Disquiet Junto Project 0093: Netlabel Hybrid

The Project: combine music from three different netlabels to create one track.

20131010-hybrid

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 10, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, October 14, 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 0093: Netlabel Hybrid

This is a shared-sample project. Create a single new piece of music by employing the selected material of each the following three tracks. See below.

All three of these tracks were initially posted to the Internet with a Creative Commons license encouraging derivative reworking. This project — one in an ongoing series of netlabel remixes undertaken by the Disquiet Junto — is intended to address the unfortunate popularity of “ND”(i.e., “no derivatives”) licenses among netlabels.

Please only use the following material in your piece; you can transform in any way you choose, but do not introduce any new source material. The music originated on these three netlabels: Birdsong, Inoquo, and Qunabu.

1: Use the first 10 seconds of “Dark City” by Marc Pastco off the 12AX7 album, released by inoquo.com, based in Barcelona, Spain.

MP3: http://goo.gl/MXDTJv

2: Use the second 10 seconds (i.e., from :11 to :20) of “Zamenhof Blues” by Digital_Me (Shay Librowski) off the The Accordion E.P., released by birdsong.co.il, based in Israel.

MP3: http://goo.gl/ysydcH

3: Use the third 10 seconds (i.e., from :21 to :30) of “Archean” by PlotKA off the Circulation of Deposits EP, released by netlabel.qunabu.com, based in GdaÅ„sk, Poland.

MP3: http://goo.gl/pM9AqI

Deadline: Monday, October 14, 2013, at 11:59pm wherever you are.

Length: Your track should have a duration of between one and five minutes.

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: Include the term “disquiet0093-netlabelhybrid”in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.

Download: Due to the nature of these releases, you must employ 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:
