Each Thursday 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 in the Junto is open: just join and participate.
This assignment was made in the evening, California time, on Thursday, June 20, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, June 24, 2013, as the deadline.
These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):
Disquiet Junto Project 0077: Netlabel Splice
This is a shared-sample project. Create a single new piece of music by employing the selected material (see below) of each the following three tracks. All three were initially posted to the Internet with a Creative Commons license encouraging derivative reworking. This project — one in an ongoing series of netlabel remixes undertaken by the Disquiet Junto — is intended to address the unfortunate popularity of “ND” (i.e., “no derivatives”) licenses among netlabels. Please only use the following material in your piece; you can transform in any way you choose, but do not introduce any new source material. The music originated on the netlabels tecnonucleo, Split Notes, and Tonstube.
1: The first 30 seconds of “20 200 2000 20000” off the album Sean but not Heard by Sean Archibald:
2: The final 30 seconds of “Aftermath” off the album Transmission by Unicode:
3: From 3:00 to 3:30 of “C2” off the album Cràter by Adrià Bofarull and Joan Saura.
Deadline: Monday, June 24, 2013, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your track should have a duration of between two minutes and five minutes.
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: Include the term “disquiet0077-netlabelsplice” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: Due to the nature of these releases, you must employ a license that allows for attributed, commerce-free remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution).
Linking: When posting the track, be sure to include this information:
