Each Thursday in the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.com and at Disquiet.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.
Tracks will be added to this playlist for the duration of the project.
This assignment was made in the early evening, California time, on Thursday, April 30, 2015, with a deadline of 11:59pm wherever you are on Monday, May 4, 2015.
These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):
Disquiet Junto Project 0174: Glove Songs Play something on your favorite instrument — wearing gloves.
Step 1: Think of the instrument on which you are most proficient. (Touch screen interfaces such as iOS devices are excluded from this project.)
Step 2: Choose a piece of music you’ve recorded that employs that instrument.
Step 3: Re-record that same piece of music, this time wearing gloves.
Step 4: Upload your track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud. When posting, if possible include a link to the original (non-gloves) version of the piece.
Step 5: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
Deadline: This assignment was made in the early evening, California time, on Thursday, April 30, 2015, with a deadline of 11:59pm wherever you are on Monday, May 4, 2015.
Length: The length of your finished work should be roughly the length of the original.
Upload: Please when posting your track on SoundCloud, only upload one track for this assignment, and 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. Photos, video, and lists of equipment are always appreciated.
Title/Tag: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0174-glovesongs” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: It is preferable that your track is set as downloadable, and that it allows for attributed remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution).
Linking: When posting the track, please be sure to include this information:
