Disquiet Junto Project 0117: Naviar Junto Haiku

Compose an original piece of music in response to a haiku.

20140327-naviar

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 project was published in the evening, California time, on Thursday, March 27, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, March 31, 2014, as the deadline.

These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):

Disquiet Junto Project 0117: Naviar Junto Haiku

This week’s project involves members of the Disquiet Junto participating in another music-making community: the Naviar Haiku Project. Already members of the Junto have joined in the Naviar, and this is an opportunity to add to those ranks. Each week participants in the Naviar Haiku Project compose original pieces of music in response to a shared, provided haiku. The following are the steps for this week.

Step 1: This is the haiku for the 12th Naviar Haiku project entry:

“They encounter

A cathedral of ice

At the end of the world”

Step 2: Compose an original piece of music in response.

Step 3: Upload the file to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud and describe your approach and process in the text field associated with the track.

Step 4: Also consider uploading the file to the Naviar Laboratory group on SoundCloud.

Step 5: Listen to other members’ tracks as they appear in the Disquiet Junto feed on SoundCloud, and comment on them when you have the time.

Additional Background: (1) At the end of every month a selection of tracks will be available on Naviar’s Bandcamp page as a pay-what-you-want album. (2) The haiku by Nite Rote. (3) The Naviar deadline is Wednesday, April 2, but this Junto project is to be completed by March 31. (4) The haiku was inspired by Werner Herzog’s documentary Encounters at the End of the World.

Deadline: Monday, March 31, 2014, at 11:59pm wherever you are.

Length: Length is for you to determine, but between one and five minutes is recommended.

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 “disquiet0117-naviarjunto” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track. Also, per the Naviar rules, please include “Naviarhaiku012 – They encounter”in the title and as tag.

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:

One Trackback

  • By Building on “Fever Pitch” on May 13, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    […] I hadn’t recorded the piece of music, “Fever Pitch,” as part of Junto 0315 initially. I recorded “Fever Pitch,” in fact, for an entirely different weekly music project series, one called Weekly Beats. When I subsequently recognized that the simple track, just a guitar line filtered by a modular synthesizer, fit the constraints of Junto project 0315, I posted it for that as well. There is a lot of cross-pollination among only compositional series. For example, I wrote a poem for the great Naviar Haiku series on the occasion of its 40th weekly project, and some people have cross-posted pieces of music between Naviar and Junto, which share a bit of the same roster in general, and we have collaborated once or twice. […]
