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 afternoon, California time, on Thursday, October 24, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, October 28, 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 0095: Discuss Amongst
This week’s Disquiet Junto project is fairly open-ended. You don’t need to create a new track, necessarily. What you need to do is to post a single track, a relatively recent one, that you would like feedback on from your fellow music- and sound-makers in the Disquiet Junto.
There are three steps to this project, and each step is equally important:
Step 1: Upload a track. Please do not post a track that has previously appeared in the Disquiet Junto.
Step 2: When filling in the various informational fields, be sure to write in some length 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.
Step 3: As tracks are added by other musicians, be sure to comment on at least two or three of them. The more people who participate, the stronger the feedback and conversation will be.
Deadline: Monday, October 28, 2013, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your track should have a duration of between one and six minutes.
Title/Tag: Include the term “disquiet0095-discussamongst” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: Please consider employing 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:
