Disquiet Junto Project 0454: Lsoo Vneg

The Assignment: Encode the name of someone you love into a piece of music.

Each Thursday in the Disquiet Junto group, 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. (A SoundCloud account is helpful but not required.) There’s no pressure to do every project. It’s weekly so that you know it’s there, every Thursday through Monday, when you have the time.

Deadline: This project’s deadline is Monday, September 14, 2020, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, September 10, 2020.

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

Disquiet Junto Project 0454: Lsoo Vneg
The Assignment: Encode the name of someone you love into a piece of music.

Step 1: Choose someone for whom you want to compose a piece of music.

Step 2: Adopt an existing way of encoding that person’s name into notes, or come up with your own schema.

Step 3: Record a piece of music using the system selected in Step 2 as applied to the name selected in Step 1.

Note: You don’t need to announce the person’s name publicly. You can keep it secret for yourself, or each other.

Seven More Important Steps When Your Track Is Done:

Step 1: Include “disquiet0454” (no spaces or quotation marks) in the name of your tracks.

Step 2: If your audio-hosting platform allows for tags, be sure to also include the project tag “disquiet0454” (no spaces or quotation marks). If you’re posting on SoundCloud in particular, this is essential to subsequent location of tracks for the creation of a project playlist.

Step 3: Upload your tracks. It is helpful but not essential that you use SoundCloud to host your tracks.

Step 4: Post your tracks in the following discussion thread at llllllll.co:

https://llllllll.co/t/disquiet-junto-project-0454-lsoo-vneg/

Step 5: Annotate your tracks with a brief explanation of your approach and process.

Step 6: If posting on social media, please consider using the hashtag #disquietjunto so fellow participants are more likely to locate your communication.

Step 7: Then listen to and comment on tracks uploaded by your fellow Disquiet Junto participants.

Additional Details:

Deadline: This project’s deadline is Monday, September 14, 2020, at 11:59pm (that is, just before midnight) wherever you are. It was posted on Thursday, September 10, 2020.

Length: The length is up to you. Maybe keep it short and sweet.

Title/Tag: When posting your tracks, please include “disquiet0454” in the title of the tracks, and where applicable (on SoundCloud, for example) as a tag.

Upload: When participating in this project, 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.

Download: It is always best to set your track as downloadable and allowing for attributed remixing (i.e., a Creative Commons license permitting non-commercial sharing with attribution, allowing for derivatives).

For context, when posting the track online, please be sure to include this following information:
