as you desire.
Seven More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:
Step 1: Include “disquiet0415” (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 “disquiet0415” (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, December 16, 2019, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, December 12, 2019.
Length: The length is up to you.
Title/Tag: When posting your track, please include “disquiet0415” 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:
