Disquiet Junto Project 0124: Derive and Thrive

Recombinate work from the netlabels addSensor, As4cords, and Audiotalaia.

Update 2014.05.16: Please note there were two text errors when this project was first posted. The netlabel Audiotalaia was misidentified as Audioitalia, and the Kayaka track “O”was misidentified as “Blackening.”


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 early evening, California time, on Thursday, May 15, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, May 19, 2014, as the deadline.

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