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.
This assignment was made in the evening, California time, on Thursday, December 18, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, December 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 0155: Mix Match The Assignment: Take a track and its remix and meld them into something new.
This is the next to the last project of 2014. It’s a remix of a remix, and of the track the remix was based on. These are the steps:
Step 1: Download the following two tracks. The first is “Waiting…” by Yellow Salamand’r and the second is a reworking of it, titled “Waiting (A Yellow Salamander Re-hash),” by Colab.
Step 2: Create a new track that combines the two source tracks. Don’t add any new audio, though you can transform the source material as you wish.
Step 3: Upload the finished track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.
Step 4: Listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
Length: Your finished work should be between roughly 3 to 4 minutes long.
Deadline: This assignment was made in the evening, California time, on Thursday, December 18, with 11:59pm on the following Monday, December 22, 2014, as the deadline.
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 “disquiet0155-mixmatch”in the title of your track, and as a tag for your track.
Download: For this project, due to the source audio, your track should be set with a Creative Commons license, such as CC BY-NC-SA 3.0, that allows adaptive reworking.
