Note: The SoundCloud.com site is experiencing some connectivity issues as of this project’s starting. If you have difficulty accessing the Disquiet Junto page, try another browser. If that doesn’t work, then when posting your track add it to this page as a comment, and I’ll add it manually to the project set. Sorry for the hassle.
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.
Tracks by participants will be added to this playlist as the project proceeds:
This project was published in the evening, California time, on Thursday, January 16, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, January 20, 2014, as the deadline.
These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):
