Disquiet Junto Project 0052: Bump Foot CC
This is a shared-sample project. Create a new piece of music by employing segments from the following three tracks. All were initially released on the great netlabel Bump Foot:
The first 20 seconds of “Bongo” off the Aguas Tonicas album Los DesposeÃdos: http://archive.org/download/foot212/foot21209-aguastonicas-bongo.mp3
“Broken Robots” off the Gridline album Red Music: http://archive.org/download/foot211/foot21103-gridline-brokenrobots.mp3
- “The Cat in the Ocean” off the Pics Frunk album Low Voltage:
We’re doing this to pay thanks to the open-minded Bump Foot, which not only releases its music for free download but also employs the Creative Commons license that allows for derivative works. There are hundreds of netlabels out there, but only a small percentage allow for reworking. These Junto netlabel remix projects are intended to promote reworking as itself a means of music distribution.
Deadline: Monday, December 31, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your finished work should be between 2 and 5 minutes in length.
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: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0052-bumpcc”in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: For this project, your track should be set as downloadable, and allow for attributed remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution).
Linking: When posting the track, be sure to include this information:
