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 22, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, August 26, 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 0086: Hyperloop
This week’s project may have the simplest, and broadest, instruction in all of the 86 consecutive weeks that the Disquiet Junto has been running. Thanks to the musician Cinchel of Chicago, Illinois, for helping to prompt this idea. The project has just one instruction:
