Disquiet Junto Project 0083: R#d#ct#d

The Project: Treat a page from recently declassified documents related to NSA collection of telephone metadata records as a graphically notated score.

20130801-redacted

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, August 1, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, August 5, 2013, as the deadline.

These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):
