Each Thursday in the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.com and at disquiet.com/junto, 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 will be added to this playlist for the duration of the project.
This assignment was made in the evening, California time, on Thursday, September 17, 2015, with a deadline of 11:59pm wherever you are on Monday, September 21, 2015.
These are the instructions that went out to the group’s email list (at tinyletter.com/disquiet-junto):
Disquiet Junto Project 0194: Clock Play Record the sound of a clock and make something playful and sweet out of it.
Sometimes Junto projects have very detailed rules, and other times the rules are, true to very first Junto project, simple and open-ended. This week’s project is the latter. (Thanks to Brian Biggs for the timely creative nudge.)
Step 1: Record the sound of a clock and make something playful and sweet out of it. (You can also use pre-recorded sounds, like those at freesound.org, if you prefer.)
Step 2: Upload your completed track to the Disquiet Junto group on SoundCloud.
Step 3: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.
Deadline: This assignment was made in the evening, California time, on Thursday, September 17, 2015, with a deadline of 11:59pm wherever you are on Monday, September 21, 2015.
Length: The length of your finished work should be between roughly one and three minutes long.
Upload: Please when posting your track on SoundCloud, only upload one track for this assignment, and be sure to 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. Photos, video, and lists of equipment are always appreciated.
Title/Tag: When adding your track to the Disquiet Junto group on Soundcloud.com, please include the term “disquiet0194-clockplay”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).
