Disquiet Junto Project 0112: Calendrical Score
This week’s instruction is simple: Your past week’s calendar (February 13 – February 19) is your score. Each hour is a note or chord. Each quarter day is a measure. Please post an image of your calendar in the process — feel free, of course, to block out anything personal you don’t want to share.
Deadline: Monday, February 24, 2014, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your finished work should be between 2 minute and 5 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: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0112-calendrical”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).
