Each Thursday in the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.com and at Disquiet.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 in the project will be added to this setlist:
This assignment was made in the evening, California time, on Thursday, September 18, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, September 22, 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 0142: Call Center The Assignment: Make music from the near silence of phone calls.
This week’s project explores the near-silence inherent in phone calls. These are the steps:
Step 1: Record the near-silent sound of phone calls between your phone and three different other phones.
Step 2: Develop a short, original piece that accentuates the differences between the sounds of these three calls.
Step 3: Upload the track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.
Step 4: Listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow participants.
Deadline: Monday, September 22, 2014, at 11:59pm wherever you are.
Length: Your finished work should be between one and three minutes in length.
Upload: Please when posting your track on SoundCloud, only upload one track for this assignment, and 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 “disquiet0142-callcenter” 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).
Linking: When posting the track, please be sure to include this information:
