Disquiet Junto Project 0031: Ono’s Match

The Assignment: Interpret an incendiary Fluxus score from 1955 by Yoko Ono.

Each Thursday evening at the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com a new compositional challenge is set before the group’s members, who then have just over four days to upload a track in response to the assignment. Membership to the Junto is open: just join and participate.

The assignment was made late in the day, California time, on Thursday, July 26, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, August 2, as the deadline. View a search return for all the entries as they are posted: disquiet0031-onomatch.

Below are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto). They appear below translated into three additional languages: German, Japanese, and Turkish, courtesy of Allan Brugg, Naoyuki Sasanami, and M. Emre Meydan, respectively.

Disquiet Junto Project 0031: Ono’s Match

This week’s project takes the opportunity to focus on the art movement known as Fluxus. We’ll use as the starting point a 1955 composition by Yoko Ono. Her work is titled “Lighting Piece” and it consists of a single, simple sentence: “Light a match and watch till it goes out.” It is one of a number of pieces that Ono produced as part of Fluxus. For this week’s Disquiet Junto project, please interpret her instruction as closely or as loosely as you choose.

Deadline: Monday, August 6, at 11:59pm wherever you are.

Length: Your finished work should be as long or short as you wish to make it, though longer than a five minutes seems unlikely.

Information: Please when posting your track on SoundCloud, 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.

Title/Tag: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0031-onomatch” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.

Download: As always, you don’t have to set your track for download, but it would be preferable.

Linking: When posting the track please include this information:

Project in German:

Disquiet Junto Project 0031: Onos Streichholz

Diese Woche ergreift das Project die Gelegenheit, sich auf eine als Fluxus bekannt gewordene Kunstrichtung zu konzentrieren. Als Ausgangspunkt werden wir eine Komposition von Yoko Ono von 1955 verwenden. Ihre Arbeit trägt den Titel “Lighting Piece” und besteht aus einem einzelnen, simplen Satz: “Entzünde ein Streichholz und beobachte es, bis es verlöscht.” Es gehört zu einer Reihe von Stücken, die Ono als Teil von Fluxus hervorgebracht hat. Für das dieswöchige Disquiet Junto Project interpretiert ihre Anweisung bitte so wörtlich oder so frei wie ihr möchtet.

Abgabefrist: Montag, 6. August, um 23:59 Uhr, wo immer ihr seid.

Länge: Eure fertige Arbeit kann so lang oder so kurz, wie ihr wollt sein, obwohl länger als fünf Minuten unwahrscheinlich scheint.

Information: Bitte fügt eurem Track, wenn ihr ihn auf Soundcloud hochladet, eine Beschreibung des Planungs-, Kompositions- und Aufnahmeprozesses hinzu. Diese Beschreibung ist essentieller Bestandteil des kommunikativen Austauschs, der Disquiet Junto eigen ist.

Titel/Tag: Wenn ihr euren Track der Disquiet Junto Gruppe auf Soundcloud.com hinzufügt, schließt bitte die Bezeichnung “disquiet0031-onomatch” im Titel und als Tag mit ein.

Download: Wie immer, ihr müsst eure Tracks nicht zum Download freigeben, es wäre aber wünschenswert.

Disquiet Junto Projesi 0031: Ono’s Match (Ono’nun Kibriti)

Bu haftanın projesi Fluxus adıyla bilinen sanat akımına odaklanıyor. Başlangıç noktası olarak Yoko Ono’nun 1955 tarihli bir bestesini kullanacağız. Bu çalışmanın adı “Lighting Piece” ve tek bir basit cümleden ibaret: “Light a match and watch till it goes out (Bir kibrit yak ve sönene dek izle).” Bu, Ono’nun Fluxus akımı dahilinde ürettiği bir çok işten birisi. Bu haftanın Disquiet Junto projesi için bu talimatları dilediğinizce sadık ya da serbest bir biçimde yorumlayın.

Son Teslim Tarihi: 6 ağustos pazartesi, 23:59 (bulunduğunuz ülkenin saatine göre)

Uzunluk: Besteniz istediğiniz kadar kısa ya da uzun olabilir, fakat 5 dakikadan uzun olması pek olası değil.
