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):

Disquiet Junto Project 0124: Derive and Thrive

Create a new piece of music by using nothing but the first 45 seconds from these three pieces of music:

Erissoma’s “The miracle in the human brain” from the addSensor netlabel:

Kayaka’s “O” from the As4cords netlabel:

Background: All of this music is available for free, non-commercial download and creative reuse thanks to a Creative Commons license. This project is part of a series of “netlabel remixes”intended to promote that sort of thoughtful, collaborative sharing.

Deadline: Monday, May 19, 2014, at 11:59pm wherever you are.

Length: Your finished work should be between 2 minute and 4 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 “disquiet0124-deriveandthrive” in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.

Download: Due to the nature of the source material, your track should be set as downloadable, and with a license that 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:
